Bread pudding is down-home dessert that can also be microwaved for a warm, healthy unconventional breakfast on a cold winter morning.


Ingredients

  • 12 slices sandwich bread , preferably stale
  • 4 apples , or pears
  • 8 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups milk , preferably homogenized
  • 1/2 cup raisins , optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325F (160C). Lightly butter a 9×13-inch (3-L) baking dish. Cut bread into cubes. If bread is fresh, toast in preheated oven for 2 minutes. Peel, core and slice apples or pears. Place eggs, sugar, spices, salt, vanilla and 1 cup (250 mL) milk in a large bowl. Whisk together well. Stir in remaining milk. Scatter half of apples over bottom of baking dish. Cover with half of bread, then remaining apples. Scatter with raisins. Cover with remaining bread. Slowly pour milk mixture over top. Press down gently to submerge bread.
  • Bake, uncovered, in centre of 325F (160C) oven until pudding seems set in centre when jiggled, about 1-1/4 hours. Serve warm or cold. Covered and refrigerated, bread pudding will keep for 2 days. If using a microwave to warm up a portion, cover lightly and use medium power.
