  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 55 min.
  • Makes
    12 servings (1-1/2 cups sauce)


  • 16 slices cinnamon bread, crusts removed, cubed
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup white baking chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • SAUCE:
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped


  • In a greased 13x9-in. baking dish, layer half of the bread cubes, cranberries, vanilla chips and pecans. Repeat layers. Drizzle with butter.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, 3/4 cup sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and allspice until blended; pour over bread mixture. Let stand for 15-30 minutes.

    I was so disappointed with this recipe. I followed the directions perfectly and it came out dry, dry, dry.

    I have made this bread pudding several times and it is a real hit every time. It is elegant and very tasty but so simple to make! I am able to get a cinnamon egg bread in our grocery store bakery and it makes this recipe terrific.
