Bread Pudding, guerrilla style

Better stated as "how to make bread pudding when you've got a loaf of french bread that's going stale and you don't have a recipe."

So here's what I did.

I poured a can of evaporated milk into a saucepan. I added raw sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cardamom. Oh, and some butter. I stirred this around for a while until it was warm.

Then in a separate bowl I scrambled two eggs. I tempered the eggs with small amounts of the milk-stuff. then I poured the eggs into the milk-stuff (the heat was on low) and whisked for a while.

Then I cut up some french bread into cubes and soaked them in the milk-stuff.

Then I baked at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Oh, I added some whiskey into the milk-stuff too. Y'know, just for kicks. Rum would have been fine. I don't recommend vodka or gin, for obvious reasons.

It would be really good with some nuts or raisins, but I didn't have those. Also ice cream on top. Serve warm. Read More......
