Ingredients for Bread Pudding

  • 1 Nestlé MILKMAID Mini
  • 2 cups Nestlé a+ Toned Milk
  • 6 Bread Slices
  • 25 gms Butter
  • 50 gms Kishmish (Raisins)

How to make Bread Pudding

  • Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to160ºC. Trim the edges of bread slices, butter the slices on both sides and cut into two triangular pieces. Arrange the slices in layers in an 8” x 6” ovenproof dish, sprinkling kishmish in be4tween the layers.
  • Step 2: Mix Nestlé MILKMAID, milk, eggs, nutmeg and beat lightly. Pour the mixture over the buttered slices.
  • Step 3: Bake in a moderately hot oven (175ºC) for 30-40 minutes till the top is golden brown. Serve hot or cold as desired.


  • Day-old or slightly stale bread works best as it absorbs the custard mixture better.
  • Combine different types of bread, like brioche, challah, or French bread, for more texture and flavour.
  • Cut the bread into uniform slices to ensure even soaking and baking.
  • Let the bread soak in the custard mixture for at least 30 minutes to absorb the flavours fully.
  • Bake the Bread Pudding in a water bath to prevent it from drying and ensure it is even cooked.
  • The Bread Pudding is done when the edges are set, and the centre is slightly jiggly but not liquid.
  • Allow the Bread Pudding to cool for a few minutes before serving to set the custard and make slicing easier.

3. How to store Bread Pudding?

After baking, allow the Bread Pudding to cool completely. Then, cover it tightly or transfer it to a shallow, airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. While it will stay fresh for 3-4 days, the freshness can vary depending on the Bread Pudding recipe you follow.

4. Can you freeze Bread Pudding?

Yes, Bread Pudding is a great make-ahead dessert. You can freeze it for up to 3 months to relish later. To do so, bake it in a foil pan if you plan to freeze it. Once it's cooled, wrap it tightly in a storage wrap, followed by at least one layer of foil to prevent freezer burn. If you have a sauce, freeze it in a separate container. When ready to thaw, transfer the wrapped pudding to the refrigerator overnight.
