Refrigerating Bread Pudding

  • Ensure the bread pudding has fully cooled if you've just baked it.
  • Place the bread pudding in an airtight container.
  • The more compact the container, the better, as this will help prevent the dish from prematurely going stale.
  • You can also cover the bread pudding with a layer of plastic wrap. The more protection you provide against air contact, the less dry the pudding will become.
  • The bread pudding will last for a maximum of 5 days in the refrigerator. But for best results, aim to use the dish within 2 days, where moisture loss will be less noticeable. 

How To Freeze Bread Pudding

  • Ensure the bread pudding is fully cooled before freezing.
  • Optional: cut the bread pudding into individual portions. This will help if you don't want to eat the leftovers all in one go.
  • Double wrap the bread pudding in plastic wrap.
  • Place the wrapped bread pudding in an airtight freezer bag or container. This helps to preserve the moisture in the pudding and protects it against freezer burn.
  • Label the container with the date so you know how long it's been in the freezer for.
  • Where possible, freeze any sauce separately from the pudding. Doing so helps preserve the texture and consistency of the dessert.
