blueberry bread & butter pudding

After browsing through all of those blueberry pie recipes last week, I have had a craving for, you guessed it, blueberries!  So with the goodness of blueberries fresh on my mind I decided to try an old recipe given to me by a sweet lady that said her grandmother used to make it for her when she was a little girl.

I had everything I needed except the blueberries, so I made a quick trip to the market to pick those up.  Upon returning home I was able to put this together and bake it in very little time!  I allowed it to cool and then popped it in the fridge for our after dinner dessert.


  • 8 slices of thin white bread
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 quart blueberries (4 cups)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

How to make it:

  1. Remove the crusts from the bread.
  2. Butter each slice of bread.
  3. Put blueberries, sugar and salt into a medium sized pan and boil slowly for 15 minutes stirring frequently.
  4. Butter a deep baking dish.
  5. Alternate slices of bread and berry mixture until all are used.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  7. Serve very cold with whipped cream.

Whipped cream:

  1. Put 2 tablespoons of sugar in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup heavy whipping cream.
  3. Whisk or beat with a mixer until the cream forms soft peaks.  Do not overbeat.

Whipped cream turns out best if you place your mixing bowl and the whisk, or beaters, in the freezer for about 15 minutes prior to whipping the cream.

Simple, mouthwatering blueberry bread & butter pudding! Try it for dessert! #desserts #blueberry #recipes Click To Tweet

The moment of truth came after dinner when I offered my husband, Paul, a piece with whipped cream on top.  Whipped cream not being his favorite thing, he gave me a little “you know I don’t like whipped cream” look, and accepted it anyway….hmm?  He must have been craving dessert!  He took a bite and I could tell by the look on his face that the recipe was a keeper!

And when I tasted it, I agreed!  So if you are looking for a fruit filled dessert without the work and time involved in making a pie, try this.  If blueberries aren’t your favorite, try substituting with the berry of your choice.

Thank you for stopping by and reading and I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Hi Teresa,

First of all, it’s lovely to meet a fellow Between The Lines blogger 😊. However I must say how yummy this pudding lots that have pinned & earmarked to try this week. I’m not normally good at making desserts … but I’m going to give it a whirl anyway!

Thank you! I hope you enjoy. It is a recipe from Maine and probably the 1930’s, so a little different than some. Let me know what you think!
