Can I make just two portions of bread pudding?

I want to make two little bread puddings in ramekins or little coffee mugs based more or less on this recipe:

I figure I'll halve the amounts more or less, but what should the baking time(s) be?

  1. Just bake long enough so that a knife poked into the center of each ramekin comes out clean. You could remove them from the oven when the knife is sightly moist and allow them to finish cooking on the counter as they cool but, if you don't have experience with that, you might not want to use that method in your first attempt.

    1. I'm going to guess 45 minutes. I would probably check them at 20 or 30 minutes to be safe, then more frequently after that depending on how "done" they're looking.

      1. Just cook it until it's done. Start with 30 minutes and if it looks like it needs more time it won't hurt it to put it back into the oven again.

        1. Thanks everyone. It helps. I'm pretty confident that this will come out fine. (And if not I'll drown it in whiskey sauce!)

          1. Thanks for all your advice. I soaked them for about three hours and I think the baking ended up being about 1 1/2 hours, but I sort of lost track. I just checked it now and then and when it was done I served it up. Attaching a couple of pics, with and without sauce. Amazing!
