Amish Bread Pudding

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin Tags: , ,

Amish Bread Pudding is scrumptious!  Drizzled with homemade caramel sauce and served warm.  This is an old fashioned recipe that has been served for ages.  It was an easy way to use up bread that may be going stale.  When making this, you can use a loaf of french bread also.  French bread is easier to cube up and has a crustier texture to soak up the other ingredients.  To make bread pudding even more special, serve it with whipped cream on top.

Amish Bread Pudding

4 cups dry bread

2 cups milk

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

2 beaten eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon



1 teaspoon vanilla

Place bread cubes in baking pan.  Scald the milk with the butter.  Add sugar, eggs, salt and vanilla.  Mix well.  Pour over the bread.  Sprinkle with cinnamon, raisins and walnuts.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes.  Serve with Caramel Sauce recipe below.

 Caramel Sauce for Pudding

2 cups brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup water

2 Tablespoons flour

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

Add brown sugar and butter to a medium saucepan.  On low heat, stir until butter is melted. Remove from heat.  Add water and vanilla.  Beat eggs and slowly add the melted mixture into the beaten eggs one Tablespoon at a time.  Stir after each addition until the eggs are the same temperature as the mixture.  Pour eggs and caramel sauce back into the pan and stir.  Add 2 tablespoons flour to the 1/2 cup of water, stir until there are no lumps.  (I like to use cornstarch instead of flour to thicken sauces and gravies.)  Pour slowly into caramel mixture and stir on low heat until thickened.  Pour over baked pudding and serve warm.  You may add whipped cream if you like.

For any of you or your family members that have nut allergies, keep in mind, any of these recipes that I have posted that contain nuts, the nuts are optional except for the Chocolate-Caramel Pecan Pie recipe.   This pie recipe is made with a nut crust.
