One of the easiest desserts ever is bread pudding. Here’s how you can make it with an indian touch.
( Serves 2-3)
4 slices of bread
1 tsp oil to grease your loaf pan
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup dry fruit of your choice. I like using raisins and pecans
( Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts work really well in this pudding too)
2 large eggs- beaten
1 can Evaporated milk – 370 Ml ( almost 1.5 cup + a bit more)
1/2 cup sugar
I use sugar moderately but you can add upto 3/4 cup- depending on how sweet you want your pudding
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp Elaichi Powder (Cardamom Powder) – Made by simply crushing or coarsley grounding green cardamom seeds
3-4 drops of Kewra essence (1/4 tsp). If you don’t have it use good ol’ Vanilla extract.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Grease a standard 5×9″ loaf pan with oil and place bread slices in it. I divide each slice into 4 equal parts but you can make them smaller as well.
Add Dry fruit onto bread slices.
Next in a bowl mix together other ingredients – eggs, spices, milk and sugar. Once well beaten and nicely incorporated with each other, pour this mixture
Bake at 350 F for 40-45 mins until nicely set.
You can prepare a special bread pudding sauce like caramel or vanilla sauce, serve it with ice cream or drizzle maple syrup/ may be even honey and serve.
Enjoy this tasty treat.
