Leftover Cinnamon Swirl Bread = BREAD PUDDING

I get a phone call and everyone is meeting at my girlfriends house for a play date with the kiddos. All of the kids have been acting up because we have been stranded in the house for days. We have been hit with downpours all week in Central Florida. Of course I jumped at the idea of some grown up interaction. BUT what am I going to bring within two hours?! I look around my kitchen to get ideas. And then I see my Cinnamon Swirl Bread (below). It is the second loaf and it has been sitting there for a few days. I love Bread I decide to throw it together. It turned out amazing and it was a huge hit. As you can tell from the picture at the bottom. All the mommies loved it.
This is what I brought home....haha. As you can see, It was a huge hit. My Husband got the tiny little piece when he got home from work. LOL.

Bread Pudding
1 loaf of stale CINNAMON SEIRL BREAD (, cut in cubes
4 eggs
1tsp. vanilla
1 15 oz. evaporated milk
1 1/2 cps. milk
1/2 cp brown sugar
1/2 cp. white sugar
1-2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cp. butter
1. I took the eggs, vanilla, milks, sugars and cinnamon and combined. I added the cubed stale bread into a greased 9x13 pan. I then topped it with the egg and milk mixture. I kept pushing down to make sure all the bread was soaked through.
2. I cubed the butter and scattered on top
3. Cooked on 324 for an hour to hour and fifteen. When the toothpick comes out clean.
4. I then topped it with more brown sugar, cinnamon and powdered sugar.


  1. This looks totally delicious! I want it but my cinnamon bread is finished. I gave one to my husband's auntie. Well, I can make some more. But you see, now you have caused me a problem because hubby read my comments on my blog and saw the bread pudding idea. He thinks its wonderful. More work for me now :). Seriously, it looks fantastic!
    p.s. Im from florida too (Broward County)

  2. Margate. But actually, here in England we are having tons of rain too. In the last few days its been raining all day (though not as hard as it does in florida). I have bookmarked this page. I definitely want to make this. But I'm not going to make it till after I get back from Barcelona. I have a bathing suit that I am supposed to fit my ever expanding bum into. This bread pudding looks like a trouble maker... a delicious one :). Good idea with sugar, it probably makes it nice and sweet and crunchy.

  3. I've got to confess, I've actually let bread stale ON PURPOSE so that I could have an excuse to make bread pudding :) This bread would be a PERFECT reason to do that!! Awesome.

  4. This bread pudding sounds heavenly with the cinnamon swirl bread. Excellent recipe!

  5. cinnamon swirl bread made into bread pudding?? that sounds great! it is so funny that your husband ended up with a small piece :p

  6. I bet that bread pudding went fast! I love the flavors, but mostly I love bread pudding. On another note, arrrgh! Why won't this rain go away?? I live in Winter Park and since our Memorial Beach and grilling plans have been foiled by this weather, I think I'm going for a meatloaf today.

    Hope your holiday is a bit brighter too!

  7. sooo appetizing...i thought i was going to bed full...but now your writing and photography has made me hungry again... gurgling tummy! This reminds me of my mum and her cinnamon rolls!

    Lovely website and thanks for stopping by mine!



  8. It would be hard to find stale cinnamon swirl bread in our house (it would be gone within moments of coming out of the oven) but if it ever happens, this recipe will be called upon to perform its magic!


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
