French Toast Bread Pudding
Consider making this luscious bread pudding for a special breakfast or brunch during the holidays. This recipe is from Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker by Robin Robertson © 2012, The Harvard Common Press.

10 ounces soft white Italian bread, cubed (about 8 cups)
6 ounces soft or silken tofu, drained
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups nondairy milk
1/4 cup pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
1 tablespoon vegan butter
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts

1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Spread the bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes to dry the bread.
2. Thoroughly oil the slow cooker insert or spray with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer the dried bread to an oiled slow cooker crock, or one that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
3. In a food processor, combine the tofu, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt. Add the milk and 1/4 cup maple syrup, stirring to blend.
4. Pour the tofu mixture over the bread and push the bread pieces down beneath the mixture to moisten them. Dot with bits of the vegan butter and sprinkle the top with the pecans. Cover and cook on High for 1 1/2 hours or until firm. Serve topped with additional maple syrup.

    • Rainn Kenyon December 17, 2012, 1:11 am

      Pina colada cake. I could use a bit of summer right now…

  • Caroline December 13, 2012, 3:31 pm

    I would love to try Slow Cooker Granola. I can’t imagine making a crispy granola in a slow cooker. Don’t you need liquid???

  • Stephanie in NC December 13, 2012, 3:34 pm

    Mmmmmmmmmmm. So much sounds good but that pumpkin chocolate chip bread is calling me!

  • Laura December 13, 2012, 3:35 pm

    It’s hard to choose, but I’m going with Sherried Mushroom Crostini…I can’t turn down mushrooms!

  • Stephanie in NC December 13, 2012, 3:35 pm

    I’m also sharing on Facebook!

  • Judy Goldfarb December 13, 2012, 3:35 pm

    Artichoke and Mushroom Frittatta
    Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cheesecake

    I can’t wait to try the French Toast Bread Pudding that you posted!
    I hope I win!!!

  • Colleen December 13, 2012, 3:37 pm


    I recently acquired a slow-cooker when my sister got two for her wedding. I’d been making your slow-cooker recipes on the stove and thought I was so clever because, why would you cook something for 6 hours when you can do it in 30 mins? Oh, how wrong I was! I’m a total convert now. Should have known you’d never steer me wrong in the kitchen! Coming home to the smells of a delicious meal that I can just plate and eat is officially my favorite form of self love.

  • Rachel E. December 13, 2012, 3:39 pm

    I’ve had my eye on this book! I really want to try the Chai-Spiced Breakfast Bread!!!

  • MizzB December 13, 2012, 3:41 pm

    First up – the French toast bread pudding recipe listed.
    Already gifted a niece with this book and a new slow cooker for her growing family; helping her stay the vegan course by having dinner ready for family when she and her husband get home from work.

  • Cadry December 13, 2012, 3:43 pm

    I’d most like to try the artichoke spinach dip! Sounds irresistible!

  • Melissa December 13, 2012, 3:43 pm

  • MizzB December 13, 2012, 3:45 pm

    Question: From which of your books is the cauliflower pictured on the header? Would love to make that dish – looks so good. Looks almost as good as your Gobi Manchurian recipe from last year’s VegNews food issue!

  • Simona December 13, 2012, 3:47 pm

    I’m very curious about everything!!! Hope to be lucky and get my hands on this book 🙂

  • Morgan December 13, 2012, 3:47 pm

    WOW! Lots of yummy sounding recipes! I love the idea of slowcooker vegan everything, especially the desserts! I would start with the Warm and Creamy Artichoke-Spinach Dip and Chocolate Truffle Cake 🙂

  • brook December 13, 2012, 3:49 pm

    oh my–how to pick just one? since i’m forced, i think the Savory Mediterranean “Cheesecake”–but everything sounds absolutely AMAZING!

  • Chef Amber Shea December 13, 2012, 3:56 pm

    Zabaglione-Inspired Bread Pudding or Chocolate Truffle Cake! Both immediately caught my eye (partly thanks to the photos, no doubt).

  • Kelly M December 13, 2012, 4:00 pm

    First recipe that I would try would definitely be the French Toast Bread Pudding !

  • carla December 13, 2012, 4:04 pm

    Warm and Creamy Artichoke Spinach Dip!

  • Laura Vondenhuevel December 13, 2012, 4:09 pm

    It would HAVE to be Warm and Creamy Artichoke-Spinach Dip – it’s the one thing I miss about dairy, a good, ooey, gooey spinach dip! Bring on that and some GF crackers and I’m set! Maybe some celery with it too…

  • Laura Vondenhuevel December 13, 2012, 4:13 pm

    Posted it to my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/vondelynn

  • Erin December 13, 2012, 4:17 pm

    If I have to pick one, absolutely the Chickpea and Artichoke-Mushroom Pâté! Nom Nom.

  • Sabrina O. December 13, 2012, 4:19 pm

    Sausage ‘n’ scramble Casserole would be oh so yummy in my tummy. I’ve spent too much time with my children today.

    The Chocolate Truffle Cake, definately. The photo only made me want to try some more:)

    Shared the givaway link on my facebook page.

  • Tanya December 13, 2012, 4:35 pm

    Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Bread! And then your slow-cooker marmalade to go with it. Every time an orange drops from the tree outside, I think of that recipe.

  • Grace December 13, 2012, 4:37 pm

    I would like to win the cookbook and try 3 recipes to begin with –
    – upcountry pate, granola stuffed baked apples and berry banana breakfast bread.
    Thank you.

  • gaby December 13, 2012, 4:47 pm

    Indian pudding oooo, I’ve had something like that at an indian restaurant, almost like a sweet polenta! Also the tutti frutti cobbler sounds intriguing.

  • Amanda (@AWeathergirl13) December 13, 2012, 4:51 pm

    I would LOVE to try the Mushroom & Artichoke Frittatta – it is almost impossible to find a frittatta anywhere that is dairy free, let alone vegan! This sounds amazing to me and I’m dying to try it!!! Mmmm….bring on brunch! 🙂

    Also, I have tweeted @AWeathergirl13 and Shared on FB (Amanda Huxley).

  • Kim December 13, 2012, 4:56 pm

    I would make the Chocolate Truffle Cake first thing! I’ve never tried to make any kind of cake in the slow cooker before!

  • Sandra Lee Childs December 13, 2012, 4:59 pm

    I had a hard time choosing just one but I think I’d try the Spiced Pumpkin Cake first!

  • bex December 13, 2012, 5:04 pm

    I didn’t see if this was open to international entries but to carry on with the seasonal flavors in my house I would love to try out the pear mincemeat crisp. We just picked up a slow cooker yesterday! Thanks for the posted recipe. I will definitely be trying that soon too 🙂

    I’m in the mood for something savory right now, so I’d probably try the Cheesy Mushroom Chorizo Frittata!

  • Jessie December 13, 2012, 5:45 pm

    I would make Indian Pudding first. I usually make it for Thanksgiving, but didn’t have time this year. Having a slow cooker recipe would’ve been a huge help!

  • Carolyn Pierce December 13, 2012, 5:50 pm

    The first recipe I’d make is that yummy-looking Chocolate Truffle Cake. My mouth already is watering just thinking about it! OOOOHHHH! I’d also like to try the Sausage ‘’n’ Scramble Casserole and the Artichoke-Spinach Dip. But all the recipes sound scrumptious! Happy holidays!

  • Carolyn Pierce December 13, 2012, 5:52 pm

    I just shared your FB post on my FB page 🙂

  • Arlene Hanson December 13, 2012, 6:15 pm

    I want to make the chocolate truffle cake right now!! Then I’d explore the book for about 2 hours and write a list to go shopping to make SOMETHING from it. Yummmm.

  • jac December 13, 2012, 6:39 pm

    i’d have to go for the bananas foster bread pudding!

    Apple-Cinnamon Steel-Cut Oatmeal!

  • Gina December 13, 2012, 6:55 pm

    Chocolate Truffle Cake. Because I am only vegetarian and it might seduce me to go vegan.

  • Sheri A December 13, 2012, 6:58 pm

    Chocolate Truffle cake would do it for me!! 🙂

  • Jessica Eagle December 13, 2012, 7:00 pm

    I would like to try the Chickpea and Artichoke-Mushroom Pâté as I usually enjoy that kind of dish.
    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  • radioactivegan December 13, 2012, 7:52 pm

    The chickpea and artichoke-mushroom pate sounds great!

  • Marci December 13, 2012, 7:53 pm

    I have had a slow cooker for years but rarely use it because I just don’t have any good recipes for it. These sound delicious! I have been looking at this book for quite sometime. I would love to win a copy so I can finally have some use for my slow cooker.

  • Cheryl Ross December 13, 2012, 7:58 pm

    The pumpkin breakfast quinoa sounds great.

  • Jessica C. December 13, 2012, 8:23 pm

    I want to try the Pina Colada Cake!! Yum!

  • samantha k December 13, 2012, 8:26 pm

  • Katey December 13, 2012, 9:02 pm

    The Three-Way Pumpkin Bread Pudding caught my eye first. Followed by pretty much all the rest of them!

  • Melissa December 13, 2012, 9:04 pm

    Pumpkin chocolate chip bread sounds yummy – I LOVE that combo!

  • Jeanne E December 13, 2012, 9:06 pm

    all sound yummy …but the first I would do is the apple cake.

  • Deborah Saas December 13, 2012, 9:16 pm

    One look at the delicious possibilities offered by this cookbook have confirmed that I am in a major crockpot rut! Chili, vegetable soup and tomato sauce… so sorry, but you boys will have to sit on the proverbial back burner for a while while I plunge into the Chocolate Truffle Cake, Pumpkin Bread Pudding and Slow Cooker Granola. If I win this cookbook, I will be very busy indeed…

  • Deborah Saas December 13, 2012, 9:16 pm

    I just posted this on Facebook too!

  • Teslaca December 13, 2012, 9:24 pm

    Wow, that cake looks good! But I’d have to try the Chickpea and Artichoke-Mushroom Pâté first. That sounds awesome!

  • Betty A. December 13, 2012, 10:17 pm

    The first three I’d make are: Warm and Creamy Spinach-Artichoke Dip; Seven-Spice Cashews; Pear-Mincemeat Crisp. I can hardly wait!

  • Jess December 13, 2012, 10:50 pm

    After seeing that picture how can you choose anything but the Chocolate Truffle Cake!

  • Jess December 13, 2012, 10:51 pm

    And I Tweeted about the giveaway!

  • Mike December 13, 2012, 11:36 pm

    Berry-Banana Breakfast Bread: I can’t but wonder if it’d even make it out of the crock before I’d start devouring it…. 🙂

  • Karen December 14, 2012, 12:56 am

    Oh my goodness! Too much to choose from, but I would definitely try the French Toast Bread Pudding. Or the Chocolate Truffle Cake!

  • Jessica Pringle December 14, 2012, 2:56 am

    It all sounds delicious, but since I LOVE lemon flavor on almost anything, I’m going to pick the Lemon-Ginger Poached Pears!

  • Beth December 14, 2012, 4:26 am

    I’d actually love to try the French Toast…. looks like I found my Christmas morning breakfast recipe!

    I have your other slow cooker book, Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker and just love it, as I do all your books. But from this book, the first recipes I would make would be the Chocolate Truffle Cake and the Carrot Cake with Pineapple. I am not much of a dessert person, but these appeal to me no end! Thanks for all your wonderful ideas, Robin. You are an inspiration!!

  • Kathy December 14, 2012, 7:52 am

    They all look so good. But if I had to pick just one I would love to try Chocolate–Peanut Butter Cheesecake.

  • Kathy December 14, 2012, 7:54 am
  • Melissa Hayes December 14, 2012, 9:12 am

    Ohh, the warm and creamy artichoke and spinach dip sounds like it would be amazing. And so easy in the slow cooker!

    Mmm — chocolate truffle cake. Or anything with artichokes in it. YUM!!!

  • carole December 14, 2012, 10:08 am

  • Karen December 14, 2012, 10:42 am

    I would love to try making the Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Bread. I love making bread in my crock pot!

  • Babette December 14, 2012, 2:16 pm

    The artichoke mushroom pâté sounds terrific.

  • Katherine December 14, 2012, 2:25 pm

    Slow Cooker Granola gets my vote. Buying Granola is so expensive! If I could make a good one in my slow cooker….awesome.

  • sharon December 14, 2012, 4:55 pm

    And thanks for writing another VEGAN cookbook…we can’t have too many of them out in the world so that everyone can see that vegan food is NOT a denial of anything, but delicious and yummy.

  • Courtney December 14, 2012, 5:53 pm

    Artichokes are my favorite food in the world, so I have to say that the Chickpea and Artichoke-Mushroom Pâté sounds lovely!

    The first on your list: Warm and Creamy Artichoke-Spinach Dip. Yum!

  • Cynthia December 15, 2012, 3:36 am

    I would like to try these recipes first as I need something to take for a morning breakfast style snack to my bible study,
    Artichoke and Mushroom Frittatta
    Greek Frittatta
    There are several other recipes that would be great to try as well. I am amazed all the recipes we can make in a slow cooker. It’s nice not to have to bake in an oven when a slow cooker will do most everything. Slow cookers are wonderful for all those potlucks and other parties one must attend and bring something.

  • Cynthia December 15, 2012, 3:38 am

    I shared on Facebook

  • Marsha A. December 15, 2012, 8:22 am

    I would really like to make one of the bread puddings or apple cakes…yum! Thanks for an amazing giveaway! I’ve tried to win this book SO many times, lol. If I don’t win it this time, I promise I will finally just buy it!

  • Heather December 15, 2012, 10:12 am

    I’m on a mushroom kick, but I’ve never used them in my slow-cooker, so I’ll say the Sherried Mushroom Crostini.

  • Carole December 15, 2012, 10:17 am

    I have used my slow cookers a lot, especially in winter, but admit I’ve never tried making a dessert. So I vote for a pudding – maybe the Zabaglione-Inspired Bread Pudding….

  • Kay S. December 15, 2012, 10:57 am

    Yum! How can I pick just one? I want to try them all! I think the creamy artichoke dip would be the first one I’d try. Sounds perfect for New Year’s Eve!

  • Psuke December 15, 2012, 11:01 am

    Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecske. Definitely.

  • Joy J December 15, 2012, 12:44 pm

    I can’t believe I overlooked the french toast bread pudding when I was trying to find a french toast casserole to make for Christmas morning! I will definitely be making that soon. I would love to try the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread too.

  • Janet M December 15, 2012, 1:25 pm

    Wow, I really want this book. I would first try the nut recipes. So cool that you could make these in a slow cooker–They all sound delicious and just right for the holidays.

    The Artichoke and Mushroom Frittatta sounds awesome!

  • Lisa-Marie December 16, 2012, 11:10 am

    Would love to try Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa!!! I love making breakfast in the slow cooker.

  • Nick Kuiper December 16, 2012, 11:20 am

    I want to try the scramble casserole & the fritatas! What can I say, I love breakfast!

  • Lorri December 16, 2012, 11:24 am

    Though all the recipes sound like something I would love to try, the Greek Frittatta is whats sticking in my head.

  • Matylda December 16, 2012, 11:29 am

    I am eager to try Cheesy Mushroom-Chorizo Frittata. I am looking for recipes that would convince my non-vegan husband to go vegan and I think this one should do the trick 🙂

  • Maria Sandoval December 16, 2012, 11:41 am

    I want to try the chocolate truffle cake!:)

  • Ali December 16, 2012, 11:46 am

    I would definitely like to try the Indian Pudding. I used to love eating it as a child, but haven’t tried a vegan version. The artichoke and mushroom frittata also sounds amazing!

  • Meridith December 16, 2012, 12:04 pm

    I’m a fan of Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker and would love to get my hands on this edition. The Savory Mediterranean Cheesecake sounds absolutely enticing.

  • Steph December 16, 2012, 12:07 pm

    That chocolate truffle cake looks EPIC! Slow cookers would make easy dinners for a college kid like me. 🙂

  • Michaelyn C. December 16, 2012, 12:18 pm

    The cheesy mushroom chorizo frittata!! That’s at least three of my very favorite foods in one dish!!

  • Lori December 16, 2012, 12:25 pm

    I’m a sucker for tropical flavors…Pina Colada Cake for me!

  • Lisa Lind - Minneapolis December 16, 2012, 12:29 pm

    Merry Christmas, Robin! I will definitely try to make the Chocolate Truffle Cake!!! Looks soooo delicious!

  • Karen McCabe December 16, 2012, 12:42 pm

    I will be making the fresh toast bread pudding for Christmas breakfast for my whole family! Can’t wait to try it! Never met a Robin Robertson recipe I didn’t love….

  • Marsha December 16, 2012, 12:45 pm

    Sausage ‘’n’ Scramble Casserole

  • Karine December 16, 2012, 1:08 pm

    The seitan pot roast is amazing!!!

  • Katherine December 16, 2012, 1:13 pm

    the smoking chipostle bean dip!

  • Holly Nall December 16, 2012, 1:14 pm

    Mmm, Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cheesecake 🙂

  • Birgit Davis December 16, 2012, 1:16 pm

    Oh my goodness.. French Toast Bread Pudding!

  • Laura Oliver December 16, 2012, 2:15 pm

    I’d like to try the “Indian Pudding.” I bet I’ve got all the spices on hand.

  • Anna December 16, 2012, 2:28 pm

    Straight to the granola-stuffed baked apples!

  • Dawn (Vegan Fazool) December 16, 2012, 4:12 pm

    Which recipe to try first, hmmm…one of the pates, probably, or maybe the wiener balls 🙂

    Thanks for doing another wonderful giveaway! I’m so excited about this one, been dying for this book so I can break open my slow cooker that is still in the box (it’s a big 7 quart one…).


  • Donna R. December 16, 2012, 6:27 pm

    I’d definitely try Pumpkin Breakfast Quinoa first… Sounds sooooo yummy! 😀

  • Mrs. GV December 16, 2012, 7:10 pm

    The Indian Pudding sounds very interesting!

  • Jennifer K December 16, 2012, 10:05 pm

    I borrowed a copy from the library to try it out and it’s great! Was planning to purchase but a free copy will do just fine 🙂

  • Karen December 16, 2012, 11:00 pm

    Geez, I gotta pick only *one*?? Okay, well, even though I have a weakness for pumpkin anything, I found myself drawn to the Coconut Rice Pudding with Mangoes. I have a weakness for coconut, too. Plus, I have a slow cooker I haven’t had occasion to use. It would be fun to haul it out and make something fragrant and comfort-y. : )

  • Shannon Thevegan December 16, 2012, 11:32 pm

    Thanks for the give away! I would love to try the amish oatmeal. I love oatmeal. I feel so good when I eat it. I am always looking for more recipes for oatmeal.


  • JohnZ December 17, 2012, 12:42 am

    The french toast bread pudding sounds appealing

  • Amanda December 17, 2012, 1:26 am

    It’s a no-brainer. Bread pudding and French toast are two of my favorite things. Together as one dish? That has to be something to get excited about!

  • Marianna December 17, 2012, 8:39 am

    There is no contest on which recipe i would make first. I would make Warm and Creamy Artichoke-Spinach Dip and then proceed to eat the whole batch…what can I say, I am addicted to the stuff 🙂

  • AutumnTao December 17, 2012, 11:10 am

    I’d making that bread pudding for Christmas morning! I was toying with a few recipes, but that one takes the cake! Cheers and Happy Holidays.

  • Barbara P. December 20, 2012, 11:35 am

    I would most like to try the Warm and Creamy Artichoke-Spinach Dip!
    Thanks, great giveaway!
