Bake: Everybody’s Bread Pudding | December 6, 2011

Today my husband and I fasted in remembering 10 Muharram (Day of Asyurah)(for the Jews, they remember Moses and his troops crossed the red sea, for us Muslims, we remember Moses too and other great occurrences in our History).

So, to make it feel like a celebration, I’ve decided to make a bread pudding. Well, not just anybody’s bread pudding. It has fruit jam, peanut butter, Nutella, raisins, and chocolate chips. It’s for everybody! It’s great especially for kids and those young at heart. Heck, it’s for anybody, hungry or not. đŸ˜‰

I’ve to make a disclaimer here. The recipe is from Allrecipe, but after watching Nigella on tv sometime back, I followed her way of spreading not only jams on the breads, but peanut butter and Nutella as well.

In the pictures shown, I baked half the recipe.


6 slices day-old bread
2 tablespoons butter, melted
40 gm raisins
40 gm chocolate chips
4 eggs, beaten
475 ml milk
100 gm white sugar (you may want to reduce this amount because it’s already very sweet)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Bread Spreads:
Peanut Butter (Skippy’s Chunky)
Fruit Jam (St Dalfour’s Four Berries)

1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.

2. Cut the bread into triangular halves.

Spread jams, peanut butter and Nutella on the halved breads (both sides). (What I did was to divide the bread halves into 3 portions – so there would be 4 halves for each type of spread. Get a medium sized bowl or rectangular pan and place the bread halves alternately – jam, peanut butter, Nutella and so on.)

3. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. Sprinkle with raisins and chocolate chips.

4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture. Let it stand for about 5 minutes.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.


Oh the smell is so delicious although it looked a bit burnt. But that’s how I like it!

Please note that the original recipe serves 12, and this tastes great on its own or with vanilla sauce! Happy trying!
