Kid’s favourite bread pudding made simple.. I had some butter buns which was going to spoil. So I thought of using it in pudding. Generally almost stale bread is best for bread pudding.. It’ll not be too soft for the pudding to turn mushy..

You can replace the full cream milk and fresh cream to low fat if you want.. No chance of replaceing the butter, its bread and butter pudding after all ! :).. Only way is to eat in moderation.. :)

These measurements are for a 6′ square dish ..

Perparation time : 10 mts

Baking time : ~50 mts @ 150 C (if you’ve an old oven then you can crank up the temperature to up to 180 C. Every oven is different like every stove.)

Serves : 8 -10

Ingredients :

  • Bread slices – 6 -7 (I’ve used 2 buns and 2 slices of bread for my pudding)
  • Butter – 2 table spoon
  • Full cream milk – 1 cup
  • Fresh cream – 150 ml
  • Sugar – 2 table spoon ( Ive used brown sugar instead of bleached ones and only 2 tablespoon of it since I’m adding chocolate which is already sweet)
  • Eggs – 2
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
  • Now you can add any chocolates, nuts, raisins or even dry fruits according to your taste. Here I’ve added Chocolates and some raisins.

Method:

  1. Prepare the dish for baking by spreading a thin layer of butter.
  2. Cut the bread into 1′ chunks and place in the dish. Give a light press, so that all the bread are tightly packed.
  3. In a clean dry bowl add eggs, butter and sugar and give a few mix with the whisk. Do not over whisk, otherwise the butter may split.
  4. Add in the milk and cream and mix it well.
  5. Now you can add the essence and if you like cinnamon flavour, you can add 1/8 tsp of that too..
  6. Pour the milk mixture slowly in to the bread. If the bread starts to flot, lightly press with a spoon so that all the bread is soaked with milk.
  7. Slowly push inside the chocolate pieces and spread the raisins.

  9. Keep it aside for an hour, if you want you can keep it in the fridge too.. But remember to take it out and allow it to come to the room temperature before keeping it in the oven.
  10. Sprinkle some sugar on top of the pudding and keep it for baking..
  11. When its around 45 mts check to see if it’s done by inserting a stick or a sharp knife. If it comes out clean it’s ready to take it out. Since I’m adding chocolate mine will show some melted chocolate.
  12. Serve it hot or cold..  My kids love it hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.. :)
