White Chocolate Bread Pudding Recipe

bread pudding and white chocolate sauce
Yvonne Ruperti

This buttery, rich white chocolate bread pudding is doused in a luscious white chocolate sauce.


  • Using a good quality white chocolate really puts this bread pudding over the top. I use Ghiradelli or Callebaut chocolate.
  • Leftover bread pudding can be reheated in microwave.

For the Bread Pudding:

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (for greasing pan)

  • 9 ounces bread (croissant or French bread), cut into 1-inch cubes

  1. For the Bread Pudding: Grease 8-inch square pan with butter; set aside. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spread bread cubes onto rimmed baking sheet and bake until edges of bread feels dry, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let pan cool on wire rack.

  4. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake until just set, about 25 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving, about 15 minutes.

  5. For the Sauce: In small saucepan over medium heat, heat cream to just simmering. Remove from heat and whisk in chocolate until melted and smooth. Serve immediately.
