Current desire: Something sweet and crunchy
Current personal state: Lazy
Current status of pantry: Rather empty
Minutes to complete meltdown if not given something sweet: 30
Cure: Bread pudding 🙂
If you’re having one of days where you need a hug, or some comfort…
Or maybe you’re just missing your Mum- make this.
The smells that fill your kitchen will hold you in their arms.
And that taste of crunchy, yet custardy bread will take you home.
Easy-peasy bread pudding
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
4 slices white bread, cut into cubes
(I keep the crust on, but feel free to remove them)
2 eggs, beaten
50g caster sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cinnamon, plus a bit more for sprinkling
2 tbsp coarse sugar granules for sprinkling
1. Preheat the oven to 160º C. Heat the milk gently and keep aside to cool a little. In a bowl mix the eggs, caster sugar, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon.
2. Gradually mix the warm milk into this egg-sugar mixture, a spoonful at a time, stirring constantly.
3. Put the bread cubes into a buttered oven-proof bowl, and pour the custard mix over the bread slowly.
4. Top with the sugar granules and a dash of cinnamon. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, and eat warm!

I love bread pudding–I love it with ice cream on top. Next time you should put bananas in it.

I know..home recipes are the best aren’t they?
Your comment made me nostalgic too 😦
Looks yummy 🙂 I had too look up what caster sugar was though.
I wasn’t aware that it was uncommon! It’s basically finely ground sugar (not as finely ground as icing sugar though!).
This recipe looks delicious and easy…my favorite!! I’ll def be trying this 🙂
