Tiramisu Bread Pudding


This recipe is a by-product of my numerous bread-making experiments. And my love for tiramisu!  I have used  day-old (or even more than a day old as long as it was in the refrigerator) challah bread, sweet rolls and french bread. Combining the basic ingredients for tiramisu and adding a healthy dose of kahlua, this bread pudding is excellent even the day after it was made. If it lasts that long….


  • 8 oz  day-old french bread, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup espresso coffee or very strong regular coffee
  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 6 oz ricotta cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup kahlua
  • butter to grease baking dish
  • ground chocolate for sprinkling


  1. Place bread cubes in a mixing bowl.   Combine  1/2 cup kahlua and coffee and pour over the bread cubes. Let soak until liquid is all absorbed. Set aside or refrigerate.
  2. In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Add milk, cream and cheeses.  Stir until well combined.
  3. Add the soaked bread (bread should be mushy) into the milk mixture and carefully combine.
  4. Grease baking dish with butter. Pour mixture in dish.
  5. Bake in preheated 350F oven until golden brown (mine took 55 minutes) and center is set (not wiggling anymore) and sides are pulling away from dish.
  6. When done, remove from oven and pour the remaining 1/2 cup kahlua.  Cool on wire rack.  Sprinkle ground chocolate on top and serve warm or cold with ice cream or just plain, warm heavy cream!

Tiramisu in a bread pudding? It sounds too good to be true. My biggest problem with tiramisu is when the ladyfingers haven’t been soaked enough, but make the tiramisu into a bread pudding and you’re guaranteed to get a moist and delicious treat!! I love this idea, so creative!
