Eggnog Bread Pudding -classic bread pudding gets a festive Christmas twist with eggnogg, perfect easy recipe for the holiday season.
I love bread pudding and first had a traditional bread pudding ages ago when I was in my early twenties and living in England for school. It is a classic English dessert. It’s so warm and comforting and truly easy to make. It was often made to use up stale bread. This eggnog version is perfect for the holiday season.
To make this old classic a little extra special for Christmas I partnered with President’s Choice and made it with their new President’s Choice Brioche Bread and President’s Choice Eggnog. It was so good!
The rich buttery flavour of the brioche bread made the pudding extra special. And the best part of this recipe is that using eggnog as one of the main ingredients cut down on the ingredients and made this recipe super easy, but also so, so delicious.
If you’re a fan of eggnog, I think you’ll love this eggnog bread pudding recipe. The eggnog flavour adds so much to the dessert.
What To Serve It With
I served the Eggnog Bread Pudding with whipped cream as a holiday dessert. To make it mix heavy cream with vanilla extract, and sugar, you could even add a splash of rum to make it more festive. It was warm, but not piping hot. You can serve it hot, warm, or cold. It would be really delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream also, or a classic English custard sauce, or even eggnog custard, vanilla sauce, rum sauce, or caramel sauce. You could also dust it with a little powdered sugar before serving.
To make this Eggnog Bread Pudding even more special, you could add in some raisins, or pecans, or both to up the holiday flavors. We’ve made ours with brioche bread, but you can also try different types of bread like challah bread, egg bread, French bread, or even white bread.
I love this easy Egg nog Bread Pudding. It’s easy enough for any day you’d like to add a little holiday cheer to with simple grocery store ingredients, but special enough to be welcome at any party or special get together this Christmas. This is a great way to use up any leftover eggnog too.
