Meditation 4.9.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle
I love bread pudding, and the dish happened to be a reoccurring theme in The Covenant. So, I have been craving it since I finished the book.
Unfortunately, the only recipes I have for bread pudding serves eight or more, and lately, it has just been Fish and me.
The custardy nature of the dish was a challenge to make work on a smaller scale, but I figured it out. I think it came out pretty good
Bread Pudding for Two.
1/3 Cup Raisins, soaked in water until they are plump.
1 Cup Milk
1 Tbsp Melted Butter, plus more for the pan
1/2 Tea Vanilla
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
3 Cups Cubed Dry Bread
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Hear the milk, melted butter, sugar, and salt until warm, add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Add in bread cubes, stirring well and "fluffing" with a fork. Turn into a buttered pan (I have a small 3 Cup casserole dish) and cook covered for 20 min at 350 degrees. Uncover and cook until golden on top, about another 10 min.
