Hola Familia! It has been a minute since I posted a recipe, and to be honest, I thought about stopping sharing my recipes altogether. Still, the reality is that I love sharing my passion and appreciation for food with those who follow me, and most of all, I love cooking. In fact, I was not going to share this recipe at all, but I posted a teaser picture on Instagram a few weeks ago, and the positive feedback I received made me change my mind. 😊
But why stopping now?
Well, I started a new business! https://abasketofjo.com, and that takes a lot of work. Fortunately, I have a great family, and they’ll be helping as the business take off, which means I will be able to continue doing what I love–cooking!
On that note, let’s get to the basics: What is bread pudding?
Bread pudding is a bread-based dessert made with stale bread, milk or cream, eggs, spices, and butter. It is popular in many countries, and recipes may vary. In the Dominican Republic, we make a simple pudding with stale bread, eggs, milk, raisins, and spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.
For this recipe, I added cardamon which is not very common in Dominican cuisine. Cardamom is a spice widely used in Indian cooking; it has a strong but sweet aroma, and it goes well with our bread pudding recipe.
Now let’s get to cooking!
Here is the recipe:
Cardamom Bread Pudding
- 3 Cups day-old bread cut into small cubes Brioche or any stale bread
- 3 Large Eggs
- 1 Can Evaporated Milk
- 1 Can Condensed Milk
- 1 Tsp Vanilla

- Preheat the oven to 350°
- In a large bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk, condensed milk, eggs, cardamom, and vanilla.
- Add the cubed bread and raisins to the egg mixture and coat it evenly. Let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Grease the bottom of a 20X20X5.
- Add the bread mixture to the greased pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until pudding is completely set. Serve with syrup for breakfast or with vanilla ice cream if eating as a dessert.
