Easy Pineapple Dessert

This pineapple bread pudding recipe isn’t exactly like traditional bread pudding, but I think it’s even better. It only takes a few minutes to prepare before hitting the oven, and in just about an hour, it’s ready! The bread soaks up just the right amount of milk and mixes beautifully with the pineapple juice. The result is a fluffy, fruity, delicious dish that also happened to be super easy to make.

I actually really love this as a side dish since the sweetness isn’t overwhelming. It pairs nicely with ham on Christmas! That being said, it’s still sweet enough to make the perfect pineapple dessert, something simple but delicious. And this reminds me of french toast too, with the mix of bread, egg, and sugar, so you know it would taste just as good for a sneaky little breakfast treat. Basically, you can eat this pineapple bread pudding any time. I can’t imagine a scenario where I wouldn’t want to be eating this!

How to Make Pineapple Bread Pudding

This bread pudding is so simple! Preparation takes just a few minutes, and then it goes in the oven for 1 hour to bake up. Plus, it’s only 6 ingredients: pineapple, bread, milk, sugar, eggs, and butter. Can’t get an easier than that.

  1. Chop up your bread into small cubes.
  2. Beat eggs and set aside.
  3. Combine melted butter and sugar in a mixing bowl, then add in the eggs and milk, and the stir in the pineapple.
  4. Gently stir the bread cubes into the mixture.
  5. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 1 hour at 325°F.

When it’s done, let it cool for a few minutes before serving. I like to sprinkle a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon on top to add a little extra sweetness. I think it’s the perfect addition, but it’s totally optional.

How to Store Pineapple Bread Pudding

Assuming you somehow manage to have leftovers of this stuff, you can easily save it for later. Just cover the dish and store it in the refrigerator for up to a couple of days. It reheats nicely, so just put it back in the oven when you want to go in for a second round.
