  • 1 large loaf white bread I typically use an 18 oz loaf
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • butter for greasing the pan


  • Grease a 3-quart (9x13 inch) casserole pan.
  • Cut the bread into cubes and place in the greased pan.
  • In a very large bowl, whisk the eggs.
  • Then whisk in the sugar, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, & nutmeg. 
  • Pour the egg mixture over top of the bread, tossing the bread as necessary so that it's all covered in the egg mixture.
  • Allow the pudding to sit for 20 minutes so that the bread soaks up the egg mixture. As you wait, preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil and continue baking for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  • Let it cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing into pieces and serving. 



*Store leftovers covered in the fridge. Bread pudding is best served warm. You can either warm it up in the microwave or preheat the oven to 350F and bake covered for 10 minutes to warm it up.
