Tips for making Blueberry Bread Pudding
- This is the perfect recipe for day old bread or biscuits! When the biscuits are “dried out”, they soak up the milk mixture more evenly.
- This bread pudding can be made a day ahead of time. Put the ingredients together and pour into the baking dish. Cover and keep in the fridge until you are ready to place it in the oven. It may require a few additional minutes of baking if it’s cold when placed in the oven.
- If you don’t want to use sweetened condensed milk, substitute a cup of milk and add a half cup of white or brown sugar to sweeten.
- Bread pudding can be reheated in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
- This recipe can be made as a dessert but it can also be served for breakfast. It’s perfect with a cup of coffee!
- Because this recipe contains milk and eggs, the bread pudding should be stored in the refrigerator. Put it in an air-tight container and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
