Old Fashioned Bread Pudding – USDA

Makes: 6 servings

This old-fashioned bread pudding can be made in the microwave, so you don’t need to turn on the oven. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 5 slices of white or wheat bread
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sugar, white or brown
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 eggs (or 1 egg + 2 egg whites)
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

directions

  1. Spread one side of bread with margarine or butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  2. Cut into 1 inch cubes.
  3. In a lightly sprayed saucepan, combine the bread, sugar and raisins. Then follow the microwave or oven method below.

Microwave method:

  1. In a bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt and vanilla. Pour liquid over bread mixture; mix lightly.
  2. Cover, microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes. Turn the dish 1/4 turn. Microwave on HIGH 3-5 minutes longer (pudding is done when edges are set and center is almost set).
  3. Let stand 10 minutes covered before serving. Serve hot or cold. Refrigerate leftovers.

Baking method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the eggs, 2 cups (instead of 1 1/4 cups for the microwave) the milk, the salt and the vanilla. Pour liquid over bread mixture; mix lightly.
  2. Bake uncovered for 1 hour (the pudding is done when a table knife inserted into the pudding comes out clean).
  3. Serve hot or cold. Refrigerate leftovers.
