Bread Pudding

Post by gale force on Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:18 am

I seem to have a lot of stale bread in my house and I'd like to try a bread pudding, but the recipes I have just don't cut it. I love the pudding that is served on the Holland America ships, which is quite custardy. Can anyone help me here?

When my second cup of coffee hit, and my brain started to function, I realized I could just query the internet for the Holland America recipe, which I did. After looking at it and realizing that I would have to buy cream, whole milk and lemon I'd just toss the bread!!!! Look at all the money I just saved! pig

In case you decide to try it another time,here's the simple thing that I do: (may not be Holland America style!)

Whisk up an egg. Add dash salt, about 1 tsp. cinnammon & 1 tsp. vanilla; a big handful of brown sugar - maybe 3/4 cup - and mix.
Tear bread in small pieces and coat with mixture - till all bread has been coated. Stir in a handful of raisins (to taste), cover with milk and bake at about 350F for an hour or less- till set the way you like it.

Gale Force..don't forget about the calories you saved. Instead, you can now have an extra glass of liquid fruit, aka wine! cheers

How decandent! I can only eat a very small piece of fudge, homemade of course and then I've had enough. Couple that with the wine and I would never leave your couch.

I wanted to thank you Observer for your easy Bread Pudding recipe. I tried it tonight and it was delicious. It didn't make a bowl so big that I knew I would end up throwing it out - just right (generously) for two meals. Warm from the oven with a little Cool Whip......superb!

Just enough that you can get all the pieces coated. between 4-6 slices, I would guess. I have a friend who likes to use raisin bread - eliminates adding the raisins - but I never HAVE leftover raisin bread!

You're right! Warm from the oven is the absolute best - and another topping option is half and half - or just plain milk for me - or ice cream.

Glad to hear it worked for you and you enjoyed it!

Whoops! Used wrong quote - this one was supposed to be in response to gale force!

If you want rbw, cut off the crusts. It makes the pudding smoother. I used plain white sandwich bread and a slice of whole wheat also. Think it was 5 slices in total.

I remembered this recipe but left it in Florida - had to go looking for it again. More than worth it! Tonights dessert with roast pork, potatoes and gravy with green beans for a veg. Looking forward to those cold roast pork sandwiches tomorrow!! thanks again Observer!

Glad you enjoyed it gale force.

It was kinda cute at Easter - I made pie - and one family member was really disappointed that there was no bread pudding!! Go figure! Next time - the easier route with bread pudding instead of the rigamarole of making pie! LOL
