Bread Pudding

As you probably all know by now, I am always in lookout of easy, simple and delicious recipes. Lil A comes home from her daycare being ravenously hungry. If I do not have any healthy treats handy, she will straight dive into the junk stuffs. She loves fruits but she wants something special along with the fruits. This bread pudding cannot get any more simpler and tastes very good. She was happy eating it, and kept saying, "bhalo" means good. And I was happy to put something good on her plate. 


Breads - 5-6 pieces
Raisins - 12-15 pieces
Whole milk - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 2 medium
Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Vanilla essence - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt - 1 pinch
Cinnamon powder (optional) - 1/2 teaspoon

Cut each bread into small pieces. Or if you are impatient like me, tear the bread into random pieces and spread it on a glass baking tray. Add the raisins on top of it.

Warm the milk in a microwave for a minute. Add sugar to it and stir. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and slowly pour it to the milk with stirring. Add vanilla and cinnamon powder to it, mix well. Add the liquid on top of the breads.

Put it in the oven at 180C/300F for 50 minutes. I used the convection mode of my microwave and baked it for 50 minutes at 180C. It turned out a lovely shade of brown.

You can serve it warm or cold, and even with a scoop of ice cream. We however love to have it warm.

I converted the last image to sepia for Black and White Wednesday # 99, a culinary photography event started by Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook and hosted this week by Priya of The Humpty Dumpty Kitchen. For participation rules, visit Cindystars blog.

Happy October, friends!
