Planning to get rid of your stale loaf? Wait! Not after this recipe at least 🙂
This pud’s also a savior during those sunny, rainy or wintery days when you are overtaken by boredom and fancy dessert recipes are just not what you wanna do.
Cut, whisk, pour, bake. Easy peasy 🙂
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 50 – 60 mins
Serves: 10. Not if your guys go for seconds
250 gm stale bread or loaf, roughly cut into 2 cm cubes. I ain’t that dexterous, nor patient. So I prefer tearing
100 gm chocolate chips
500 ml milk
135 ml cream
50 gms granulated sugar
2 tps castor sugar – for sprinkling
1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease an ovenproof dish lightly with butter. Don’t worry if you forget greasing. I did 😛
2. Roughly mound the cut pieces of bread.
3. Toss in the chocolate chips so that they spread evenly among the bread cubes.
4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream and granulated sugar.
5. Pour this thick creamy mixture evenly over the bread and leave it to soak for 15-20 minutes
6. Sprinkle the castor sugar.
7. Leave it in the oven for 50-55 mins till you see it rising and the surface looks browned.
8. Sit the pudding for 10 mins before serving.
Now gobble and go bonkers. It’s one such crazily yummy pud, no 🙂
Warm welcome to BitesandPlaces!
My humble little blog has its own story to tell… my story… I’m gregarious being, vagabond at heart and have a monstrous appetite for food. I used to be a Human Resource professional until few years ago. To be among, with and for people was the reason I’d chosen this field.
Being in HR, I could only accomplish the ‘people’ part. I still yearned to be in those places I saw on TV and travel magazines and craved to eat all kinds of food that lulls you into coma. I didn’t want to be just a spectator anymore. I wanted to be in those pictures.
Luck smiled at me and I fell sick with an awful heart, lungs and liver disorder. Family said stay home. Rest.
Rest? Were they crazy? I grabbed this opportunity and quit my job; to pursue my passion – people, places and food.
Being on my own gave me lot of spare time for all the three.
I’m not a professional cook, but I’m mighty passionate about cooking. Although Indian, BitesandPlaces does not restrict itself to just the dishes of my country, which are toothsome beyond doubt. I’ve also tried to put together a bunch of mouth-watering and eye-pleasing recipes scattered from all parts the world. A lot of them are a tribute to my mum’s kitchen, the ones I grew up with. Few of them are a result of my experimentation and few others, borrowed from my generous friends 🙂
I religiously follow Andrew Zimmern’s favorite quote – what looks good to your eyes, EAT IT!! After all food is something that follows no boundaries, isn’t it.
Travel, I believe, is about exploring new places, meeting new people, building new relations, soaking in their culture, gorging on their cuisines, discovering their stories and of course, capturing all of these in my teeny-tiny camera.
After having been there and done that, I was inspired to share my travelogues with you, encourage you to travel and in some way find a bit of your happiness through me.
Thus BitesandPlaces was born!
Life’s a journey and people, places and food are all a part of it. So, come along with me and eat your way through this journey called Life…
I like staying connected. And it’ll be a frosting on my cake if you drop a line or two at firstname.lastname@example.org.
