Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Whisk in the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the raisins.
  2. Generously butter the bread with the softened butter. Submerge the bread in the egg mixture and set aside for a least 20 minutes. Use your hands or a large spoon to break the soaked bread into smaller chunks.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C 350°F and generously butter a 9x11 inch baking dish.
  4. Transfer the bread mixture to the baking dish and drizzle with the melted butter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top of the pudding puffs and browns and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. 50 minutes to 1 hour.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature topped with vanilla ice cream.

I use sweet bread (massa sovada) for bread pudding and French toast. Since my children were tiny they wouldn’t have any other kind and we are lucky enough to live near New Bedford and have our pick of Portuguese bakeries. I like to buy it already toasted and slice it into small bites. Have you ever substituted citron for the raisins? Just wondering. Thanks for this great recipe!

A home style bread is best but you can use any good bread.

Can this bread be made and then frozen to reheat at another time? If so, when should baking take place, before or after freezing? Thank you :)

Hi Lorna, if you are going to freeze it, do it after baking it, place the bread pudding in a few freezer bags and perhaps some plastic wrap as well. I don't recommend freezing it as there will be a bit of frost on the bread pudding, and there’s no way around it.
