Helpful tips

I used homemade white bread for this recipe but you can use a bread that you have and love. Brioche or croissants would be excellent in this recipe. Make sure that your bread is dry and absorbs most of the liquid before baking.

I use maple syrup to sweeten the cups, but you can use honey if you prefer.

If you don’t have muffin tins you can bake the bread pudding in a normal casserole dish.

You can improvise and add ingredients that you like and remove the ones you dislike.

I made 21 bread pudding cups but you can end up with a different number depending on the amount of the ingredients you use.

I put the muffin pans on the middle rack and baked for 30 minutes at 355F. Every oven is different so check your for doneness at 20 minutes.

Run a butter knife around the bread puddings cup to help release it from the pan. It might stick to the sides.
