This is an old-fashioned biscuit pudding with vanilla, eggs, and milk. It is a moist and flavorful vanilla bread pudding but made with leftover biscuits instead of bread. 

Some of you will have fond childhood memories of this pudding, but even if you have never heard of it, you have to appreciate our grandparents' or great-grandparents' creative use of leftover biscuits. And the pudding is delicious!

Serve this pudding with maple syrup, a dessert sauce, or whipped cream. Feel free to add about 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and some raisins to this tasty biscuit pudding.

This is a great way to use leftover biscuits!


  • 4 leftover biscuits (torn into pieces)
  • 2 cups milk (divided)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
