Grape Bread Pudding #BreadBakers

Grape Bread Pudding

Welcome to this month’s Bread Bakers Challenge! For October we going gaga over grapes! ūüėČ


Make any kind of bread with grapes! They can be roasted, dried (as in raisins) candied, jellied, etc. as long as they are used in the bread or its filling or topping. Heck, you can use wine made from grapes in the dough or filling or topping, if that floats your boat! Don’t forget a little for the baker as well.¬†

Thank you Stacy from Food Lust People Love for hosting this grape-tastic event!

I love fruited bread pudding. You can eat it for breakfast or dessert! Even both if you’re like me. I gave this dish some extra grape kick with a bit of 100% grape juice.
Non-fat Greek yogurt adds creaminess to the custard and saves us a few calories. That’s to say if anyone is really counting!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 6 cups hearty bread broken into 1½-inch pieces (I used English Toasting)
  • 2 cups grapes, halved
  • ½ cup vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, plus extra for greasing pan
  • ½ cup grape juice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Add yogurt, half and half, juice, butter and cloves in a medium-sized saucepan. Heat just until hot whisking constantly do not boil.
  2. Remove from heat to cool slightly.
  3. Add a bit of the cooled custard base to the eggs to temper it. Slowly whisk the egg mixture back into the custard base.
  4. Place bread pieces and grapes into a large bowl and stir in custard mixture.
  5. Bake in buttered 8x8-inch pan at 350 for approximately 40 minutes until custard has set and bread pudding has browned.
  6. Serve warm with a dollop of yogurt or whipped cream or even cold!

    Baked bread pudding is one of my husband’s favorite desserts, Cindy! He’d love your version studded with sweet grapes. So glad you could bake with us this month!

    Now I am thinking I should have named the event Gaga over Grapes. Way more fun!

    I’m so used to putting raisins in bread pudding that I’ve never thought of grapes. It looks wonderful. Brilliant idea.

    I have clearly been underusing grapes. Now I will have to think of all the ways I’d use raisins and sub grapes.

  18. I just love baking with grapes. Great that you made this lighter too because bread pudding can be so heavy.
