Bread Pudding

Tonight I wanted a comforting dessert to go with our milk gravy pork chops. I was talking with my mom and came to the conclusion bread pudding would go great. I have tried a few recipes but was in the mood to try a new recipe. So I pulled out my new cookbook and sure enough there was one in there :-)

I added white chocolate chips and cherry chips to the bread pudding. I also like to serve it with some half and half over the top.

Old-fashion Bread Pudding (From: Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen)
  • 3 to 4 packed cups cubed bread (ok if stale or frozen)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/3 c. sugar (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Have ready a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Spread the bread in the pan.

Beat together remaining ingredients. Pour this custard over the bread.

Baked about 35 minutes, or until firm but not dry.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

How quick and easy this was to make. And really tasty. We topped it off with a scoop of ice cream simply because my man will eat ice cream with everything.
