Classic Rich and Creamy Grape-Nuts Pudding Recipe
Have a box of Grape-Nuts cereal in the pantry?
Did you know that you can make an excellent custard-like pudding with crunchy Grape-Nuts?! Serve up this classic dish as a decadent dessert or even as a yummy breakfast. I think this would be a great addition to any holiday or special occasion brunch, too! YUM.
Note from Collin:
I grew up eating Grape-Nuts pudding (it was one of my favorite treats!), so it has a special place in my heart and reminds me of my childhood. 😍 I’m thinkin’ it may not sound that appetizing to some of you, but seriously, don’t knock it until you try it. 🙌
Such a simple and easy to make idea!
Essentially, this method includes whisking all ingredients together including milk, cream, vanilla extract, eggs, and spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Pour all of it into a 2-quart casserole dish with Grape-Nuts cereal and bake for a little over an hour until the mixture becomes firm.
You’ll want to place your casserole dish inside a larger roasting pan, then fill the roasting pan with water about halfway before baking.
P.S I’m still loving my vintage inspired Cornflower Corningware! So fun.

OK, guys, I’m here to report this custard is delish! You can serve it up warm or cold – it’s up to your preference. You can also top it with whipped cream, fruit, or additional Grape-Nuts for some crunch. The texture reminds me of yummy Flan, and I love how the grape nuts become soft and fit in nicely with the custard.
I actually had never heard of Grape-Nuts pudding until Collin shared with me that it was one of her childhood faves. I only vaguely remember my parents making us eat this cold cereal in the 80s and it didn’t go well. HA! I think you’ll enjoy this yummy baked cereal vanilla pudding!
