Biscuit pudding

You know… like bread pudding, but biscuits? And OH MAH GAH this is amazing. This may be the ultimate comfort food. And yet another recipe that tastes a million times better than it looks. 😉

See, my fabulous sister got me these books from Cades Cove, which is my most favorite place on earth. It’s home in every sense of the word. I’ve been picnicking at Carter-Shields as long as I can remember, and The Yankee and I love taking Kiddo there now to splash around and count “water spiders” down by the mill.

ANYHOO… the books. The books are Recipes, Remedies and Rumors from the Cades Cove Preservation Association. And they’re fantastic. Poison snake bite cure for dogs? In there. Squirrel dumplings? You bet. But also pork tenderloin, chicken and dumplings, fried potato cakes, you name it.

Biscuit pudding


  • And my new favorite: biscuit pudding! This is criminally easy:
  • 5 cooked leftover biscuits, crumbled
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl beat 2 eggs, and add sugar, milk, nutmeg and vanilla and mix
  2. Crumble in biscuits and stir
  3. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan and bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes

See what I’m saying? So easy. And so, so good.

  2. This is such a great idea! I’ve had croissant pudding before, but not biscuit. I bet you could make this savory and have it be awesome too.

  3. I’m baking this right now using buttermilk biscuits I made last night (they were kind of hockey puck like which is very typical for me making biscuits) but have added chocolate chips instead of raisins at my daughter’s request. We will see how it turns out!

  4. Your recipe sounds good. I rarely make biscuits but may have to make some just so I can make the bread pudding. Have you ever tried using dried cranberries in place of raisins?

  5. This sounds yummy, I have NEVER heard of this before…an I’m really not certain why not. If you have bread left over you’d make bread pudding, if you have biscuits…well why not make biscuit pudding?? I LOVE Cades Cove the history is amazing. I hope they are keeping up in good condition, as when we were there last the school / Church needed to be worked on rather badly.
    thanks for sharing I look forward to trying this recipe and I’m certain some others that you have posted. I’m planning a baby shower for my sister in March any ideas for a baby boy’s grand entrance ??? Michelle
