Simple Bread Pudding

Hello there, bakers! I made this recipe before going to Kolhapur. I would have posted this there itself, but I couldn't, due to the problem in my cousin's computer. So here I am, with this recipe, today.

I learnt it under the Baking for Beginners section of the YouTube Channel Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana. I made a list of the ingredients required, and went down to purchase them.

I had made this recipe in the late-noon, after the lunch. I was pretty excited to taste it. After the 20 minutes, I brought it in the bedroom, where I served it to my parents, along with a cup of hot tea; they cherished it as well. My brother was more than happy, as the recipe has eggs in it! Proteins, you know?

(I've made a little bit of changes in the original recipe, and you guys can alter my recipe as well.)
So, here's the formula for the delicious bread pudding:


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4
Veg/Non-Veg: Non-Veg (Contains Egg)





Ingredients:

  • 10-12 White Bread Slices
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Essence
  • 90g Sugar
  • 500ml Milk
  • Butter
  • Chocolate Powder
  • Almonds (Crushed)
  • Cashew Nuts (Crushed)

Special Utensils Required: 

  • Egg Beater 
  • Baking Pan
  • Baking Tray
  • Aluminum Foil 

 

 Steps:

  1. In a small bowl, beat eggs, vanilla essence, and sugar together.
  2. Add warm milk in the bowl, and beat it together as soon as possible. (If you take much of time, the egg yolk can get cooked! I am sure you don't want to make an omelet there!)
  3. Pre-heat microwave oven on 150 degree. 
  4. While the pre-heat process is on, take the bread slices, and apply butter to only ONE side.
  5. Place the bread slices, with the butter side on the top, in a baking pan, in one single layer. 
  6. Pour the egg-mixture on them. Place the slices again, and pour the mixture again. Do it until all the slices are used. 
  7. Pierce through bread with a knife, so that the mixture goes deep in. Pour more mixture, in case it is needed. 
  8. Sprinkle choco powder, and decorate with crushed almonds and cashew nuts.
  9. Cover the baking pan with an aluminum foil. 
  10. In a baking tray, put water.
  11. Place the baking pan in the baking tray.
  12. Put the arrangement in the microwave oven, after you hear the beep, which marks the end of the pre-heat process.
  13. Keep the arrangement inside the oven for 20 minutes.
  14. Serve with a spoon and a knife!


NOTE:
  • Please try using a square-shaped baking pan to avoid a bread-mountain like it happened with me.
  • You might get an unpleasant smell of the eggs.
  • I used a microwave-safe dish as the baking tray.
