The recipe has since changed over time to include different combinations of flavors including dark rum or bourbon which gives the dessert its signature flavor today. Due to the richness of this type of pudding, it is usually served in small portions alongside other dishes during holiday meals or special occasions such as weddings or birthdays. Creole Bread Pudding has become so popular that there are now many variations on how to make it depending on personal preference, such as adding berries or using different types of bread like brioche instead of French bread. Regardless of which variation one chooses to make, it is sure to delight any sweet tooth!

Yield: 1 servings



  1. 1 cup Raisins
  2. 2 Egg yolks
  3. 5 Eggs
  4. 3 cups Brown sugar, packed
  5. 2 tsp Cinnamon
  6. 1 1/2 tbsp Cornstarch
  7. 9 tbsp Granulated sugar
  8. 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  9. 5 tsp Vanilla extract
  10. 1 Loaf of French Bread
  11. 4 cups Milk
  12. 1/4 cup Rum
  13. 2 tbsp Water


Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9 X 13-inch baking pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray.

Cut the French bread into cubes and spread them evenly in the greased baking pan. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, milk, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, and nutmeg until fully combined. Stir in vanilla extract and raisins and mix until blended.

Pour the mixture over the bread cubes and gently stir with a large spoon or spatula to ensure that all the bread cubes are coated. Let stand for 15 minutes so that the bread can absorb some of the liquid mixture.

Once 15 minutes have passed, place into the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with rum sauce (see instructions below).

To make rum sauce:  In a small saucepan on medium heat add rum and water. Simmer for about 5 minutes to allow flavors to combine then add granulated sugar and continue stirring until sugar has dissolved completely. Bring mixture to a slow boil then reduce heat to low and let simmer for an additional 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally until desired thickness is reached (make sure not to let it thicken too much). Serve warm over Creole Bread Pudding. Enjoy!
