Mom always made chocolate bread pudding, so I suppose I was at least 35 or 40 before I had anything else. Peg once ordered “regular” bread pudding in a restaurant and offered a taste. Doh! For all these years I’ve eschewed this delightful stuff?
Now, many years later, I’ve made many a batch of bread pudding, but wanted a small one to avoid wasting leftovers.
And being as I’m a cheap Yankee, using hamburger buns left over from the ham radio club picnic yesterday seemed a good idea.
- 3 hamburger buns
- 1/4 C raisins
- 1/4 C sugar
- Sprinkle of nutmeg
- Sprinkle of cinnamon
- 1 C milk
- 1 egg
- 1t vanilla extract
I coarsely cubed the bread, added the raisins and spices. I mixed the egg and sugar, added the milk and vanilla, then mixed all ingredients.
I used a muffin tin, filling all six cavities, then baked for 30 minutes. The puddings came out of the oven all puffed up, and collapsed as I wrote this.
Always good with a bit of creme anglaise, too. I just have to post a recipe.
