Bread Pudding

  • 1 loaf bread, cut into 1” cubes (1 lb.) – we used a brioche bread because it soaks up custard really well!
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup PB2 Cashew Powder (128g)
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Sweet Cashew Butter Sauce

  • 8 tablespoons (½ cup) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup PB2 Cashew Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Make the Bread Pudding

  1. Spray a 9”x13” baking dish with butter or nonstick baking spray.
  2. Add bread cubes to the prepared dish in an even layer.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, milk, PB2 Cashew powder, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt until combined. Make sure to mix it well so that the eggs are fully incorporated.
  4. Pour the custard over the bread cubes, and press the cubes down to ensure they’re submerged in the liquid.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. This step allows the bread to soak up the custard, so don’t skip it! If your bread is extremely crusty, you can let it soak for longer!
  6. When the soak is completed, preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  7. Uncover the bread pudding, and bake until it’s set in the center, about 50-60 minutes. It should be puffed and golden brown, too.

Make the Sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave.
  2. Add the sugar, PB2 cashew powder and salt, stirring until combined.
  3. Pour in the milk and the vanilla extract.
  4. Whisk until the mixture has thickened, then serve warm over the bread pudding.


  • Store leftover bread pudding covered tightly in plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It reheats well in the microwave.
  • Store the sauce separately and reheat when ready to serve.
