Q: I love to make bread pudding, and I finally have everything I need to make it. My daughter, however, will not eat it once it cools down. Is there a way I can reheat it so we can enjoy our dessert for more than just tonight?
A: Bread pudding is easy to reheat, all you need is an oven or a microwave.
Typically, people will want to reheat their bread pudding in the oven as you can be sure it is all the way warmed through. All you need to do is tightly wrap the dish (given it is oven safe) and place into a 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes, depending on the amount of bread pudding you have leftover.
When you want your dessert quickly, just add the amount you would like in a microwave-safe dish, and microwave on low power for two to eight minutes.
If your pudding dried out or lost its creaminess, simply add some heavy cream, whipped cream, or even ice cream before serving.
Bread pudding is a guilty pleasure for many of us, and now we do not need to eat it all in one night thinking it will go to waste. Instead, spread out the dessert over a few days and enjoy. Remember only to reheat what you will eat in one night, you should never reheat food twice.
