This easy gluten-free bread pudding recipe is a great way to use up leftover dry bread in this popular dessert. If you’re not a big fan of raisins, you can omit them.
Traditional bread pudding has always been a favorite of mine.
It reminds me of a dessert version of French toast … what’s not to love about that? It’s a great recipe and the best part is how easy it is.
But obviously, the original recipe (a must-serve during the holiday season) is a no-go for gluten-free eaters. Luckily, with a few swaps and simple ingredients, it’s easy to come up with a homemade and easy gluten-free bread pudding that rivals the best bread pudding you’ve ever eaten.
Frequently Asked Questions about this Easy Gluten Free Bread Pudding Recipe:
What is the point of a water bath in baking?
A water bath is when you put one dish (in this case the dish with the bread pudding) inside a larger dish of water. The warm water helps keep the temperature more consistent. It also yields a more evenly cooked dish, which is especially important in recipes like this that contain a good bit of egg. Otherwise, the outside edges might get overdone and be somewhat tough.
Can I use “fresh” bread in this bread pudding recipe?
You can, but the results won’t be as good. Fresh bread doesn’t hold up as well to the “soaking” in the egg mixture. What I recommend is simply toasting your bread cubes to simulate dried-out, day-old bread. Cut the bread into cubes and toast in a 300 degree F oven for about 30 minutes.
