Easy Bread Pudding Recipe


• 1 loaf (1 pound) Italian bread, slightly stale, cut into cubes
• 4 eggs, slightly beaten
• 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
• 1 cup milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
• Caramel ice cream topping
• Chopped pecans


1. Spray a slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Layer bread cubes in the bottom.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, sweetened condensed milk, milk, vanilla and salt, and mix well. Pour over bread cubes in slow cooker. With a spoon, spread egg mixture so all bread is thoroughly coated.

3. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

4. Pour ice cream topping over all, and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Cover and cook for another 15 minutes, or until caramel topping is hot.
