Bread pudding is a rich and decadent dessert made with ingredients people often have on hand in their pantry. Leftover stale bread, typically brioche or challah, is soaked in a sweet custard base laced with raisins and drizzled with caramel sauce.

TIP: Bread pudding is best when the bread is toasted or stale. For best results, cut the brioche into pieces the day before you plan to make bread pudding, then let it sit uncovered on the counter until it’s time to make this recipe.
