Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • nonstick cooking spray


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 loaf challah bread, cut in 1-inch cubes (about 8 cups)


  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice or cider
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Step 1

    Line the Ninja Multi-Purpose Pan (or 8-inch round baking pan) with a nonstick silicone baking mat or parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, add milk, cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla, lemon zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Whisk until fully combined. Then add the challah pieces and stir until evenly coated. Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Place the frozen berries and apple juice in the pot and stir until combined.

  • Step 4

    Place the challah mixture in the prepared pan and press into an even layer. Bread should be fully saturated with liquid. If more liquid is needed, pour 1/4 cup more cream over bread. Place pan on the bottom layer of the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower position, then place the rack in the pot over the berries.

  • Step 5

    Close the lid and move slider to STEAMCRISP. Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 325°F, and set time to 15 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (PrE will display for approx. 15 minutes as the unit steams, then the timer will start counting down).

  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, carefully remove the rack with the pan and allow bread pudding to cool for 15 minutes.

  • Step 7

    To finish the berry sauce, move the slider to AIR FRY/STOVETOP, select SEAR/SAUTE, and set temperature to 3. Stir the sugar and lemon juice into the berry mixture and bring to simmer. In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch and water until corn starch is fully dissolved. Slowly whisk the corn starch mixture into the simmering berry mixture, then turn off heat and transfer mixture to a serving bowl. Let cool slightly before serving with bread pudding.
