I love bread pudding only of late. It is easy to prepare and it is delicious top with vanilla ice cream. Great dessert for the family. I have no worries if I have left over homemade bread. I can always make these delectable pudding. If I want to add raisins/cranberries to the pudding, I will always soak the raisins or cranberries with rum first . It smells good...every time I bake this, the whole house will be filled with the cinnamon scent mmmm I love bread pudding simply for three reasons ...1. because it is easy to prepare and it doesn't need much washing up and not greasy and 2. it is delectable and great to serve this to the young and old and 3. my leftover homemade bread will be fully utilized :)
I like using Granny Smith apples simply because it gives the pudding the tangy-ness it needed. A slight tangy flavor to this sweet dessert and I can chomp down the whole bowl without batting an eyelid :) Evey bite of the rum infused raisins together with the vanilla ice cream is sheer happiness for me...heehee I am an alcoholic in inverted comas :p I need to replenish another bottle of rum soon !
love every bite of these delectable pudding
