It is the Olympics season and my dear hubby is like glued to the TV. We went out for a quick dinner and he rushed home to watch our Malaysian women single. Too bad his ‘girlfriend’ lost. While he was so excited with the badminton match with Mulan from China (hmmm…what a name) and his ‘girlfriend’, I decided to bake a bread pudding from the half loaf of expiring today Gardenia bread.
I cannot stand the suspense and agony of watching our Malaysian team losing so that’s why I never watch any matches. Too ‘chi kek’. My bread pudding is very easy to do and I have baked a lot of bread pudding.
For today’s pudding, I use :
Bread – Half a loaf, spread with butter
Banana – three to four, slice into pieces
Raisin – a handful
Milk/cream – About 200 ml but quantity depends on your baking dish (use enough to just make them moist but not overflowing with milk)
Sugar – three tablespoon or reduce if you plan to sweeten them with jam
Find a casserole or any deep baking dish and oil the bottom
Spread some butter on the bread and cut them into quarters.
Layer the bread, banana and raisin in the baking dish
Beat egg, milk and sugar
Pour into the bread. Pour enough to cover the bread and let it soak. Do not put too much or you will have soggy pudding. Leave to stand for a few minutes.
Bake, covered with aluminim foil in 200 deg celcius oven for 20 minutes.
Open the cover and bake for another 10 minutes
Leave till warm so the pudding firms up.
Serve with icecream, whip cream, jam or any type of sauce you like.
By the time our Malaysian woman single player (sorry I don’t know her name) tapau balik kampung, my pudding is ready already. And my kids finished them in one sitting. Yumm…..
If you look at my related posts and compared the recipes, you may find some differences. Well, I never stick to one method or ingredients of cooking. Whatever recipes I have here are typed ‘live’, i.e. whatever I remember and used. Normally, I myself refer back to my old posts to recall how I cooked something. Hehehe, that’s me.
