Easy Bread Pudding

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.
