Having this craze of baking suddenly today. It's working night, I know. But I just kinda having the urge to bake. Just a simple one would sufficiently do.
What to bake? A simple No-Sauce Bread Pudding. Got the recipe from the internet at the office this afternoon. There were thousands of them on the internet. So, I just closed my eye, picked one, and print.
This recipe is from allrecipes which I think can quite match to what I have at home.
- 6 slices day-old bread
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted I used margerine
- 1/2 cup raisins (optional) I changed this to chocolate chips, leftovers from my last cake baking session. And it sure more delicious than raisins, don't you think? :p
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups milk I used 2 tablespoon of powder milk for each cup.
- 3/4 cup white sugar Should've put in 1 cup of white sugar, though.
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). I baked it in the microwave since I was to lazy to preheat the oven.
- Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. I used my mom's Corelle porcelain bowl. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins or chocolate chips.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
Here's what it looks like:

It actually puffed up while it was baking in the oven and it was beautiful. But it deflated instantly when I took it out. Now it's flat and fugly. Was wondering if it was natural for bread pudding to deflate like that?
|Yep.. It still holds the moist in the pudding :p|
Despite the look, the taste was quite amazing. Only that I think I need to add in more sugar next time. Some people said, drizzle some sugar on top of the pudding should make it more delicious. And as it baked, the sugar will be toughened and crystallized and it'll make the top part of the pudding crispy. Will try this next time :)
