Welcome back to Ineskohl Kitchen, your ultimate guide to comfort food and delightful recipes. Today, we’ll whip up a heavenly dessert that’s ideal for using up leftover bread— Bread Pudding! This treat is not only simple to prepare, but it also provides you with the flexibility to add your preferred flavors. Let’s get started!
To create this decadent dessert, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- – 1 loaf of Challah bread (Brioche bread can be used as well)
- – 4 large eggs
- – 2 cups of milk
- – 3/4 cup of sugar
- – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- – 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- – 1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg
Step 1: Preparing the Bread
Our hero ingredient is bread, in this case, we’re using Challah bread, an egg-based bread known for its sweetness and tenderness. To start, dice the bread into cubes and let it dry overnight on your countertop. This ensures it can adequately soak up the custard later on.
Step 2: Grease your Pan
Next up, prepare your baking dish by buttering it up for a non-stick experience. A fun tip – save your butter wrappers! They work perfectly for this step, as the residual butter on the wrapper can be used for greasing.
Step 3: Custard Creation
In a large bowl, beat the eggs and gradually add in the milk and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is well combined. Time for flavors! Add the cinnamon, pure vanilla extract, and freshly grated nutmeg into the mix. Make sure to whisk until all elements are harmoniously blended.
Step 4: Combine and Soak
Place your bread cubes into the greased dish. It should be packed nearly to the brim. Gently pour the custard over the bread, ensuring all pieces are coated. Press the bread cubes down into the custard so they can thoroughly soak up the flavors. Let this mixture sit and soak while your oven preheats.
Step 5: Bake to Perfection
Preheat your oven to 350°F (approximately 177°C). Once preheated, bake the pudding for around an hour. As it cooks, your kitchen will fill with an irresistible aroma that will make your mouth water in anticipation!
Step 6: Test and Serve
After an hour, check the pudding’s readiness by inserting a clean skewer into the center. If it comes out clean, your bread pudding is ready. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, then cut it into portions. Serve it with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, a drizzle of maple syrup, or some fresh fruit to elevate the taste.
The beauty of bread pudding is that it’s a canvas ready to be painted with your choice of flavors. Feel free to mix in raisins, berries, chocolate chips, or even diced apples for your personal touch.
