Cinnamon Bread Pudding for Diabetics


With the increase of diabetes (which unfortunately runs rampant in the Cajun culture), this recipe provides you a diabetic-friendly version of the dish you grew up loving.


  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 4 tbsp margarine, cut into pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2/3 cup Equal Spoonful or Splenda Sweetner
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 cups French or Italian bread, cubed or torn into small pieces


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

In a medium saucepan, heat the milk and margarine to simmering. Do not boil. Remove from heat and stir until margarine is melted. Cool 10 minutes.

Step 3

In a large bowl, beat the egg and egg whites until foamy; mix in the Equal, spices and salt. Blend the milk mixture into the egg mixture. Stir in the bread.

Step 4

Spoon the mixture into an ungreased 1 1/2 quart casserole. Place the casserole pan inside of a roasting pan on the oven rack and add one inch of hot water to the pan.

Step 5

Bake uncovered in a preheated 350 degree oven approximately 40 to 45 minutes until the pudding is set and a knife inserted comes out clean.

This is one of those dishes that you can call me to come over and enjoy with a cold glass of milk or fresh coffee. Enjoy.
