Bread Pudding For One

Hi Y'all,

I love bread pudding and since it's me this morning, I knew I wasn't going to be able to eat bread pudding made for 12 people. I've made bread pudding for a single person before and every time I make it for myself, it always comes out great. I'm going to share with you the recipe and some pictures. Enjoy!

Bread Pudding For One Recipe

  • 1 slice of day old bread
  • 1/2 teaspoon of melted butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (for my foreign readers, preheat your oven to 177 degrees Celsius), Break the slice of bread into small pieces into a small baking dish. Drizzle melted butter over the bread.

In a mixing bowl (I used a cereal bowl), combine the egg, vanilla, sugar, milk and cinnamon. Beat until well mixed. When the ingredients are mixed, pour the egg mixture over the bread and pat down with a fork until the bread has soaked up the egg mixture.

Bread before the egg mixture.

Soaked in the egg mixture.

I always cook my bread pudding in a water bath. Fill a larger cooking dish with water that fills half way. Place the bread pudding into the water bath and place into the oven for 25 minutes. Let the bread pudding cool for a few minutes.

Add syrup and enjoy!

Total bedhead!

Forgot I had the self timer on and when I tried closing the app, it kept taking pictures, haha.

I hope you do try it, y'all, and enjoy it! Bread pudding has always been a favorite and I can't wait to make it for Christmas!


  1. Sounds like french toast over here. All the same ingredients at least.

    1. They're made similarly - cooking method is different though. I'm not a big fan of raisins, but usually they have raisins and a different sauce. I didn't feel like dragging out the mixer to make a vanilla sauce (cream, a lot of sugar and vanilla), so I opted for syrup. Haha. The one I make for Christmas will have a Jack Daniels sauce. :)

  2. I'm glad that you put it in the oven; for a moment I was trying to work out the appeal of soggy bread! Looks tasty. :)

    1. I actually like bread pudding more than French Toast. French toast is fried and only with syrup. Bread pudding is more cakey and I can make all sorts of icings. :D
