Maple Syrup Bread Pudding

Often referred to as “Poor Man’s Pudding,” bread pudding is the epitome of a frugal cooking. Rather than throwing stale bread away, it can be transformed to a wonderful ending to a meal.

5 cups of bread (any bread will do but a stale rustic loaf is best)
1 cups of milk or cream
1 cup of maple syrup
3 tablespoons of butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup of walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash salt


  • Preheat oven to 375º
  • Butter a 9″ x 5” loaf pan.
  • Cut bread into one-inch cubes.
  • Add bread to pan and dot with 3 tablespoons of butter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Mix milk, maple syrup, eggs, cinnamon, walnuts and salt and pour over heated bread.
  • Return to the oven and bake again for 30-40 minutes

Serve warm or cold, as is or top with fresh whipped cream.

    A friend at work had caramel coffee syrup, so used it in place of maple syrup – smells delish!
