OfenschlupferWhen I have some old sweet rolls I love to use them in the swabian variation of bread pudding. It is called “Ofenschlupfer” and consists traditional of sliced rolls and apples, soaked with eggs and milk, sprinkled with sugar and baked until golden. It is one of my favourite dishes of my childhood.

In the last years I forget this family recipe a little bit. What a pitty – it is such a delicious dish, a of a soft bread layer under a crispy crust, a mixture of tangy fruits and sweet caramel. Served with a vanilla sauce it is a great dessert (or main dish if you choose not to share it)

Today I prepared a variation of the traditional recipe and used blueberries instead of apples.

It tasted great and I promised myself that I will cook Ofenschlupfer more often in future!


  • 2 one day old  rolls
  • 100g blueberries or 1 apple, sliced
  • 2 Eggs
  • 275g Milk
  • 20g sugar
  • 1 Pinch Salt


  • 40g sugar
  • 20g Butter in small pieces

Slice the rolls in thin slices. Butter ovenproof form and lay half of the roll slices on the bottom of the form. Cover with berries or apple slices, then finish with the remaining roll slices. Mix eggs with sugar, salt and milk and pour the mixture over the slices. Sprinkle with sugar and top with little butter pieces.

Bake at 200°C for 30 min until the upper layer is golden and the egg is cooked.

I sent this entry to Yeastspotting, Susans weekly showcase of yeast baked good.

    such a lovely post… so nice the idea of “recycling” bread. one question of the kind “lost in translation”: what type of rolls are you referring to? I mean… here in Sweden we have cinnamon or cardamom rolls… what you used, judging from the picture, looks more like bread… or?
