Bread Pudding

| tags: recipes

My modification of a recipe from

  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 slices homemade sourdough bread, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup coconut

Heat milk 3.5 minutes in microwave until hot, but not boiling. In a bowl, combine eggs, sugar, and salt; stir well. Gradually add about 1/4 of the hot milk to the egg mixture and stir in. Add remaining milk, stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla.

Place bread cubes in 2 quart baking dish sprayed with PAM. Mix coconut with bread. Pour the milk mixture over bread. Sprinkle cinnamon over pudding mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 300° for about 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla sauce or other dessert sauce, if desired. Serves 6.
