Bread and Butter Pudding (Puding Roti)

bread and butter puddingSimple is usually the best way to prepare food. Don't you agree? Like bread and butter pudding. I just love them and I expect everybody would too only to find out that Michael do not. I really have to change my mentality that not everybody enjoy food. Some people eat because they just have to.

Back to bread and butter pudding. Since I love them, I have tried a few recipes and all of them are too elaborate for my taste. I realised that I don't like 'stuff' like raisins or nuts in them. I remember one time I made it with all the ingredients that you can think of and my friends love it but I didn't. Since then I scaled down the ingredients used in my bread pudding until I am satisfied with the taste. This reminds me of Gordon Ramsey's show The F Word. On 1 episode he and another guy had a showdown on bread and butter pudding. As usual his is very fancy shmancy while the other guy's is very simple and once they are done, were served to the customers 'in the dark'. The result? Well, the other guy's bread and butter pudding won hands down and Ramsey was shocked! I thought that was funny. hehehe.

Bread and Butter Pudding

6 slices of bread
3 eggs
1 3/4 - 2 cups milk
1 tbs vanilla extract
6-7 tbs sugar
3 tbs melted butter
Chocolate chips
Cinnamon powder

1. Butter baking dish or use cooking spray

2. Cubed 4 of the bread and lay them on the baking dish. Add chocolate chips on top.

3. In a bowl, whisk the egg, add milk and vanilla extract.

4. In another bowl, add sugar with butter. Butter the other 2 slices of bread with them and sprinkle with cinnamon powder. Cut into 4 pieces each. Set aside. (This is for the topping)

6. Combine the egg mix with butter and stir well. Pour them on top of the bread in the baking dish. Let it rest on room temperature for 30min.

7. Preheat oven to 325F.

8. Add the topping to the baking dish and bake for 1 hour.

*** I got the idea for the topping from here.***

Never had bread pudding before. Do you serve it with anything? Ice cream or whipped cream, perhaps? Fresh fruit?

Salt N Turmeric said...

Jun, i usually eat it on its own warm or chilled overnight. Sure you can add ice cream or whipped cream or fruit or all of the above on top if that's what you like. *wink*

Justin said...

this reminds me it's been way too long since I made a bread pudding. i guess i'm like you because I always put cinnamon and bread in mine.

ICook4Fun said...

Fuuny yea. Carlos pun tak suka bread pudding so I hardly make this. I am totally opposite. I like raisins in everything :) :)

Sometimes I hate checking your food blog before I go to bed (because it pops out on my Google Reader just now). Now I'll be obsessing over this and cannot sleep! That's a compliment, love. I love bread pudding!!! And knowing you made one without raisins and subbed it with chocolate chips... how come I never thought of that before? Huuuuargh!

Salt N Turmeric said...

I haven't made this recipe for ages and ages. It's such a comfort dessert and I love mine warm from the oven with some custard sauce. Simply delicious.

bigWOWO said...

I found this through Mama Nabi. Sweet blog! We love Malaysian food, so I think we'll try some of these. I also like Jamie Oliver's Dinners, which is mentioned in your sidebar.


PS: I know most comments probably relate to the recipes, but since I'm not that shy, I needed a public place to give props!

Salt N Turmeric said...

bigWOWO, is there a Msian restaurant near where you live? Do share what you have eaten so far. :)

SOHO Mama said...

Yummy I've never had puding roti with chocolate chips u, I pun kurang gemar yg ada raisins dan yg seangkatan dgn nya. I'd rather have the plain one, warm with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

I watched that Gordon Ramsay show too! Kelakar kan?

Cynthia said...

Pudding roti - I think I prefer that name :)

Maya said...

Pudding roti & chocolate chips memang best!

Salt N Turmeric said...

SohoMama, you tengok tht show part jugak? Kelakar tengok reaction GR kan? But he's very sporting and accepted defeat well. :)

Cynthia, haha. You also call bread, roti don't you? :)

Maya, memang best giler. Twice dah i buat and bagi kat my neighbour yg tak pernah makan but they loved it!
