Southern Style Blueberry Bread Pudding Recipe

I will admit it, I love bread pudding.  I especially love Southern Style Bread Pudding.  One thing I don’t like in my bread pudding is RAISINS!!!  I have found that adding fresh blueberries really kicks it up without that raisin flavor.  Since this recipe for Southern Style Blueberry Bread Pudding isn’t quite as sweet as most, you could actually serve it for breakfast as Blueberry Baked French Toast!  Essentially, all of the ingredients are the same.

Southern Style Blueberry Bread Pudding

Southern Style Blueberry Bread Pudding


  • 8 cup cubed bread
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 7 eggs whipped
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 2 cups half and half


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Coat mini loaf pan or 9X13 casserole dish with nonstick spray and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl whip together the melted butter, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, eggs, and half and half.
  4. Once they are well blended add the cubed bread and blueberries.
  5. Mix together gently, but make sure all bread is fully coated.
  6. Let sit for 5-10 minutes while the bread soaks up most the liquid.
  7. Once it has set, spoon the mixture into prepared pan.
  8. Bake at 350, the mini loaf pan only needs 30-35 mins to bake, while the casserole dish will take 45-50 minutes.

Want to serve this for breakfast?  You can also prepare the bread/egg mixture the night before for a quick and easy breakfast idea.  Just pop it into the oven after it has soaked overnight.  You might need to adjust cooking time since it will be cold from sitting in the refrigerator overnight.   I personally would add about 5 additional minutes.

What do you think about Southern Style Blueberry Bread Pudding?  Pretty easy to make, and quite satisfying too.  You could also substitute any other berries in this recipe.  Even apples would make a great addition.  However, if you are going to use apples, I find it best to sautee them for about 5-10 minutes in a pan on the stovetop before using them.  This helps them release any additional liquid that may make your bread pudding or baked french toast too loose.
