Last few days my Laptop was in ICU 😀 and I was having withdrawal symptoms . The boys suggested baking and I decided to make a quick bread pudding.
This is a very simple yet delicious pudding that can be eaten hot or cold as desired. A fabulous fragrance of nutmeg and raisins and the aroma that fills your senses while it is cooking is killing……hmmmm no wonder it is a hot favorite with us all.
I do not trim the edges but those who don’t like them can trim the slices of bread and cut them in triangles or smaller squares.
Bread slices – 8
Margarine or butter -30 grams
Full cream milk – 1 cup
Eggs – 2 large
Milkmaid or any condensed sweet milk – 1/2 tin ( 200 grams)
Nutmeg – 1 pinch
Raisins – 1/2 cup ( coated in flour or they will burn )
Start by trimming the edges of the bread or if you like them then just cut the bread in triangular pieces and butter them slightly on both sides.
Arrange the slices in a layer in an oven proof dish 8′ x 6″ is good enough.
Beat the eggs and blend together with milk, condensed milk and nutmeg.
Pour the mixture on the arranged slices of bread .
let the mixture get soaked properly. keep for five minutes and then bake in moderately hot oven ( 160 degrees) for 30 to 40 minutes or till the top becomes golden brown .
take out and if you can turn it over do that and put it again for five to ten minutes for that extra golden glow on the other side but if you have impatient boys with bottomless pits as tummies then it will look like this after removing from oven 😀
Before I knew the pudding was out in a box and brutally attacked . leaving behind something which resembled nothing that I know
This tastes wonderful and I am sure you will enjoy making it as much as my kids enjoyed eating it ;D
Have fun . 😀 😀
