Bread Pudding

After much experimenting, I found that this snack has just the right portion for a late night snack for hubby. Besides, it has all the ingredients he loves – eggs, milk and  bread.

Best of all, it does not take a lot of effort to make, makes use of what’s already available in the fridge, is easy to warm up  and makes cleaning up an easy affair. For all its humble ingredients, it can be presented with much fan-fare simply by a dusting over with icing sugar or served with a dollop of ice-cream.

Come to think about it, my cheat sheet is growing longer by the week and that is what crafty housewives like me is getting good at!

Ingredients :

2 slices of Bread ( wholemeal or white )
soft butter
1 egg
½ cup milk
1 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon powder
½ cup cranberry
Chopped walnuts ( optional )

Method :

Grease the dish with butter.
Butter both sides of the bread. Cut into quarters.
Arrange in a medium sized dish.
Beat egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon until frothy. Pour over the bread.
Sprinkle cranberry over the bread.
Let the dish sit for a while so that the bread soaks up the egg mixture.
Preheat the oven to 160C.
Bake for 30-40minutes in the preheated oven until the top is lightly brown.
Serve with a dusting of icing sugar if so desired.
