Caramel Bread Pudding Recipe with Chocolate Fudge Sauce

This delicious dessert is best made with day-old bread, rather than fresh bread. You can use older bread than that if you want. Stale bread is the reason bread puddings were invented, after all! The ingredients are really delicious and the combination of vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and more give the caramel bread pudding a really great taste. The caramel flavor comes from the brown sugar and milk. Traditionally caramel is made with butter, sugar, and milk.

You can either make this dessert in one big pan or you can use individual dessert ramekins. If you use a big pan, it might have a slightly longer cooking time but that depends on your oven as well as other things. Maybe you have tried a coconut bread pudding with caramel sauce recipe before, or a caramel apple bread pudding or a caramel bread pudding with rum. If you want to add another flavor to this, such as coconut or rum, simply mix it into the egg mixture before pouring it over the bread.

The chocolate fudge sauce is made with chocolate fudge flavor instant pudding and milk. This is such a simple way to make a dessert and it tastes really nice. Did you know you can also make gelatin drinks using gelatin or pudding mixes? Add more milk for a thinner sauce or leave some out for a thicker one. The sauce does not need to be frothy like pudding or mousse, so just beat the pudding mix into the milk until it is incorporated.
