A decadent breakfast treat for a special morning or a sweet dessert combines French bread with eggs, sweetened condensed milk, and plenty of pecans for a baked bread pudding they’ll love.

Chef's Notes

This recipe may be served as a dessert or a breakfast entree. To serve for dessert, top with ice cream, caramel syrup or whipped cream. For breakfast, serve warm drizzled with pancake syrup.


  1. Easy to make and results are VERY good! Made twice for Thanksgiving
  2. I will definitely make it again. Even better the second day. I used maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Served with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream
  3. I made this for some men at church. It looked as though they licked the pan clean. I plan on making this quite often.
