Introduction: 5 Minute Bread Pudding for One

When you don't know what to do with those pesky end heels of your bread loaf - turn them into fluffy, custardy gold with this super quick and simple dessert! 

Step 1: Tools / Ingredients

These ingredients are more suggestions, you can easily make substitutions to almost everything but the bread and eggs. 

You'll need: 
- a microwaveable coffee cup or bowl
- bread (stale ok!)
- 1 egg
- 1-3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons of yogurt or milk
- 1-2 tablespoons of butter / margarine

Optional ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons applesauce 
- 1 tsp vanilla 
- dash of cinnamin

Step 2: Tear It Up!

Now tear up your inedible bread. I happened to have some "english muffin bread" from Trader Joe's, I think it really enhances the taste and texture since it's already kind of dense and spongy *Mmmmmmmm*

Put the pieces into the cup and set aside. 

Step 3: Mix & Pour

Whisk together all remaining ingredients. If your butter is not soft enough yet, it's ok to melt it. 

Pour the mixture on top of the bread. If needed, use a fork to help it along down into the crevices so it makes its way throughout the bread. 

Step 4: Microwave, Set and Serve

Pop in the microwave for about 2 minutes. When it's done, let it cool for as long as you can stand it. Letting it set for a few minutes allows the flavor and texture to set in. 

Once cooled to your liking, dig in and enjoy!

That is a great bread pudding, i have made it over 5 times in 2 days

Thanks for a simple, delicious recipe. I had a yen for bread pudding one evening but didn't want to bake something large for 45 minutes. It's so easy to customize as well. I happened to have some currants soaking in water for something else and it worked fine. Any dried fruit can work, but I noticed the fruits are plump and juicy if they can soak for a bit.

I used two slices of cinnamon raisin bread. And then drizzled pancake syrup over the baked custard.

Sometimes I have this for breakfast. And add bacon bits to it also.

So easy to make! Great for rushed mornings when I need something sweet!

Looks kinda like the "MRE cobbler" we would make when deployed:

1 Packet peaches (canned peaches in syrup, basically), mix in 4 packets of sugar, and 2 packets of coffee creamer, a dash of extra water, crumble two crackers and stir into the mix, then heat with an MRE heater for 20 minutes.

Have you tried the recipe with any other canned/jarred fruits?

I had my first bread pudding about a year ago and while it was good it was not something I really liked. This however is amazing. I now make a special loaf of bread just for this.

This. Looks. Divine. I tried bread pudding in Scotland a few weeks ago, and I LOVED it. My family didn't like it very much though, so this is perfect. Thanks :)

Hi. Bread and butter pudding and bread pudding are two different things. Bread pudding is dense pudding/cake, full of dried fruit, spice, egg milk and bread. The difference is that the bread is really soaked until a pulp. It sounds awful from this, but it's delicious poor people's food. My great grandmother used to make a huge one every Monday with stale bread from the baker (free). I still make it, but you can't get free good bread any more. Boo.

I mixed everything in a coffee cup and added the bread afterwards, for a one-pot/cup recipe....no mess, delicious, fast and soo easy!

I don't have raisins, I have cranberries though. Would that work?
