Lila's Boiled Spice Bread Pudding

Updated: Nov 7, 2019

This is my second favorite part of Jiggs Dinner. I'm obsessed with my Aunt Lila's Bread Pudding and ask her to make every time I make a trip home to Newfoundland!


  • 4 to 5 slices bread

  • 1 Cup Flour

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2 to 1 Tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/2 to 1 Tsp Allspice

  • 1/2 to 1/4 Tsp Cloves

  • Pinch of Salt

  • 2 Tbsp Margarine

  • 2 Tbsp Sugar

  • 1/2 small onion, chopped


Sift flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and spices together. Set aside.

Soak bread in water for a few minutes then squeeze out excess water.

To this bread, add melted margarine and finely chopped onions.

Add dry ingredients.

Form into ball; place in pudding bad. Cook 1 hour with Jiggs dinner.
