Budin is a dish that definitely reminds me of home. It’s my father’s specialty, he always saves the odds and ends of bread loaves in a storage bag in the freezer, until he has enough to make this decadent Puerto Rican dessert. Puerto Rican budin, or bread pudding, is unique in that it’s usually served cold, much like a flan. It also have a similar texture to flan, because it’s cooked in a water bath, which results in a custardy interior that melts in your mouth.

What Ingredients Are In Budin?

Budin is super easy to make, because most of the ingredients are pantry staples that you probably already have or can easily pick up at your local Publix. The custard base is made with eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and warm holiday spices, like vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Raisins are also a MUST, don’t skip them! An important part of making budin is making sure it doesn’t stick to your pan is greasing the pan, which I do with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!®. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® is known for its buttery taste and has good fats from plant-based oils. It helps me make the perfect budin!

How To Make Budin?

In order to make this recipe, you first tear the bread into chunks. Precise sizes don’t matter, because as you mix the custard and bread, you’ll continue to slightly break up the bread. To make the custard, you mix the eggs, milks, sugar, salt spices and raisins. Then you pour the mixture into the greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar and bake in a water bath. Some recipes start with a caramel base, like a flan. I like mine without the caramel, because I think budin is plenty sweet as it is! The addition of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® gives this recipe that perfectly buttery taste, but with the benefits of omega-3 ALA.

Puerto Rican style bread pudding is best served at room temperature or cold, which is the traditional way of serving this classic recipe. This allows the budin to maintain it’s beautiful swirled appearance, and makes it easy to slice into portions. Once the budin is cooked, remove it from the water bath and let it cool for an hour at room temp. Then cover with foil or plastic wrap and finish cooling the budin in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to serve the budin, slice it into portions. You can also doll this up with whipped cream, chopped nuts or fresh berries.
