  • 9 x 13 casserole dish
  • measuring cup


  • 1 cup Grape-Nuts Cereal Fill measuring cup with Grape-Nuts with water to bring the water to the one cup mark. Please not it will not equal one cup of water. You only want the water to reach the fill line to moisten the cereal.
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsps. vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 tbsp. melted butter


  • Soak your Grape-Nuts in a measuring cup which you will fill with water until you reach the one cup mark. It might not equal one full cup of water so be advised to just fill the cup to that line with the cereal in it.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray a deep-walled casserole dish with nonstick spray and place it on top of a walled baking sheet. Add 2 cups of water to the baking sheet which the casserole dish will sit on.
  • Place soaked Grape-Nuts in the bottom of the sprayed casserole dish.
  • In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk in the milk, and melted butter and combine fully.
  • Pour mixture over the cereal and bake for 90 minutes uncovered in the water bath. This water helps to keep the pudding moist and prevents it from cracking and drying out.
  • Allow pudding to firm up at room temperature for at least one hour before serving.
  • Serve with fresh whipped cream & extra cinnamon topping *if preferred
