Hot Cross Bun Bread Pudding

hotcrossbreadpuddingI had leftover Hot Cross buns last year and ended up making bread pudding with some of them. It was a really big hits with my friends. Since I just posted the recipe for the Hot Cross Buns, I thought I’d share this recipe again. I made a big batch, but the recipe could be cut in half. Thinking I might make Hot Cross Buns- just so I can make this dessert again!!


Hot Cross Buns Bread Pudding


12 c. torn up hot cross buns- I used 8 buns

2 c. half and half

1 c. milk – I used almond milk

1 c. sugar- or less if you are using frosted buns

5 eggs

1 T. vanilla

1 T. cinnamon


1 c. powdered sugar

4 t. milk

In large mixing bowl place the torn up buns. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over the buns. Stir to moisten evenly. Spoon mixture into a buttered 9×13-inch pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until bread pudding is set and a little golden on top. While the bread pudding is baking combine powdered sugar with milk to make a frosting thin enough to drizzle. Let bread pudding cool 10 minutes and drizzle with frosting.  Serves 8-10.
