Bread Pudding -> French Toast

The more I kept researching Christmas treats, I found myself staring at Bread Pudding recipes. I’ve only eaten it once before at Barona Casino’s Ranch House Buffet last year.  And because I’m in a festive mood, I figured I’d give it the ol’ college try.

I adapted the original recipe by using 10 ounces of the round Hawaiian Sweet Bread and using Half & half instead of milk.  I was hoping the sweetness of the Hawaiian Sweet Bread would make it outstanding, but I got carried away and used way too much bread. I left out the raisins the recipe called for. And oh yeah, I added nutmeg too.

What started out as my intentions for Bread Pudding resulted in French Toast!!! LOL.

It’s about an inch thick

Ingredients–oops, the jug of milk shouldn’t be in the photo!

This is great for breakfast or brunch…and it’s super easy too!

Bread Pudding -> French Toast

  • 10 oz of round Hawaiian Sweet Bread —10 oz is too much, use 7 or 8 oz
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pint Half & half
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 8 inch square baking pan with butter.
  2. Break bread into small pieces in baking pan. Drizzle melted butter over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, half & half, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
