So this past weekend, I made bread pudding for the first time. And not just any bread pudding, butterscotch bread pudding. Delicious. It was a super simple recipe I found online and I post it here for posterity so I don’t lose it.
Sorry, no pics this time around. But I will be making this again soon so I’ll update the post with a pic the next time around.

Serves 8 (but more likely 12)
- 1 (10.75 ounce) loaf day-old bread, torn into small pieces
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups half and half
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 3 eggs beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350° and butter a 9 x 13 baking dish
In a large bowl, combine bread, milk, sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla and butterscotch chips; mixture should be the consistency of oatmeal. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven 1 – 1.5 hours, until set to personal liking. I like a firmer bread pudding so I baked mine for 1.5 hours. If you prefer a looser bread pudding, bake for about 1 hour.
Serve warm or cold. Yummy with a scoop of ice cream.
