Every culture seems to have their own version of bread pudding, even in the Caribbean. Spanish speaking islands call it pudín de pan. This sweet dessert is an excellent way to use up stale bread before it spoils.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1/4 pound stale bread
  • 2 cups hot milk
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Grease a 9x9 or 8x8 baking pan and set aside.
  3. Remove and discard crusts from the bread. Cut remaining bread into cubes.
  4. In a mixing bowl, soak bread cubes in the hot milk for 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Mix the soaked cubes well and then strain off excess milk.
  6. Dredge raisins in the flour and then fold into the bread and milk mix.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl. And mix well.
  8. Pour the bread mix into the greased baking pan.
  9. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  10. Top with your favorite dessert topping sauce.

Serves: This recipe makes about 8 servings, but can easily be doubled for a larger crowd.

Reminiscent of key west banana pudin at sunset, Member traceloveslace

For years, I've been trying to replicate the steaming hot banana bread sold in 1978 by a Bahamian man on a bike at sunset on the wharf. This is the closest I've come. (I added bananas instead of raisins.) The second time I made it, I added more bread and baked it in a glass loaf pan (add more milk to compensate, so it's not dry). For a bunch of basic ingredients, this is a super dessert. Thank you so much for posting it.
