Amish Style Cinnamon Chip Bread Pudding

This week’s poll on Janelle's “Comfy in the Kitchen” blog…asked “ What kind of recipes do you like the best?” The most popular answer was…..homemade! (with a close second to quick and easy) I also had some requests for economical (amen to that!). Here is the perfect recipe for ALL 3 of those requests! Best of all, you probably have most, if not all, of these ingredients on hand at all times!

This traditional Amish- style bread pudding is absolutely delicious… The smell of it baking will draw your family into the kitchen with anticipation! Even better is the warm vanilla milk that is poured on top after it is fresh out of the oven. You will never want to throw out day-old buns, rolls, or bread again, especially when you know what potential they can live out! Enjoy!

Ingredients for Bread Pudding: Half & Half (you may substitute milk), bread (I used rolls), vanilla, sugar, eggs, butter, ground nutmeg and cinnamon chips (if you do not have these, you may sprinkle on cinnamon)

Pour Half & Half into a pot on med-high heat , add butter and let simmer (do not boil)

In a separate bowl add eggs, nutmeg and sugar and mix well

Add your warm milk/butter mixture and mix well again

Rip bread into small cubes and place in a lightly "pammed" casserole dish and cover evenly with mixture

Sprinkle with cinnamon chips (if you don't have these, sprinkle with cinnamon)

Cover and bake in a 350 oven for 30 mins

Start your Vanilla Milk Topping: Heat butter in a saucepan, then whisk in flour to make a paste

Add milk, vanilla and sugar and let simmer until it thickens

After 30 mins is over, take off the foil and bake for another 15 mins until set and lightly browned on top

Remove from oven and pour warm vanilla milk over top

Serve fresh and pipping hot out of the oven! Those buns didn't know their potential until this very moment!! Enjoy!!!

Cinnamon Chip Bread Pudding w/ Warm Vanilla Milk Topping

Bread Pudding
2 cups Half&Half (you may substitute milk)
2 Tbsp butter
3 eggs
1/3 cup sugar

A handful of cinnamon chips to sprinkle over top (you may substitute cinnamon to sprinkle)

Pour Half & Half and butter in saucepan on med-high heat, let simmer (do not boil). Beat eggs, nutmeg, and vanilla in separate bowl.
Add warm milk and butter mixture and beat well.
Tear bread into small pieces and place in a prepared casserole dish.
Pour mixture over top and sprinkle with cinnamon chips.
Cover with foil and bake @350 for 30 mins.
Take foil off and bake an additional 15 mins.

Warm Vanilla Milk
1 cup milk
¼ cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1Tbsp flour
½ tsp salt

Melt butter, add flour to make a paste.
Whisk in the milk, sugar, vanilla and salt.
Let boil for 5 mins stirring constantly until it thickens into a syrup.
Pour over warm bread pudding and serve warm. Enjoy!

This recipe looks amazing--I'm so glad that Courtney decided to bring you along; you're a blessing to her and her readers!! Not that I've ever looked for them before, but I don't recall seeing cinnamon chips at the normal grocery stores.... are they at the local Giant Eagle in the baking isle or should I go to a specialty store?

Thank you so much for your kind words! I purchase my cinnamon chips at a local market called Beiler's- it is a year round farmers market..they package all spices,flour, baking chips, etc in plain plastic bags. If you can't find the chips, regular cinnamon would work perfectly! To the previous comment- LOL! if you drink a "diet coke" with the bread pudding it cancels out ALL the calories! haha! Bless you Ladies! ~Janelle

I'm doing Dairy with my culinary students at school right now and we've been talking about how to cook milk and not scorch, get scum, or boil over and I needed another recipe... I think this one will do well!!!

This looks amazing. If I show my husband this recipe he'll do one of three things, or maybe all three:

1. Faint
2. Ask me to make it yesterday
3. Pack up and move to Ohio.

Can this be baked, frozen, re-heated and then the vanilla milk added?

I have bread to make it right now, but I can't actually use it right now. I thought if I could make and freeze, I'd have a quick and easy dessert (or breakfast!) for the near future. Not that I could stand knowing it was in the freezer for too very long, because I really want to make it and eat it NOW!

Blogger Janelle Nehrenz said...

I have never frozen this particular recipe before, but my suggestion would be to allow it to cool, then wrap in plastic wrap, then in foil, then freeze it. I am a little concerned about it being "tough" or chewy after you warm it to put the sauce on it, but there is no harm in trying. It sure would be soo good for breakfast! MMMmm!

I couldn't find cinamon chips at Walmart...was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how butterscotch chips would taste in this?

November 11, 2010 at 5:32 PM  
Blogger Janelle Nehrenz said...

Julie, I would recommend sprinkling with cinnamon if you can't find the cinnamon will taste almost exactly the same. If you would like to try out butterscotch, I am all for new things! They will melt differently than the cinnamon they are creamier than the cinnamon chips (which melt chalky- the only way I can think to describe) Let me know how it works out my Friend!!! Love, Janelle

I made this last week with leftover cinnamon rasin bread I had made in my brand new bread maker! :) It was so good! It was great because I had all the ingredients at home already (minus the cinnamon chips, i just used cinnamon)! Those are my favorite kind of recipes

What a lovely twist on bread pudding. I wish we could get cinnamon chips here in England, but I'll just use cinnamon instead. Thank you for sharing another delicious recipe!

Yum, I finally found those cinnamon chips too and have begun using them in recipes. With those in the bread pudding, I know it would taste fantastic.
