Blueberry Bread Pudding

Speaking of blueberries this week, my mom got this recipe from a magazine called Simple and Delicious and we loved this easy and tasty blueberry bread pudding. When you have a lot of blueberries around like we do in the summer, this is a good way to use them.

Here’s how to make this tasty treat!

Please note, several have asked about the 4 cups cream in the bread pudding. Yes, 4 cups whipping cream go in the bread pudding and then an additional 1 cup cream for the sauce (cream and white chips.)  Sorry for any confusion!

  1. Yum! I’ve only recently discovered Bread Pudding and look forward to trying this one. This recipe is confusing. You mention the baking chips and cream in the pudding AND the sauce, how much in each?

  2. Good Morning,
    I am confused on the Baking Chips. Recipe calls for 1 Bag of Chips. Step 3 calls for Baking chips and the Sauce calls for Baking Chips. Do you half the 1 bag for Step 3 and use the rest for the sauce.

    • I went back & updated so it would make more sense. One pkg. of white chips go inside the bread pudding, then the other package mixed with heavy cream is the sauce that goes over it. I’m not sure you need a whole package for the sauce though, so maybe use 1/2 with 1/2 the cream and add from there. It’s very rich with chips inside and the cream sauce, but really good!

  3. That looks amazing, thank your mom for such a scrumptious recipe. And, that sauce really puts the bread pudding over the top!

  4. Oh wow! I can’t wait to try this one, Rhoda! Going to the farmer’s market tomorrow to pick up some blueberries!

  5. Oh my gosh that sounds and looks really good! Thanks!

  6. Hi Rhoda….. this looks delish! But I do have to ask a question. Do you use 3 cups of cream in the bread pudding and 1 cup of cream for the sauce? I want to make this…so I want to get it right.

    • EDITED: Nancy, I’m going to go by the 4 cups listed for the bread pudding itself. Then use 1 cup more cream for the sauce. I’m sure that is right!

  7. I’ve made this recipe several times and I’m not much of a blueberry person, but this recipe is to die for and it is a major hit everywhere I take it. People always ask me for the recipe. It is a little expenisive but well worth it!

  8. I am still confused – does the recipe actually call for five cups of cream. You don’t mention how much to add to the actual bread pudding and then for the sauce – it calls for cream and chips. Is it 3 cups of cream in the bread puddding and another one in the sauce ? Or all 4 in the bread pudding then another one in the sauce?

    • Hi, Mary, yes, reading the recipe it has the bread pudding ingredients all together (4 cups cream) and the sauce recipe is at the bottom (chips and one cup cream). It’s separated, so it should make sense now.

  9. We love you, Rhoda, and your cute little family and your cute little recipes. Would love to meet you some day. You are a rock star!

    Sounds GREAT! Can’t wait to try it.

  11. I’m pretty clear that the recipe calls for 5 cups cream and not 4 like the ingredient list has above, but i’m still confused as to if it’s 1 bag of white chips that is split in half or two bags of white chips.

    i was going to go grocery shopping for the ingredients to this today, but since i’m not such a great cook i don’t feel like getting it wrong and wasting the food or the money by having it come out wrong.

    thanks for your help.
