Chai Latte Bread Pudding

chai latte bread pudding

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a loaf of Nature’s Pride Bread. I’ve never had Nature’s Pride Bread before so I was excited to give it a try. My husband, Derrick, and I thought of different recipes to make with this bread…from paninis, French toast to bread puddings. Chai Lattes are one of my favorite coffee shop indulgences so when Derrick suggested Chai Latte Bread Pudding…I knew we had to make it. I used the Healthy Multi-Grain bread, but I think the Country White bread would be delicious for this recipe too. The Multi-Grain bread makes the bread pudding a bit denser and the sliced almonds add some crunch to the soft pudding.  The chai concentrate gives the bread pudding an exotic twist with notes of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. I also used whole milk instead of heavy cream to keep it a bit lighter. Feel free to substitute heavy cream though for a richer dessert.

Let mixture sit for 10 mins, fill ramekins, place in water bath & bake.


spliting and scaping a vanilla bean

How to split & scrape a vanilla bean: cut a slit down the center then open the pod. Use a knife to scrape the sides to remove the beans. You can use the remaining pod to infuse in other recipes (ice cream, sugar, teas, etc)

Chai Latte Bread Pudding

Prep:  15 mins. Cook:  30 mins.


6 slices of Nature’s Pride Bread of your choice, left out uncovered over night then cubed into 1 inch cubes

1 C Chai Latte Concentrate

1 C Whole Milk (or heavy cream)

1 Vanilla Bean, split in half and scraped

1 tsp Cinnamon

 ½ C Sugar

4 Eggs, beaten

½ C Unsalted Dry Toasted Sliced Almonds


  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • Set cubed bread into a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl combine chai concentrate, milk, vanilla bean, cinnamon, sugar, eggs and almonds.  Add mixture to bread.
  • Gently use a large spoon or rubber spatula  to press the bread down to coat.  Do not mix or stir as that will break up the bread cubes too much.  Let sit for 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the bread.
  • Spray 6 7oz ramekins with cooking spray.  Spoon bread pudding mixture equally between the 6 ramekins. 
  • Place ramekins into a large roasting pan or baking dish.  Carefully fill pan or dish with water, about half way up the ramekin. Tent pan or dish with foil.
  • Carefully place dish into oven on the middle rack and bake for 15 minutes.  Then remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes or until pudding is mostly set.
  • Carefully remove pan or dish from oven and  remove ramekins from water bath.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature as is or with a with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dallop of whip cream. 

** Can be made in a medium sized baking dish instead of individual servings.  I baked it in a water bath.  Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes then remove foil and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until mostly set.

    Notyet100: Thank you so much!!

    Sonia {7spice}: Thank you!! 🙂

    Louise Mellor: Oh……those are the best – rich buttery bread puddings 🙂 I had to resist since my office has donut & bagel Mondays and has pie/cake Thursdays — I’m eating things that I don’t normally eat on a weekly basis now. Gotta learn to cut back where I can. I think this Chai Latte Bread Pudding can be very decadent with croissants & half & half though! 🙂

    Hi Nathalie! Thank you!! I bought the Chai Latte Concentrate from Target. You can also find Chai Latte concentrate or powder from the grocery store or Trader Joes. If you use the powder just mix enough to get 2 Cups of Chai.

    This looks great! I love the addition of chai to bread pudding-what a great idea.

    As aside, it was so nice to meet you at Camp Blogaway! I love your site.

    Triple Scoop: Thanks!!

    Chef Renee: 🙂 I may have to use the heavy cream next time too!

    hi, i am excited to bake this tomorrow and i hope to hear from you for i have 1 question to ask – just to be sure 🙂 i have chai latte powder and i read your response to Natalie to use “enough to get 2 Cups of Chai”. did you mean, 2 cups of dry chai powder? and later i add my chai powder into the milk. correct me if i am wrong. thank you so much! 🙂

    Hi Anina,

    Hope all is well. I’m so excited that you’re trying the recipe tomorrow. I hope you enjoy it.

    Based on the directions on the Chai Latter Powder container – measure out the amount of Chai Latte powder to yield 2 cups of liquid Chai Latte (not 2 cups of Chai Latte powder). Mix that amount of Chai powder with 2 cups of milk or heavy cream to yield 2 cups of liquid Chai Latte. Please let me know if you have any other questions. (you can use a bit more Chai Latte powder if you want a more intense/strong Chai flavor)

    I hope that helps. Enjoy!
