Bread Pudding With Vanilla Sauce

There were a few slices of leftover bread in the kitchen and i was craving for something sweet for breakfast. Then I remembered bread pudding, a sweet and lightly spiced dish which is also very easy to make. Bread pudding can be served with sweet sauces/ toppings such as a scoop of ice-cream, a dollop of whipped cream or simply dusted with icing sugar. As for me, since the dish was meant for breakfast, I chose to serve it alongside warm, creamy vanilla sauce. 


Bread pudding
3 slices bread, allow to stale overnight
1 tablespoon butter, soften
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Vanilla sauce 
2 tablespoon sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoon butter
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Bread Pudding
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (or 177 degrees C).

Spread butter on bread and cut the bread into cubes. Arrange the bread in a baking pan and sprinkle raisins all over.

In a bowl combine cinnamon and sugar, then add eggs, milk, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed and pour the mixture over bread. Gently press down the bread so that it is well soaked in the mixture.

Bake in oven for 45 minutes.

Vanilla sauce
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat and stir until the sauce thicken. 

To serve, pour over bread pudding.

Notes: Overcooking the sauce may produce lumpy texture.
