This is another one of my bread pudding recipes. It’s easy, quick and seems just like a cake. So take your day-old stale bread and put it to some delicious use. This pudding is packed with lemon zest which gives it some amazing aroma and flavour. Your body will also be happy for all that vitamin C you’ll be having in the cold & flu season. Either way, even if you never get colds and never have leftover stale bread, it’s worth making this pudding for the delicious experience.
8 slices of day-old stale bread
3 Tbsp applesauce (oil if you have no applesauce)
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
zest of two lemons
optional: a drop of yellow food colouring
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
Cut crusts off your bread and discard them.
Chop the bread into small pieces and place in a greased baking dish.
In a bowl whisk eggs, applesauce, milk, sugar, zest and colouring if using.
Once well blended pour the mixture on the bread pieces.
Press the bread with a fork until every piece is submerged in the mixture.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
