Pecan Pie Bread Pudding Recipe

Is it pecan pie? Is it bread and butter pudding? No it’s both! What a triumph this is. Nutty, creamy, comforting and fabulous! It is a delicious twist on two classics.
This is a true comfort food. It is delicious served with a drizzle of cream but it is even yummier with a huge scoop of your favourite ice-cream too. Now we personally like it with vanilla but we are sure that it will work nicely with other flavours too. Give it a try it is simply fantastic.
4 Eggs
450ml Whole Milk
1 ½ Cups Half and Half
16oz White Bread (Older bread is fine)
½ Cup Salted Butter
1 ½ Cups Light Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Corn Syrup.
2 Cups Pecan Nuts
1Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
Large Bowl
Medium Saucepan
Measuring Jug
Oven proof dish
Wooden spoon
Spatula or Tablespoon
Whisk (try the Mr Whipstir Whisk)
Bread knife
Prep Time: 20 mins (plus 45 minutes for cooking)                                              Serves:  8

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees  Fahrenheit
  • Whisk the eggs, milk, and single cream together in a jug making sure the mixture is whisked thoroughly and set aside.

TIP: Why not try the Mr Whipstir Whisk? It takes half the time of an ordinary whisk and is twice as effective. 

  • Cut your bread into cubes and place in a large bowl. Older bread is fine to use.

TIP: Why not use the World’s Sharpest Knife to cut the bread. It is a multi-purpose knife that is a superb bread knife. 

  • Pour the egg, cream and milk mixture on top of the cubes of bread and leave aside to allow it to soak in.
  • In your saucepan add your butter, sugar and syrup and gently heat until all of the sugar granules have dissolved.
  • Add your pecan nuts, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to the melted sugar mixture and mix together.
  • Put you soaked bread into a heat proof dish and add you pecan mixture and stir the pecans in well.
  • Cover with tin foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the tin foil after 30 minutes and continue to cook to brown.
  • Once brown remove from the oven and allow to cool for a while before serving.
  • Serve with a drizzle of single cream or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
