Ever since making our own Homemade Eggnog last year, I’ve been obsessed with incorporating it into recipes. Bread pudding is my absolute favorite dessert, so it was only natural that I whip up an Eggnog Bread Pudding you can make in the Pressure Cooker!
Eggnog Bread Pudding Recipe
Growing up, my dad would always buy the cartons of store-bought eggnog to share with us over the holidays.
It was okay, but it wasn’t something I craved or found as exciting as he did.
Last year, I thought it would be fun to make homemade eggnog (both grown-up and child-friendly versions) because I had heard that they were like night and day – and my goodness, they are! Homemade eggnog is rich, creamy and sooo indulgent. The carton stuff now tastes like eggnog-flavored milk to me.
Now that the holidays are approaching, I’m having so much fun incorporating my homemade eggnog recipe into other recipes, and this bread pudding is the first up to share!
I love a good bread pudding. If we’re at a restaurant that I know has good bread pudding, I will purposefully order an appetizer for my supper so that I have plenty of room for dessert!
Today, I’m sharing a super easy eggnog bread pudding you can make in your IP or electric pressure cooker, and I’m topping it off with Torani Caramel Sauce.

Right now through 12/31/18 (or while supplies last), Meijer has a rebate offer for Buy One (1) Torani Sauce, Get One For Free – so naturally, I grabbed two! (They are super easy to find with all of the ice cream toppings in the Nuts/Popcorn/Salty Snacks aisle.)

How to Make Pressure Cooker Bread Pudding
Prepare your springform pan by greasing it with oil or butter and then covering the bottom with some paper towel and then sealing with tinfoil. This helps “capture” any moisture from the IP and prevents it from making your bread pudding soggy.
First, chop up your bread into 2″ squares. This recipe moves fast so you want those ready.
You want the bread to be somewhat dried out so that the bread pudding doesn’t get soggy. Leaving out the loaf overnight can help.
Next, prepare your eggnog base.
Place the milk, cream and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium-low heat and heat.
Meanwhile, separate the egg whites and yolks and place the yolks in a large mixing bowl. (Save the whites for macarons or meringues.)
Beat the egg yolks for two minutes until creamy and light. Add the sugar and beat for two more minutes.
When the cream and milk mixture starts to boil, pour into the egg mixture.
Whisk together, then add in the Torani caramel sauce, and then pour over the bread (or add the bread into the mixture).
NOTE: you want the bread to have touched the liquid, but you don’t want it to be saturated.
Stir to coat the bread completely and then fold into the prepared springform pan.
Place the trivet in your electric pressure cooker and then add 1 1/2 cups water.
Place the springform pan on the trivet and secure the lid.
Cook on manual for 30 minutes, then natural release.
If you want a crunchy top, as shown, place the cooked bread pudding in your oven and set to the “broiler” setting. Watch carefully so that it does not burn. Remove the bread pudding once the top is browned.
Drizzle on more Torani caramel syrup and serve.
