Bread Pudding

One of my favorite desserts, a non chocolate dessert that is, is bread pudding. I have loved it since I was a child, it reminds me of home and warmth. I love that it is an understated dessert, sans frills plus it has bread in it.. how could it not be loved? Not to forget your home will smell delectable. 

It is also so simple to make. You start with a croissant

Tear it into medium sized pieces and place in a baking dish. I like to add a handful of chopped walnuts


 Then we have our five ingredient fix. 1 cup milk, 1 cup cream (it doesn't have to be heavy), 1 cup of sugar and 2 eggs. The fifth ingredient I leave to you.. a dash of cinnamon or a teaspoon of vanilla. I went with cinnamon.


In a pot swirl a few tablespoons of water with the sugar to dissolve. Then cook on medium heat till bubbles and thickens. Whisk occasionally till it starts to caramelize. 


In another bowl whisk the milk, eggs, cream and cinnamon. When sugar mixture is ready turn off heat and slowly, very slowly pour the eggs mixture into the pot stirring simultaneously. Else the sugar will harden. Once everything is mixed together pour over the bread and let sit for 10 minutes.


Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and enjoy! We were so busy enjoying it that I completely forgot to take a picture of the finished result.. : )

Kid's taste in desserts is interesting, when I was a kid my favorite was just an ordinary petit beurre with sweetened milk. And I swear I knew what is a chocolate cake, but still:)
Worth trying, tnx!:)

Hena Tayeb said...

I have made it with left over bread too but the croissants make it so much more light and fluffy.

Hena Tayeb said...

Croissants make it so much better. Light and fluffy.

Hena Tayeb said...

It is super easy and oh so good.

Hena Tayeb said...

lol..i think I should probably stop baking and so do a sit up or something.

Hena Tayeb said...

Hope you like it.

Hena Tayeb said...

I know..which is why I made you some chocolaty chocolate swirl brownie chunk ice cream!

Hena Tayeb said...

lol.. i know. While D understands and loves chocolate I had to convince him to try a chocolate chip cookie..and he hardly touched the cake we baked.

Ileana said...

I don't think I've had this before, but if I ever made it I would use chocolate pieces in place of, or perhaps in addition to, the vanilla/cinnamon.
