Slow Cooker Bread Pudding

  • Cooking Time:

    4.5 hours
  • Servings:



1 loaf STALE whole-wheat mul­ti-grain bread, cut into large cubes (about 6 cups)
1 quart (4 c.) half-and-half
4 large eggs
3/4 c. sug­ar
2 T. whiskey or bour­bon
2 tsp. pure vanil­la extract
1/2 tsp. fine salt
Pinch fresh­ly grat­ed nut­meg
12 oz. dried pears or a com­bi­na­tion of pears and apri­cots, chopped
1/4 c. sug­ar and 1/4 tea­spoon ground cin­na­mon, mixed
1 1/2 c. wal­nuts or pecans, toast­ed
Whipped cream, if desired

I didn’t dis­cov­er the good­ness that is in Bread Pud­ding until I was an adult. Boy, was I deprived as a kid! Since that first taste, I’ve def­i­nite­ly made up for lost time — I’ve had my share of bread pud­ding! When I’m crav­ing the yum­my taste of what is now one of my favorite desserts, I make this Slow Cook­er Bread Pud­ding at home. Enjoy!

  1. Grease a slow cook­er with but­ter or non­stick spray.
  2. Whisk the half-and-half, eggs, sug­ar, whiskey, vanil­la, salt and nut­meg togeth­er in a large bowl. (This is the cus­tard)
  3. Toss bread cubes and dried fruit togeth­er and place into a slow cook­er.
  4. Pour cus­tard over top and press down light­ly until all bread is moist and cov­ered with the cus­tard.
  5. Cov­er and Crock on LOW until pud­ding puffs and is just set, about 3 1/2 hours.
  6. Remove crock insert from the slow cook­er and cool on a rack, about 20 min­utes.
  7. Spoon pud­ding into large cups or bowls and sprin­kle each serv­ing with cin­na­mon sug­ar and toast­ed nuts.
  8. Top with whipped cream, yogurt, or ice cream. (as desired)

Won­der­ing if I could sub­stitue raisins for the pears and apri­cots?

Have you tried fat-free half n’ half.


What size crock pot did YOU use fot this recipe? I don’t want to mix it all up only to find that it does­nt fill my pot enough. That already hap­pened to me once with awful results.


You say to put insert in
crock pot. What’s an insert?
Cin­na­mon rolls is one exam­ple.
