Mexico may be best known for its more savory recipes like tacos, tostadas, birria, and more, but we also have many delicious sweet desserts that you won’t want to miss out on. Today, I am going to share a recipe for my favorite dessert, which is budin de pan. It is similar to bread pudding, and incorporates so many simple ingredients such as day-old bread (bolillos), evaporated milk, vanilla extract, and more.

This easy dessert is a common recipe around the holidays, but can be prepared any time of the year when you are craving a tasty, sweet Mexican recipe. Today I am going to share the traditional recipe and I hope you enjoy it!

What is Budin de Pan?

Budin de pan is a very sweet, moist dessert that is popular in Mexican cuisine. You can make it with leftover bread. It can be any type of bread, including white bread, but in Mexico it is most common to use the bread known as bolillos (french bread).

This recipe is very common throughout Mexico because of how simple it is to make and because of how delicious it is! The combination of ingredients creates an amazing flavor that you and your family will love. This recipe has some similarities to the popular capirotada recipe that you can find here, but it is made differently and has its own unique flavor as well.

How do you make Budin de Pan?

The steps to make this recipe are very simple, and basically consists of soaking the stale bread in the milk mixture for a few minutes and adding the rest of the ingredients a little bit at a time. Then it is placed in an oven-safe bread pan and baked until ready. The final result is a delcious bread pudding type dessert that you and your guests will be coming back for again and again.

The ingredients you will need to make this recipe are the following

  • 6 pieces of bread (bolillos that have been left out overnight work best)
  • Butter
  • Whole milk
  • Evaporated Milk (leche evaporada)
  • Sweetened condensed milk (leche condensada)
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Vanilla extract
  • Eggs
  • Raisins

To make this recipe, you will start by pre-heating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, take the bread and cut it into small pieces and put them in a large bowl. After that, you will add the whole milk and evaporated milk to the bowl with the bread and mix it with a large spoon, letting it soak for about 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes have passed, you will mash the bread and milk mixture with a potato masher to get a smooth, soft consistency and then set it aside.

The next step is to melt 3/4 stick of the butter in the microwave, setting aside the remaining 1/4 stick to prepare the baking dish.

Add the melted butter to the bread and milk combination and mix well. You will then mix in the eggs until everything is perfectly incorporated. Immediately after, add the cinnamon, vanilla (esencia de vainilla), sweetened condensed milk, and mix well before mixing in the raisins.

Prepare the bread pan by greasing it with the remaining butter, ensuring that the entire surface is covered with the butter. Add the mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and comes out clean.

Let the budin de pan cool for a short time at room temperature until you can remove it from the baking pan. Cut into slices and serve with hot chocolate for a delicious bread dessert.

It’s probably more than obvious that I bake and cook a lot and I often get asked what I do with all of the recipes that I test.

Most of the time, the goodies head to friends, family, neighbors, and even our chiropractor and Elle’s teachers.

Eric doesn’t have too much of a sweet tooth for things beyond cereal, chocolate chip cookies or chocolate cheesecake and Elle is pretty picky when it comes to desserts, so we’re often left with loads of sweets.

When I was testing this Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, I had the taste-testers all lined up because I knew I’d be making it several times and assumed that Eric and Elle wouldn’t be interested.

I was totally wrong.

They both devoured it thanks to the chocolate chips and crispy, buttery croissant top and it quickly became one of our new favorites!

I’m one of those people that has a Costco membership for about 10 things.

Paper towels, protein shakes, fresh flowers, eggs, vanilla, shrimp cocktail and my beloved dill pickle salad mixes are the staples.

Everything else is random like frozen chicken taquitos and almonds that taste like Thin Mint cookies.

However, during the holidays I started picking up their croissants when I was testing recipes and I kind of got hooked on them. I’m not considering them a staple quite yet, but they’re getting close.

First of all, they’re delicious. They’re rich, buttery, flaky and they’re massive so they’re great for feeding a crowd.

You can use them for chicken salad sandwiches or bacon egg and cheese sandwiches, but my absolute favorite way to use the croissants is in croissant bread pudding.

Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is always a good choice when you’re in need of a comforting dessert. The custard-based pudding is rich in texture and flavor – and the fact that it can be served warm always seems to add another layer of indulgence to each serving. There is no time of year that calls for comfort food more than the fall and winter holiday seasons, and that means that this Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Bread Pudding is a perfect option for dessert during that time of year.

The bread pudding is made with pumpkin puree and a generous amount of pumpkin spice. Pumpkin spice, or pumpkin pie spice, is a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger that is typically included in pumpkin pies and other pumpkin desserts. You have undoubtedly had it in a pumpkin spice latte, even if you weren’t familiar with the individual spices that went into the mix in the first place! The spices add a delicious warmth to the natural sweetness of pumpkin puree, which is further enhanced in this dessert with brown sugar and vanilla.

Bread puddings are usually soft and custardy, without much texture of their own. In this recipe, I add in a generous amount of toasted pecans. The flavor of the pecans works beautifully with the pumpkin spice elements, as well as adding a nice crunch to each serving of bread pudding. Toasted pecans will give you the best results in this recipe, as they will hold up to the custard without loosing their texture. Feel free to use pecans that are both roasted and salted if you like a little extra salty-sweetness in your desserts (I do!). I like to toss a few extra on top for garnish, to hint at the flavors that are inside the bread pudding.

This recipe makes a generous batch of bread pudding and you might not have a large enough gathering to serve it all at once. Fortunately, bread pudding keeps very well and the leftovers are just as delicious as the freshly baked dessert. If you do have leftovers, store them in the fridge. You can serve them cold or reheat individual portions in the microwave for a few minutes before serving.

Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Bread Pudding

Pumpkin Spice and Pecan Bread Pudding
2 3/4 cups milk (pref. whole)
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree (1-15 oz can)
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
9-10 cups cubed bread (pref. white bread or brioche)
1 cup coarsely chopped, toasted pecans
topping: 2 tbsp sugar + 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice, for topping

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice until very smooth.
Place cubed bread in a large bowl, and pour pumpkin mixture over the top. Use a spatula to gently fold the bread cubes until they are well coated. Allow bread mixture to stand for 20 minutes to soak up the custard mixture.
Pour bread custard mixture into prepared pan and spread it into an even layer. Combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl and sprinkle over the top of the bread pudding.
Bake for 40 minutes, until the pudding springs back when lightly pressed and a sharp knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Leftovers should be cooled completely and stored in the refrigerator.

Serves 10-12
