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)

Happy Crocking!

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.
