This is my Mom’s recipe for Bread Pudding. We enjoyed this many an evening after dinner while I was growing up. Since then, I have made it many evenings myself. I have a tradition of baking this for the first time each year on the first cold night of Autumn. I can always be heard to say, sometime around this time of year, that “this is a bread pudding night”. We had one of these chilly nights last week, so I made my first bread pudding of the year, To be honest, not everyone in my family shares my enthusiasm for this dessert, but that just leaves more for those who do. If you like custards, you will enjoy this recipe. I really like custards ~ for the flavor as well as the simple, old-fashioned homemade classic that it is.
1 egg, beaten
1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 biscuits (or bread slices), torn into small pieces
Mix all ingredients and pour into greased square glass baking dish. Sprinkle nutmeg on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
I doubled the recipe for my family. It tends to flatten a bit after it comes out of the oven, but serves up nicely in bowls. Enjoy it the next cool Fall evening where you live!
