It is the first time I am making bread pudding and I am glad the experiment came out successfully.

As a huge consumer of bread, my kitchen is never void of stale bread, so recently I have been thinking of ways of consuming bread in its entirety not sharing some with the bin:-) It’s a shame I did that some time ago! Stale bread could be such a delight!

I decided to experiment with my leftover pieces:

stale bread pieces

Ingredients:

  • Leftover bread (about 200-250g in my case)
  • 1/2 liter  semi-skimmed milk
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 10 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (How I love cinnamon especially the aroma:-)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Method:

  • Break the bread into small pieces
  • Add sugar ,salt (to  your taste) to lukewarm milk and mix well.
  • Soak bread pieces in milk solution for approximately 5  mins
  • Beat your eggs and pour over the soaked bread
  • Mix everything together and pour in the baking pan
  • Preheat oven to 220 degrees
  • Bake for 30 mins

You should expect something like this more or less!

Allow to cool and you can enjoy your bread pudding with some tea.
