Old fashioned bread pudding

Bread pudding (also called bodding) is a Belgian and Dutch delicacy, made from bread scraps, raisins, eggs and sugar, probably originating from the Middle Ages.

It is a delicious dish that can be eaten for breakfast or lunch.
Also delicious with a cup of coffee or as a dessert.
I make it with just raisins, but it is also delicious with apple and walnut or red fruit...

  • 300 grams of stale bread
  • 200 grams of sugar
  • 2 dl milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 50 grams of raisins
  • 2 bags of vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

    Preparation method:

    Heat the milk until lukewarm and add the sugar. Keep stirring until all the sugar has dissolved. Pull the bread into small pieces.

    Place the bread in a large bowl and add the sweetened milk. Now let everything sit for at least 10 minutes.

    Stir the bowl to create a thick paste.

    Add the raisins, vanilla sugar, cinnamon and eggs to the mixture.

    Stir everything together well.

    Put everything in a greased baking tin (or oven dish) and bake in the preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 45 minutes.

    We eat the bread pudding warm in slices, but it is also delicious cold!
