Bread Pudding with Syrup Sauce

Bread Pudding with Syrup Sauce

Bread pudding with syrup sauce was one of my favorite dessert when I was a kid. I remember my grandfather used to make it for me and I loved it. With its simple ingredients and incredible taste, it’s a dessert that will warm your heart and bring a smile to your face.

It’s an Old-Fashioned Recipe and by adding some extra spices it feels like something new, but at the same time cozy familiar. You make it by using dry leftover bread or you can even make it with the dry cinnamon buns. If you decide to do it with cinnamon buns, reduce 1/3 of the sugar from the recipe. You don’t want it to be to sweet.

Bread Pudding

This bread pudding with syrup sauce is a true delight that combines simplicity and incredible flavors. It’s amazing how a handful of everyday ingredients can come together to create such a soft and juicy treat that will leave you craving more.

Raisins soaked in rum

In this recipe, I like to use rum-soaked raisins for an extra burst of flavor. Typically, I prefer to soak them overnight, but if you’re pressed for time, a few hours will do the trick. However, if you’re not a fan of raisins, feel free to skip this step altogether. The choice is yours, and the bread pudding will still turn out deliciously delightful.

Syrup sauce

As for the syrup sauce, using sour cherry syrup adds a delightful tanginess. But don’t limit yourself to just one option. Feel free to explore various syrups like raspberry or strawberry, depending on your personal taste and what you have on hand. Each syrup will bring its own unique twist and complement the bread pudding beautifully.


For an exciting twist, try serving the bread pudding with a velvety whipped cream and a splash of rum. The creamy richness of the whipped cream, combined with a hint of rum, elevates the dessert to a luxurious level and complements the warm and comforting flavors of the pudding perfectly.

In the end, it’s all about experimenting and enjoying the process. So go ahead, have fun, and savor every mouthwatering bite of this delectable bread pudding with your preferred syrup sauce or a delightful dollop of whipped cream.
