Eggnog Bread Pudding Recipe (2024)

I love the holidays, but they can be a bit stressful. I think it’s partly because we are just so busy. From buying the perfect gifts, decorating, cleaning, cooking and baking, there is so much on our plates. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change the holiday chaos for anything. Instead, I meet those challenges with a positive attitude and hope for the best. The good news is that I’ve never been disappointed. Spending time with family and friends is priceless and makes all the extra effort well worth it.

Eggnog Bread Pudding Recipe (5)

I use Dempster’s White Bread both on its own for toast and sandwiches and in my recipes. It’s super soft, high quality and always yields a fabulous result.

The first step is the bread into six cups of bread cubes. It’s similar to how you would start out making stuffing for your Christmas turkey.

After you’ve whisked the rest of the ingredients together, add the bread cubes and stir to combine. Then, let everything get happy together for about 10 minutes. The flavours will have a chance to permeate the bread cubes.

My easy hack is to make bread pudding in a springform pan! It’s easy to remove and the pudding holds together beautifully.

The recipe takes one hour to bake so you can visit with your guests while your kitchen starts to smell a wonderfully sweet aroma.

To make it even more festive, sprinkle icing sugar on top.

The icing sugar adds another element of decadence and adds to the festive presentation.

I also added some fresh raspberries to give it a pop of colour. It’s such a pretty dessert

Serve it warm from the oven with a big glass of eggnog. Each bite practically melts in your mouth. The flavour of the eggnog soaks right into the bread so it’s truly a heavenly experience to eat.

Next time you’re in a pinch with unexpected guests or just want a dessert with mega WOW factor, this Eggnog Bread Pudding is a must-try. It’s a staple on our holiday menu because of how easy it is to make and how much it’s enjoyed by everyone who tries it.
