Nothing like an easy recipe that wows the guest every time. When ever I have some bread tidbits, heals or left over rolls it’s the perfect time for bread pudding. add fruit you want to step it up even more. Left over eggnog or chocolate milk is grand too. Be creative with this one.
- 6 eggs beaten
- I cup cream, or milk, or coconut cream
- 6 cups stale white bread cubed
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tbs cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup Tbs sweet liquor ( but not required) baileys, orange liquor, amaretto
- 1 heaping cup fruit. ( mixed berries, chopped apple w raisins, peach what do you have on the counter or freezer will determine your pudding. (Pictured mixed berry frozen that I thawed and folded in gently at end before baking and made additional compote)
Beat eggs and mix in all rest of ingredients. Reserving bread and fruit. Gently fold in bread to not break up too much. Then gently fold in fruit.,
Bake in buttered glass dish at 375 for 45 minutes. Serve hot. I promise your kitchen will smell like heaven.
2 cups frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs water
Cook and mash down 20 minutes until it thickens and sugars thicken.

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek!
My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones.
My food always has a story and always in sizes to share.
I now have begun a new adventure with my love Jason, and we created the Bellman and Concierge LLC and reopened the beautiful Oaks Victorian Inn. A childhood home I knew well growing up and now saving for many to enjoy as a Boutique Bed and Breakfast. Cooking for guests and sharing traditions. Come visit us at
