  • 6 cups cubed brioche bread (or other sweet white bread)
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 375 F / 190 C.
  • Cut the bread into 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide cubes. You can also rip the bread into similar sized pieces.
  • Combine eggnog, milk, egg, sugar and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Whisk to incorporate the ingredients evenly.
  • Add the bread pieces, raisins and dried cranberries to the liquid ingredients, and stir to combine. Leave the mixture to rest for at least 10 minutes, or overnight.
  • Pour the bread and eggnog mixture into a 9-inch square casserole dish, or an oven safe baking dish of a similar size. Bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.



  • Feel free to add any add-ins that you like, such as chocolate chips, dried fruit, pecans, walnuts, orange zest or cranberry sauce.
  • Serve bread pudding warm with whipped cream, ice cream or vanilla custard on top.
  • Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 6 months.
  • Make ahead option: Prepare the eggnog bread mixture the night before, keep it refrigerated overnight, and bake it when you're ready to serve the dish.
