Finally: Bread Pudding

4 Apr

Ever notice that I never make dessert? I’m just not much of a dessert guy. I don’t know why. That being said, bread pudding is one of my favorites, and Bittman’s is dead simple. And really good.

Combine milk, butter, cinnamon, sugar, and a pinch of salt and warm in a saucepan just until the butter melts. Then this mixture gets poured over chunks of bread (I used some leftover, going stale no-knead bread), and the whole thing gets tossed with some chopped apple and raisins (I used dried cranberries, because that’s what I had on hand, and because they are generally superior). Beat eggs and mix into the bread mixture. Bittman tells you to bake this off in a water bath, but I skipped that part, and it came out fine. Better than fine: great! So good that I couldn’t wait to take a picture, hence the image you see of a half eaten bread pudding.
