Caramel Bread Pudding is a steamed pudding made using custard powder, milk, bread and sugar. It's a perfect & super easy dessert for any occasion. You can definitely make the custard using the traditional way with milk, egg and sugar but as it's a eggless recipe I have used instant custard powder instead. Though it’s a simple recipe but the most important step is the caramel, it need to be done correctly to get the desired result!

I have never tried eggless bread pudding earlier, so thought to make it on my Anniversary. As It requires simple ingredients which is always available in my kitchen pantry.

In my recipe I have used whole wheat bread instead of white bread to keep it little healthy. I have used a store brought custard powder you can add any flavours according to your choice. It's really a delicious treat for your loved once...... it's worth a try!!!!

Let's check out the Ingredients & recipe to make this yummy Caramel Bread Pudding. If you like this dessert recipe then please comment below, I would love to read your thoughts!!!

      I believe it is Bird’s Custard powder. It can be bought at larger grocery stores in the USA, in the international foods section. Also, May be available on Amazon.
