Gluten-Free Bread Pudding

On Sunday I was out and about, walking the boys in their stroller…in the dumping rain…running errands and I stopped by a neighbor’s house to drop off some goodies. Natalie asked me if I had tried a gluten-free bread line from Franz.


I hadn’t and she gave me two loaves to try, one of each flavor. The bread does have eggs in it, but I don’t mind eggs here and there. Funny is Walker (The Toddler), got into the sack of bread and was happily munching on it plain! He thought the Mountain White bread plain was tasty. Which boded well for my idea, since the bread has eggs in it, I would have an old-fashioned bread pudding. Just with some of my twists in it. The light flavor of the coconut oil and milk gives a deeper flavor than butter and dairy milk.

When I indulge in eggs, I like enjoying them. This was very much enjoyed!


Gluten-Free Bread Pudding



Preheat oven to 350°. Tear bread into small pieces, add to a 8×8″ glass baking dish, set on a rimmed baking sheet. The bread should nearly fill the pan. Drizzle the melted oil on top and gently stir to coat bread. Add in raisins, toss to coat.

Whisk the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla till smooth, pour over the bread, push bread down till bread is covered. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Bake for 45 minutes, until top is golden. Let cool on counter, then chill.



The Franz bread is a small loaf, with each slice about half the normal size. I used most of a loaf up in the recipe (15 slices in a loaf).

While delicious warm, the pudding shines served cold with a bit of pure maple syrup drizzled over. Makes a fantastic breakfast! Or dessert 😉 Seriously, cold is the way to eat this bread pudding!

  1. We really like the Franz bread. It is inexpensive (relative to other gf brands), easily available (even from our podunk grocery store) and really tasty. It stores easily in the freezer (little man doesn’t eat it quickly enough to store on the counter). The texture is spot on. We buy the 7 Grains variety.

    1. I still need to try that loaf! It is in my freezer 🙂 My neighbor finds hers at the outlet, which I am all for that!!

  2. I adore bread pudding and have had trouble veganising it. I was going to ask you if the GF bread was good since I haven’t found a brand that doesn’t taste like cardboard. But alas, this one has eggs.

    1. It was good bread – it felt and tasted like regular bread – but I’d bet the eggs are why it isn’t like a loaf of Styrofoam 😉
