Recipe Tips:

We changed the servings to 8 on this recipe, because of the high calories, fat, glycemic index etc. If you want it for breakfast, fine, eat 2 servings but a small helping for dessert works better for us.

This quick easy bread pudding recipe is not just for dessert it also makes a great weekend breakfast dish. If you are planning to serve this for breakfast, prepare the bread pudding recipe ingredients the night before, store them in the fridge overnight, and then assemble and cook them in the Crockpot first thing in the morning.

Since this slow cooker recipe calls for cooking the French Toast Bread Pudding on high, grease the insert extra well and keep a close eye on the bread pudding after the first hour to be sure that the bottom and sides of the pudding do not get scorched.
