Honey Bread Pudding.

While it may seem that I have enough bread pudding recipes on this blog, I did not have a recipe for Honey Bread Pudding! Until now...come and take a look at this delicious dessert the whole family will enjoy! With no refined sugar...



I enjoy having honey sweetened desserts when ever possible!

This recipe for Honey Bread Pudding makes the fifth recipe for bread pudding on this blog...and for good reason. It is delicious, it is frugal and best of all it doesn't take an hour in the oven, thanks to my pressure cooker. If you had asked me 10 years ago "do you think you will ever use a pressure cooker enough to purchase an electric model?" I would have said no! Using a pressure cooker for anything seemed out of the question because they blow up, don't they? Well no,  in fact they don't!

I use my pressure cooker often, it is quick, easy and I always get good results.

But once a fear is taken in, it can be hard to shake. From this day forward I can honestly say, I do not want to have a kitchen without at lease one electric presser cooker as part of the kitchen equipment inventory. Especially for those more delicate items like bread pudding, cooking rice, easy to peel hard cooked eggs and potato salad in ten minutes. And while you might think that those kitchen chores don't warrant the purchase of an electric pressure cooker, ask yourself how much value does saved time on a busy day have to you? 

Plus, there is no refined sugar in this recipe. 

Because not only will Honey Bread Pudding be easy to make, so will hundreds maybe even thousands of different recipes when you use that pressure cooker! And yes I know this was supposed to be about making bread pudding in the Instant Pot. But rather than repeat the same reasons to make this delicious dessert that you will find in the other four recipes, I thought I might give a few good reasons to inspire you to get a new kitchen tool to work with! And there are no affiliate links in this post, only my true opinion and thoughts. Now let's get on to the recipe...


In my kitchen I have gone the extra step to develop recipes calling for honey while also having a sugar sweetened version available. In that way no matter the inventory I might have in my pantry, I can still put together a good and healthy meal for my family. As I have regained my health from a serious and long term bout of bleeding ulcers, I have noticed that sugar and I don't always get along. And never before noon! Therefore my favorite desserts are naturally sweetened, and now I have this delicious Honey Bread Pudding to add to my dessert list. 


Some additional thoughts on this recipe:

I like being able to mix and cook in the same mixing bowl. 

You will want to use glass or stainless steel. I prefer stainless steel, it is lighter and there is no danger of breaking anything!

In previous recipes I have covered the mixing bowl with foil before cooking, I have learned this is not necessary. 

Like most appliances, I have discovered that my Instant Pot cooks slightly different than many recipes I have tried. Mine seems to need an additional minute or two. Adjust the cooking time listed in the recipe if needed for your particular model. 


Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • whole wheat bread
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • salt
  • honey
  • evaporated milk
  • half and half or whole milk
You will also need the following:
  • cutting board 
  • kitchen knife
  • whisk
  • medium sized mixing bowl, that will fit in the cooking pot of the pressure cooker
  • Electric Pressure Cooker
Now we are ready to begin!



Honey Bread Pudding.
by the seat of my pants

4-5 slice whole wheat bread
3 large eggs or 4 medium
2/3 c honey
1 large can evaporated milk
1/4 cup half and half or whole milk
2 t vanilla
pinch of salt


Warm the honey gently on the stove or in the microwave. Set aside to cool. Dice the whole wheat bread into 1/2 inch cubes and set aside. 

In a medium sized stainless steel or glass mixing bowl* break the eggs. Beat well with a whisk. Add the evaporated milk, half and half, along with the vanilla and the salt. Using the whisk beat well, and add the honey beating with the whisk continuously. 



Add the diced bread, and press it into the milk. 

Add water to the cooking pan in the Instant Pot, place a trivet in the bottom. Carefully add the bowl of pudding. Secure the lid making sure to close the pressure valve. 



Cook for 9 minutes, when the timer has counted down, let rest NPR for 10 minutes. Carefully open the valve to release remaining pressure, open the Instant Pot and remove the cooked pudding to the counter to cool. 



When cool cover and refrigerate until serving time. 

Storage options for Honey Bread Pudding. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.

    1. Thank you! Sometimes when I make a baked bread pudding, I will butter the bread and sandwich it before pouring on the custard mixture, it is always so good. Plus who doesn't love a little more butter in their dessert pudding?
