One of the great things about being a food blogger is the people you meet along your journey.  I have made fast friends with Lorie Hutson from The Spokesman Review , our local paper and she has graciously added my recipes in the Food section many a time.

I recently had coffee with her to “catch up” and in passing she asked if I had any kind of easy brunch dish that would be perfect for Easter Sunday.  I had just made a Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche, but figured I’d whip something else up that was more breakfast-y.  Is that a word?  Anyway, this recipe comes together quick and can be baked ahead and reheated if necessary.

You can kick this bread pudding up a notch by tossing in chunks of diced apples, chocolate chips, raisins or dried cranberries…the possibilities are endless!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  Check out all of the other great recipes that were in the recent food article here:  Simplicity of Brunch .


  • Texas Toast – is a thick sliced white bread. Experiment with other types of cubed bread like croissants, brioche, or sourdough for similar delicious results.
  • Whole Milk – will make the custard for the bread rich and luscious, but if you’d prefer you can use any type of milk, even nut or seed milks.
  • Applesauce – really helps make the custard perfumed and delicious.

  1. Its in the oven right now. The applesauce mixture tasted awesome before it went into the oven. I can’t wait. It also is filling the house with incredible smells.

  2. Hi Heather, I’ve been coordinating tailgates/post game meals for my son’s soccer team and found this recipe when I had a couple of dozen sandwich rolls leftover. I substituted the rolls for the texas toast and cooked this in a crockpot to keep warm for a post game dessert treat. the boys and parents loved it! thanks so much for the recipe!

    I really like bread pudding. Would love to try this..

  4. Yum, Heather. I would love it you fed this to me for breakfast!

  5. Lisa from Iroquois says:

    Utterly yummy. Used up the end of last years apple sauce for this and now I’ll have to make extra this year just for this recipe.

  6. Texas toast? the garlic stuff? in a dessert? doesn’t sound good unless you just mean the bread they make texas toast out of

    1. Hi there, I live in England. I have no idea what Texas Toast is. Please can you clarify? Also, if I want to use apples, instead of apple sauce? I assume I just cook about the amount I think will make two cups?
      It looks great. Thanks.

      1. FarmgirlGourmet Author says:

        it’s a really thick cut white bread, like french toast bread. You could also use a challah if that’s more easily accessible. Hope that helps. Yes to the applesauce question as well.
