Bread pudding doesn't have to contain yeast breads. A recent Chowhound discussion focused on recipes built around quick breads and cake.
Stale pound cake works well in bread puddings with berries, team_cake says. Emme likes bread pudding that combines carrot cake with a buttermilk custard. Leftover scones, muffins, and even pancakes can all work in bread pudding. And day-old cornbread and buttermilk biscuits work well in both sweet and savory puddings.
