I remember this bread pudding my Mama made when we were kids. There was something so comforting about it.

So if you’ve been in the same boat, I have to encourage you that that’s a lie.

Tips on making a scrumptious Sourdough Bread Pudding

There are 2 things that make this recipe wholesome-

Freshly baked Sourdough Bread Pudding With Condensed Milk

  1. Using a delicious loaf of Cranberry Pecan Sourdough. (More on that below!) 
  2. Substituting sugar with condensed milk. (Oh gosh, condensed milk does make everything better! It adds an extra punch to the flavors and makes this bread pudding moist.)Sourdough Bread Pudding With Condensed Milk

Why is sourdough better than regular bread?

  • Sourdough bread is a slowly fermented bread, thereby making it easier to digest.
  • It is also rich in antioxidants and nutrients thanks to the lactic acid in the bread.
  • Has a naturally longer shelf life.
  • The long fermentation process breaks down carbohydrates, making this bread a much healthier choice.loaf of cranberry pecan sourdough from the wildgrain box

Recommendation: Try the sourdough bread in the Wildgrain Box

Yes, this is an actual bread subscription box filled with homemade bread, pastries, and/or pastries that are shipped to your doorstep every month. 

The sourdough bread in the Wildgrain box arrives frozen, but gosh, once each item is baked/cooked, you will tell the flavor difference right away!

Each box is different. This month our box included all these goodies and free croissants! (The free croissants offer ends soon, so hurry!)

Bread pudding with condensed milk? Why, yes!

There’s just an elevation of flavor profiles when you use condensed milk, and I think it makes the bread pudding more spongey.

How long will this sourdough bread pudding last in the refrigerator?

To be honest, apart from the portion I set aside to freeze, we polished off every last bread pudding crumb the day after it was first baked!

But if you plan to refrigerate it, the bread pudding should keep well for 4-5 days.

Can you freeze bread pudding?

Yes, you can!

Ensure your bread pudding reaches room temperature before placing it in a glass, airtight container to freeze. (You can use plastic, but I prefer using glass.)

This will last a good 3 months, at least, if you follow the steps above.

Can I serve the Sourdough Bread Pudding as is or is there a Sauce for Bread Pudding?

We liked our bread pudding as is but you can make a sauce for bread pudding using condensed milk.

All you need is 1 can condensed milk, 2 tbsp milk and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. 

Mix this well and pour it over your serving of bread pudding!

How to make Sourdough Bread Pudding

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. 

While this is happening, prep your sourdough loaf in a rectangular glass tray (or square glass tray if you prefer taller, chunkier squares)

Some people like to cut the bread into cubes, I prefer the good ol’ fashioned way of getting in there and pulling pieces apart.

All nice and uneven.

Once this is done, pour the melted butter over the sourdough fragments and mix well.

Set this aside and work on the liquid base to bind everything together. 

Begin by beating the eggs with a hand mixer.4 eggs for the sourdough bread pudding

Add to this the milk, condensed milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon powder, and mix until combined.

Next, generously spoon the liquid mixture over the sourdough fragments in the tray, ensuring all the bread fragments are soaked in the mixture.
