Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding

Hello, hello, fellow foodies! We hope everyone had a great summer. The Porto Bellas’ are back with a few recipes to keep you warm and in shape this holiday season! I’m super excited to share some healthy ‘green meals’, smoothies, and a few festive dishes. Those won’t be so healthy. Warning. (This is one of them).

So lets talk bread pudding. Super easy (the way I like to cook, incase you forgot), and always a favourite around the table- bread pudding is perfect to bring over as dessert (with a little tub of ice cream maybe?), or prepare it for Christmas brunch, or… Sunday brunch (meh, why not!). I added walnuts and cranberries for a little bit of that festive feel- but go ahead and use any kind of bread. (Egg bread would probably be amazing here). I just use whatever I have on hand…

Ahh, the house smells so good right now!

Bread Pudding

There are so many variations of bread pudding out there, so feel free to make it your own. Add apples, pears, dried fruit, chocolate chips, raisins, even a spoonful of mascarpone. (Just use a spoonful or two less of milk). Go crazy, kids!

Serves: 8 very healthy portions.


  • 7 slices of white bread
  • 3 Tbsp margarine (melted)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a few dashes of nutmeg & a little dash of salt
  • handful of chopped walnuts & cranberries


Preheat oven to 350 F. Tear bread into small pieces and place in lightly greased baking dish (7 x 11). Sprinkle melted margarine over bread. In a large bowl, add all other ingredients. Mix. Pour over bread in baking dish. Using a fork, push down bread mixture slightly. Bake for 45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.


My boyfriend recently discovered this band from our city (Montreal), and I doubt it’ll take long for the rest of the world to catch on. If you like alternative/rock, you’ll love ‘The Damn Truth’. Here’s their hit, ‘Kinda Awkward’.

  1. oh man, i’ve been on a huge bread pudding kick as well. i like to throw a little bit of mashed kabocha squash into the mix for a little bit of extra sweetness (and creamy texture).

    there are also rumors that i have, on occasion, put chocolate covered coffee beans into the mix as well. which are totally unfounded, of course. that would be totally irresponsible. 😉

Omg... I need to leave a comment
