Simple Pudding

Sometimes we end up with bread that is stale and not eatable anymore na. So make a pudding next time :)

This is what you need:

Bread.. fresh or old.. though old tastes better
1 egg
1/2 to 1 liter milk
Sugar, per taste
Nuts, as u like
1 packet of cream
some butter
a drop or two of food colour

.. and this is what you should do:

1- break the bread in pieces, toss in a form
2- sprinkle nuts on top



3- pour enough milk direct on top to soak the bread without creating a pond!
4- beat the egg with the sugar till it looks almost creamy, add some more milk to thin it out



5- pour it over the bread and pat down lightly with the back of a spoon or a flat knife



6- beat the cream with a little milk to make it thinner, add some food colouring if you want and pour that on top



7- cut up some butter in small pieces and place on top of the whole ensemble
8- bake for 5 -7 minutes in a hot oven, switch off the base and switch on just the grill



9- it should come out nice and crispy and golden brown on top and soft and creamy on the inside.



- this pudding does not taste eggy, like many do. It doesnt cost you much and the ingredients are such that one normally has them at home. You can of course omit the cream if you want, it will just taste better this way. Also, feel free to add vanilla essence if you want, I didnt. Enjoy :)
