Coffee Liqueur Bread Pudding is a sophisticated and indulgent dessert that combines the rich flavors of coffee and caramel. It’s a perfect treat for coffee lovers and those who enjoy a twist on the classic bread pudding.


For the Bread Pudding:

  • 1 loaf (about 1 pound) day-old bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup coffee liqueur (like Kahlúa)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

For the Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Spread the bread cubes in the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, heavy cream, coffee liqueur, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and instant coffee granules.
  4. Pour the mixture over the bread cubes, pressing down gently to ensure all bread is soaked. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the center is set.
  6. While the bread pudding is baking, make the caramel sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar and butter. Cook until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth.
  7. Add the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Continue to cook for a few more minutes, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.
  8. Remove the bread pudding from the oven and let it cool slightly.
  9. Serve the bread pudding warm, drizzled with the caramel sauce.
  10. Optionally, you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on top.
