Scatter cranberries and raisins evenly over the surface of the soaked bread and press the dry fruits slightly to submerge. As I did not have cranberries, I have used dried apricots and raisins.

Easy bread pudding recipe

This pudding should be baked in a water bath. Add very hot water to a pan and keep the baking tray in it. The water should come halfway up the sides of the baking tray. Water bath prevents it from curdling or getting burnt as it is a very delicate food.

Now place the tray along with the pan containing hot water in the middle rack inside the oven.

Bake the pudding in a preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the pudding comes out clean.

Remove the bread pudding from water bath. After it cools, you can cut it and serve dusted with powdered sugar.
