Serious Eats: Recipes
Classic Challah Bread Pudding
Whether you choose to make it because you've got something you need to use up (eggs, milk, stale bread), or just because you love it, bread pudding delivers a whole lot of dessert satisfaction with just a small amount of effort.
Note: If all you have is fresh bread, you can dry it by cutting it into rough 1-inch pieces, spreading them on a couple of rimmed baking sheets, and baking in a 275°F oven until dry, about 20 minutes.
