Bread pudding is my husband’s love language. I can’t tell you how many bread puddings I have made him over the years. However, I have never made a bread pudding that was this easy. Lucky for me, he loves this recipe. Consequently, I have said goodbye to the other recipes because this is my go-to now!

How can you beat three ingredients in a dessert recipe? Plus, the homemade caramel sauce drizzled on top only uses two pantry items! Just so we are all on the same page, that is 5 ingredients in the whole dessert!

You will love the incredible cinnamon and vanilla flavors in this bread pudding too! The cinnamon swirl bread and vanilla coffee creamer is just the ticket. The caramel drizzle is the cherry on top and if you are feeling adventurous add a scoop of vanilla ice cream too!

Recipe Notes

Stale bread is best for bread puddings as it soaks up the custard mixture better. You can leave the bread pieces out overnight to dry out or toss on a baking sheet and place in a warm oven until the bread pieces feel dry (stale).
