I am from England and bread pudding conjures up images of bread, milk, eggs and lots of raisins!
Man how I hate dried fruit!! So you can obviously tell that this is not one of my favorite desserts.
I also like finding new recipes and Facebook seems to be a good place to find things. It is amazing what gets posted on there sometimes.
I have Alexis over here to thank for this recipe, she is so good at finding recipes online and then letting everyone know about them.
This however looks amazing and so yummy.
The recipe is at Chef in Training and I have had the privileged of making it twice now, although I think my hips are telling me not to make it again for a while!
It is bread soaked in a cream and sugar mixture. You then lay half the bread in a pan, cover with raspberries and then cover with remaining bread.
Bake for 40 minutes and then serve with vanilla custard or ice cream.
It even tastes great cold the next day!
I did however, find the recipe to be a little on the large size! So I cut it down in the amount and found that it still served 6 quite nicely.
The recipe asks for you to use cut up pieces of bread which I used but I found it easier with slices of bread the next time.
The smell in the house as it was cooking was divine and sweet.
We chose custard and man was it sweet and filling, but just what you need on a cold winters night.
