Simple Blueberry Bread Pudding

Last Updated on June 9, 2019 by hungryoungwoman

Are you bored of the usual bread pudding recipes on Google? The dessert is something I prepare when the bread at home is going stale. But this time, I decided to add a twist!

How about adding blueberries to the mix? Blueberries have made an appearance in pies, cheesecakes, muffins, cakes or turned into coulis, compotes, and jams. I was a bit skeptical at first but decided to give it a try.

I was sent a few fresh fruit packs from Del Monte and after the usual blueberries gracing my chocolate pancakes, I knew I NEEDED to make something different. Enter, this delicious Blueberry Bread Pudding that gives a nice combination of tangy, fruity, and sweet.

I, for one, am usually on the search for recipes during Ramadan. After fasting, sweet cravings are at bay and this one’s a great option if you don’t want something that will result in sugar overload.
