My adventures yesterday took me to making Bread Pudding and Vanilla Sauce! I had never made this before, but to my surprise it was actually very easy. Next time I may add a few things to it…maybe some walnuts or chocolate chips, just to experiment. LoL! Anyway, here are the recipe’s I used! Very Tasty!!!
3 eggs (beaten)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter (melted)
3 cups milk
10 slices hearty farmhouse bread (toasted and cut into cubes) I myself used an 8 pack of hotdog buns, opened them up and put them on a cookie sheet and toasted them in the oven and they worked perfectly! Just the right amount!
1 cup raisins
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees, grease a 2 quart baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the 3 eggs, sugar and brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and milk together.
Gently stir in the bread crumbs and raisins, and then lightly spoon mixture into the prepared dish.
Bake until browned and set in the middle, about 55 minutes to an hour. Cover with foil after about 30 minutes to prevent over browning. Let stand for about 10 minutes before serving.
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour (I used 2 tablespoons)
a pinch of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
1 tablespoon of vanilla (I used 1 1/2)
Whisk everything together in a heavy saucepan until smooth. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon about 10 to 15 minutes.
Pour sauce over warm bread pudding….
Refrigerate any leftovers for later!
