Budin de Pan


  • Servings- 5-7
  • Preparation Time- 1 hour


  • 1 loaf of sliced bread
  • 7 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1 additional cup of sugar that will be used to carmalize and mold.
  • ½ cup of nuts (prepare the nuts by crushing them)
  • 1/2cup of raisins
  • One teaspoon of either lemon juice or orange rind.
  • 1/8 teaspoon of grounded cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Cooking Instructions:

  • In a medium sized saucepan melt the sugar. Do this over a low heat and continue to heat until the sugar becomes caramel. You will then use this caramel to caramelize the sliced bread.
  • Using a large bowl put the slices of bread in it with 6 cups of water. Using your hands make sure the bread gets soaked very well. Continue to soak the bread for 15 minutes.
  • Using a colander drain all of the extra water.
  • Place the bread in a bowl and then add the hot milk along with the vanilla.
  • Now add the eggs, sugar, colves and cinnamon to the bowl and carefully mix.
  • Pour the caramelized sugar into the pan and proceed to bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Remove the bread from the mold, and let it cool.
  • Serve on a cold plate.
