Easy Bread Pudding Recipe [One-Pot Dessert]

It’s the holiday season again, and one of the best desserts to serve a family is bread pudding. The dessert is easy to make in big batches, and it’s quick to prepare! The best way to serve it is with a scoop of ice cream on top, where hot meets cold. You can also fill it with raisins, bananas, caramel, and more.

  • 3 extra-large whole eggs
  • 8 extra-large egg yolks
  • 2 cups of whole milk
