Finally Back to Blogging

By Geekmom

Hello all.  Went back to work in September and the world began moving at a breakneck speed again.  I meant to do this blogging thing, but something else always ended up taking precedent.  Today I will at least start working on the pile of recipes that I owe people.  Today it is a very simple bread pudding.  I have made lots of recipes that are rich and such that are wonderful, but require heavy cream or half and half.  When all I want to do is have bread pudding to get rid of bread that is starting to get stale, I don’t want to go to the store for a special ingredient.  (Admittedly, Ohio is cold in January and currently it looks especially blechy.)

This week I made supper for the amazing 3193 Falcotech kids.  I bought too many buns so rather than let them go bad, I made a special treat for myself.  Ask the amazing K.A. Stewart, I cannot avoid ordering bread pudding if it is on a menu.  Last year when I visited her, we went someplace and I got it for lunch.  I might have ordered soup… or not.  All I remember was the divine bread pudding I got that was the size of my head.  It was delicious.


Bread Pudding

Heat oven to 350 degrees and butter 9 x 13 casserole.

Scald 4 c. milk and pour over 8 cups of ripped bread.  (Any bread will do.  Really!)

Mix together 1/2 c melted butter, 1 c sugar, 4 slightly beaten eggs, 1/2 t salt, 2 t cinnamon, and 1 c golden or normal raisins (I sometimes leave this out – totally optional).  Add it to the bread and milk and pour into the pan.

Bake 50 to 60 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.


So there you are!  Bread pudding.  A really wonderful way to get rid of the evidence that you were slightly stupid… or a way to prove that you are overwhelmingly brilliant!
