What is a Bread Pudding?
Bread pudding is a dish that is made of bread soaked in milk, eggs, and sugar. It can be eaten as a dessert or as an accompaniment to coffee or tea.
The Story of the Bread Pudding
Bread pudding is a dish that has been around for centuries. The history of bread pudding can be traced back to the Middle Ages when it was served as a bread soup.
The first known recipe for bread pudding was published in 1769 by a cook named Hannah Glasse in her book called “The Art of Cookery”. This recipe is different from what we know today because it did not have eggs and used raisins instead of currants.
This dish is so versatile that it can be served as dessert, breakfast, or even dinner. Bread pudding can be made with any kind of bread and any kind of fruit or nuts.

Remove soaked bread from the rum (reserving rum) and add to the bread cubes. Toss well.
Transfer the bread mixture to the prepared pan, gently pressing down on the bread to help it absorb the custard.
Cover the pan with sprayed foil.
Pour the water into an instant pot.
Using a sling, carefully lower the pan into the instant pot (it will need to sit on the rack).

Remove the pan from the heat.
Pour the sauce over the cooked bread pudding.
