Crock Pot Bread Pudding

Updated on February 1, 2016

Bread Pudding Crock Pot Recipe

A crock pot bread pudding is the best option when you are cooking for a family or you just want to make multiple meals ahead of time. It is easy to make a large batch in a crock pot (slow cooker). While I love my Mom's recipe that you cook on the stove top and in the oven, it is intended more for a single serving.

One of my favorite aspects of a slow cooker bread pudding recipe is that you don't need to scald the milk. Standing in one spot and just stirring kind of drives me nuts. With a bigger serving it would just take even longer. So when I want to get my breakfast meals prepared ahead of time, for the mornings that I have to go to work, I prefer to use my crock pot.

When it is done cooking I can leave some serving dishes in the fridge and freeze some more for later. It is also perfect for a nice family breakfast. It is something you can do even on a busy morning. Since you can start it the night before and let it cook overnight (if your crock pot has a timer).

If you want to make it into a dessert you can serve it with ice cream or top it with some caramel sauce.

This is the perfect crock pot to cook in. It has a timer on it. So if you can't be there while it is cooking it will automatically switch to warming mode when the cooking time is up.

      This looks wonderful, and I'll try it for both breakfast and dessert! I'll use gluten-free bread for my daughter with celiac. I just know everyone will love it! Thank you!
