Bread pudding is not a dessert that everyone enjoys, my experience has been you either love it or leave it. I love it! I like it with raisins without, with peaches, apples chocolate and some sinfully sweet sometime gooey topping.
Bread pudding is like a po’ girl’s dessert, which may explain why I like it so much.
When it comes to last-minute and easy desert this is an obvious answer.
You don’t need a bunch of fancy ingredients; everything will be in your fridge.
The secret to great bread pudding is the moisture, you don’t want it too dry, it useless dry even if you try and add some sweet buttery Praline sauce, bread pudding is simply dead when it’s dry.
Hold on what am I saying, sweet buttery Praline sauce can certainly resurrect dry pudding, any desert for that matter.
Well there you have it! If you happen leave it in the oven to long, don’t fret just go ahead and make that sweet maple Praline sauce and all your sins will be forgiven.
Now let’s get to this simple dish.
I forgot to mention this recipe is specifically for two people, or you can be like me and eat them both…here’s how you do it, break up your bread, soak and let sit, when they ask you what you’re doing just say “oh nothing”!
When they go to bed pre-heat the oven pop in, get some sprinkles cause they make night feel like day, pop a scoop of ice cream on top….enjoy, and clean all your dishes so there not a trace of evidence, if by chance they get up to use the restroom and ask “what’s that lovely smell is” tell them you have a candle burning in the kitchen and swiftly shoo them back into bed. It works for friends and family too.
I love eating treats alone, I feel such a rush that you can only get after living a square life with a bunch of little babies and one workaholic husband for so long……yes my life is so normal I get enjoyment from the simplest of things like, sneaking around and making treats all for myself. So here’s all you need to make a treat for yourself, or make it romantic and get the boo-thang’ in on it. by the way are they still using boo thang’? Sometimes I feel so removed from society, kids will do it!
Here’s all you need.
