You are all aware of my cooking capabilities but I’m so excited to say that I came up with this yummy bread pudding with NO help from Alex! This recipe was used during our Chopped Date Night and can be easily tweaked to fit your needs. Here is what I started with:
- Cinnamon Raisin Bread (I’ve also used cranberry orange and it was gooood)
- 1 Egg
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 2 tbsp Milk
- Coffee Mug
- Cinnamon* optional
Cut the bread into cubes and put the pieces into your mugs. I had to use about three pieces to fill up my small Fiestaware cups.
Melt the butter and combine with the remaining ingredients. Evenly pour the mixture into the cups. The bread should look wet (ehh) but it should not be drenched.
If allowing your toddler to operate a hand grater, give him explicit directions knowing he will ignore all of them and pray he doesn’t grate his finger off. Then award yourself Parent of the Year.
I’m joking! Keller actually did awesome with the grater and managed to get some cinnamon into the cups. After that, pop those bad boys into the microwave for about 2 minutes, or 4 cranks on the snow globe.
Once the timer goes off, enjoy! I recommend stirring it all together before you eat it, just to make sure the top gets the good juices and the bottom gets some cinnamon. I’m not going to lie, I’m weirdly proud of myself and we have eaten bread pudding at least four times since that chopped date.
