Cinnamon-Blueberry Bread Pudding

by Erin

Back in the fall, Katie made the most yummy two-serving bread pudding, which we devoured while watching a movie (I cannot for the life of me remember which though). When I asked her for the recipe, she said it was from Taste of Home and that she used the pumpkin cinnamon swirl bread which was in stock at the grocery stores at the time. Unfortunately I never got around to scooping up a loaf of that bread for myself, but did finally get around to making this bread pudding. Of course, once I started to make it I realized there were no raisins to be found in the kitchen. Good thing there are several varieties of dried fruit in my pantry! Blueberries seemed like a fair trade and a good match for some cinnamony-ness.

They were quick to make too. I paused the yoga DVD I was doing in my living room to pour the milk mixture over the bread, let it soak for 15 minutes while I did more bendy things, paused again to pop in the oven, and by the time my workout was over I had hot steamy bread pudding begging to be scarfed down – complete with a burned tongue. By the way, I have a serious problem waiting for things to cool down enough to eat; which is where the ice cream comes in handy ;-)

Now what to do with the remaining loaf minus two slices? Any suggestions?

One year ago: Asiago Bagels (with Chipotle Pepper or Garlic & Chive Cream Cheese)


Serves 2


1 cup cubed cinnamon-swirl or cinnamon-raisin bread (approximately two slices)

1 egg

2/3 cup 2% milk

3 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp butter, melted

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Dash salt

1/3 cup dried blueberries (or favorite dried fruit)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees*. Lightly grease two 7-oz. ramekins and distribute bread cubes between them.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until blended. Stir in dried blueberries. Pour over bread; let stand for 15 minutes or until bread is softened.
  3. Bake at 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm – with ice cream!

*You could also bake these in a toaster oven since they are small enough to fit.

I’ve actually never had bread putting, but cinnamon blueberry sounds like a great way to start!

I love recipes for two. That give you just enough but then the next day you can have something else. I don’t like to bog down my sweet intake with the same thing over and over again. This looks so good. I love the cinnamon and blueberry combo.

I’ve never been a fan of bread pudding because of the raisins, but substituting blueberries? That, I think I could do! My husband love bread pudding and only gets to eat it if its on a restaurant menu. Maybe I’ll surprise him with this on Valentine’s Day!

I just love this! My brother made a sticky date bread pudding a few years for Christmas, since then I can’t seem to get enough bread pudding but haven’t had it in awhile. This has got me in the mood for some. I am like you, I can’t wait for things to cool down either. Love your idea of using ice cream! Can’t wait to try!
