This delicious bread pudding is wonderful on its own. To kick it up a notch, add chocolate sauce or about 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips to the mixture just before baking. Warm fruit preserves would make a delicious sauce for this pudding as well.


  • 6 ounces torn French or Italian bread, about 4 to 5 cups
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups milk, divided
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional

Steps to Make It

  1. Butter a 11x7-inch baking dish. Heat oven to 350 F.

  2. Put torn bread into a medium bowl.

  3. In a bowl, whisk 3 cups of milk with the 4 eggs and vanilla; pour over the bread, stirring to blend.

  4. In a saucepan, combine peanut butter, the remaining 1 cup milk, and sugars. Heat the mixture over medium heat until peanut butter is melted and the mixture is smooth.

  5. Blend the peanut butter mixture into the bread mixture.

  6. Add mini chocolate chips, if desired.

  7. Pour into the prepared baking dish; bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until set.
