Scrumptious Bread Pudding

bread-pudding.jpg

Bread pudding was the dessert of choice post-Turkey dinner on Christmas eve 3 years ago, I had gotten the ingredients and had a handwritten recipe copied off the internet in preparation for my first time attempting bread pudding. Alas! The prep for the actual dinner was so tedious that I scrapped bread pudding off the list, and fortunately, everyone was too stuffed to care. Fast forward to 2 and a half years later, earlier this year, bread pudding was finally attempted in our kitchen --- by my husband!  

What had inspired him to make bread pudding after us talking about making it for so long was the remaining half loaf of bread lying in our pantry - it was a day away from its expiry and the thought of having to throw it out and waste that half a loaf was too much to bear for the husband, and thus he began researching bread pudding recipes. The first time he made bread pudding, it was too sweet, the second time he did it, he tweaked the recipe and added blueberry jam and raisins and cut the measurement for sugar into half, it was still a little too sweet, the third time he cut out the jam, added some sliced bananas and reduced the sugar level further, it was close to being perfect. Then came the 8th attempt - he threw in ground cinnamon, retained the sliced bananas and raisins, got the sugar measurement just right and the bread pudding came out purrrr-fect! It really is a wonderful recipe for bread pudding that you can include in your Christmas dinner this year, or simply for times when you have some leftover bread in your pantry.
