Bread Pudding

Sometimes you just crave for something sweet at the end of a meal or for breakfast. One of the easiest recipes is bread pudding. My mom would make Shahi Tukra which is fried bread dipped in sweet creamy milk. Bread pudding is similar but a baked variation. I have used plain brown bread and skimmed milk but the dish can be elevated with the use of a fancy bread like Challah and half and half. It will be more decadent. Addition of nuts like walnuts or pecans and a bit of drizzled icing on top can add more color to the dish.

Bread Pudding


3 bread slices

1/2 cup milk

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 tbsp raisins

1 tsp vanilla essence

Break the egg and egg yolk and mix. Add milk, honey and sugar along with vanilla essence. Whisk together.

Place the bread slices on a china porcelain baking tray overlapping each other. Place the raisins in between the bread slices. This will prevent the raisins from charring when baked.

Pour the milk on the bread. Press the bread slightly so the milk is absorbed and leave it for five minutes. The drier the bread the better as it will soak up the milk better.

Bake in a preheated oven at 170C for 30 mins. Serve hot.

Tip: You can add orange rind or cocoa or spices like cinnamon and nutmeg also to the bread pudding.
