Before we get down to the tute on how to make this, I should say to everyone …
*Danger* Danger Will Robinson* Danger*
This stuff is INCREDIBLE and ADDICTIVE. Seriously folks, I made an 8×8 pan of this and have eaten pretty much the entire thing myself. And I just made it yesterday. What is wrong with me? My goodness! My tummy thanks my cousin for the recipe … but my hips will be upset with her for life!
After I did my post on “This and That Soup” my cousin mentioned in her comment about something she did similar with bread pudding. It intrigued me as I had never had bread pudding let alone made any myself. So, she sent me the recipe and here we are … one new addiction later!
What you Need:
8×8 Square Pan
10 Slices of Bread*
2 Tbls Butter
1/2 Cup Raisins
2 Cups Milk
3/4 Cups White Granulated Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Cinnamon
*What she suggested and what I now do is whenever you have leftover bread that’s kinda stale but usable [such as the butt ends that nobody eats] slap them babies in the freezer and when you have 10 slices … let the party begin!
Break apart the bread into smaller pieces and lay it in the 8×8 pan until the entire bottom is covered.
Drizzle the melted butter over the bread.
Sprinkle the raisins on top.
In a medium mixing bowl beat together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon until very well blended.
Pour this over the bread in the pan.
Using a fork, squish down on the bread until all the bread is covered and it is soaking up the eggy-milky mixture. [like my vocab don’t cha?!]
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until the top springs back when slightly tapped.
Ok, so if I had not been so obsessed with how great this stuff tasted I might have actually remembered to take a picture of the finished product BEFORE I ate like 1/3 of the pan … IN ONE SITTING. Doh! Just use your *imagination* to pretend what it looked like as a whole.
Now, inquiring minds want to know … what easy, awesome recipes do you have to share??
