Fourth of July Bread Pudding

This old fashioned bread pudding is a tradition by my grandmother, then mother, and now me for serving at the 4th of July cook-out we have every year for family and close friends. Enjoy!



  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups cubed or torn stale bread (I use French or Italian bread)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup raisins


Heat milk just until scalded. Place bread cubes in a bowl; pour hot milk over the bread. Cool. Add the sugar, salt, cinnamon or nutmeg, eggs, raisins. Pour mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set. Service a dessert sauce or whipped topping. I serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

When having more family/friends than an 8-inch baking dish can serve, I make two 8-inch square baking dishes of the pudding.
