Home Style Bread Pudding

Home Style Bread Pudding just out of the oven
Here is an incredibly easy one. Bread pudding is a good way to use old bread which is around the house. Prep time is about 15 minutes and baking depends on the size of the pan you use, but should be no more than 30 minutes.

In this photo, my pan is deep rather than wide so I had to cut the bread into squares. Try to fit square bread into a round pan :)

I've never seen bread pudding served in Japan but I shared this dish with many of my Japanese friends and they really enjoyed it.

Here is an easy recipe for a quick breakfast dish.



Recipe

6 slices day old bread
2 tablespoons butter (cold)
1/2 cup raisins
4 eggs mixed
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Mix the milk and eggs in a bowl. Add in the sugar, cinnamon & vanilla.
2. Add a little of this mix to the bottom of the baking pan. Dip the bread into the egg mixture and a layer to the baking pan. Sprinkle the raisins on top and small pieces of butter. Continue this process of bread layers, raisins and butter until the pan is full.
3.  Sprinkle some sugar on top before baking. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for about 20 - 30 minutes depending on your pan size.
4. You can easily adjust this recipe based on how much you need to make -- it is quite flexible. Don't be shy to experiment.

Egg, bread & baking dish are ready
