From Mamma’s Kitchen

Being an ardent dessert-lover, I’ve always wanted to try my hand at baking and did so a few times, however, a tad unsuccessful. Recipe books and innovative baking techniques off blogs do help, but nothing beats attempting a recipe straight from your mother’s kitchen. If it’s comfort food, it is even more exciting. I tried my hand at baking a very basic Bread Pudding as per mom’s instructions. Here is the recipe. I am sure a first-time baker can successfully give this a shot.

–          Ingredients:

  • Milk – 2 cups
  • Butter – 150 grams
  • Approx 7-8  slices of bread (tear them into small pieces) In case you prefer a healthier option, use whole-wheat bread
  • Brown Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Vanilla Essence – ½  teaspoon
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Nutmeg
  • Raisins/Almonds/Cashews (optional)

–       Method:

  • Heat milk in a saucepan on medium flame. Add the butter. Stir it until melted. Keep aside to cool.
  • Mix sugar, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla essence in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer and then add the milk to it.
  • Put the bread pieces in a greased tin. Pour the mixture on top of it.
  • Bake for about 40-45 minutes. (I use an oven, not a microwave and hence it takes a comparatively long time to bake)
  • Voila! Serve warm or try it with a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream.
