Easter is just around the corner. In fact I realized as I was shopping through Walmart that it really is only a week and a half away. I have a lot to do between now and then. I need to find the kids some Easter clothes, plan their Easter baskets, and make a lot of Easter eggs! I want it to be special because it will be Caroline’s first Easter.
One thing I do have planed already is to make some bread pudding for brunch. It is the perfect accompaniment to a brunch as it has all the flavors of french toast. If you have never made it before, it is really simple… well, at least the way I make it!
I found this recipe online a while back, and it has become a great breakfast or dessert go to ever since.
- Day old bread
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cube enough bread to fill a 8 inch square baking pan, I actually used a circle baking dish because I didn't have a square one on hand. Pour melted butter over bread. If desired and sprinkle with raisins.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push bread down to be sure that the bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
Caution… if you are making this when you are very tired, be sure you don’t substitute cumin for the cinnamon (I may or may not know from experience that this is disgusting)!
For my bread pudding, I love Ecce Panis bread. I have used them several times in recipes or just for the perfect accompaniment to our family dinners. Right now you can print a coupon for Ecce Panis to utilize at your local Walmart store. I love the bake at home varieties because it smells and tastes homemade! It couldn’t be any easier.
My son and I stopped by Walmart on the way home from school earlier this week to pick up the few ingredients that we needed to make the bread pudding. You can see and read all about my shopping experience at Walmart by clicking my shopping cart photo below!
