Old Fashioned Molasses Bread Pudding


Add chopped dates or raisins to this old fashioned bread pudding recipe.


  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup light molasses
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups dry bread cubes
  • 1/3 cup chopped dates or raisins


In a medium saucepan scald the milk. Remove from heat and stir in molasses, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and butter; stir until well blended. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs slightly. Gradually pour hot milk over eggs, whisking or stirring briskly.

Place bread cubes and dates or raisins into a shallow buttered 2-quart baking dish, approximately 11x7x2-inches. Pour milk mixture over the bread and fruit and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir gently. Place baking dish in a larger pan and add about an inch of hot water to the outer pan. Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold with cream or dessert sauce.
Molasses bread pudding serves 6 to 8.
