Caramel Bread Pudding

So, another day and another recipe found online to try… This time my mother found a recipe for a Caramel Bread Pudding which we thought we could try as the ingredients were readily available… This time we went for the exact recipe without any improvisations and the following pics show the result…

Heres the recipe…

Ingredients

  • White Bread: 6 slices
  • Custard Powder: 1/4 cup
  • Water: 1/4 cup
  • Milk: 2 cups
  • Sugar: 3/4 cups [To Taste]

Procedure

  1. Melt 1/4 cup sugar and cook it for about a couple minutes till it becomes golden brown coloured and transfer to the baking tray and spread it uniformly all over the bottom and keep aside…
  2. Take the bread slices and remove the crust… Then powder the bread using a blender…
  3. Mix the custard powder and water 1/4 cup each and ensure that no lumps remain…
  4. Heat the 2 cups of milk and bring to boil… Add 1/2 cup (or to taste) sugar and mix well…
  5. Add the custard mix to the milk and whisk it into the milk well… Continue cooking it till the whole mixture thickens, whisking continuously…
  6. Reduce the flame to low and add the powdered bread gradually mixing it into the custard well, little by little at a time… Ensure no lumps remain in the end…
  7. Transfer the mixture into the baking tray having caramel that was kept aside at step 1 and level the top…
  8. Cover the top with cooking foil and then steam it using a steamer for 30 minutes on medium flame…
  9. Take it out of the steamer and let it rest for at-least 2 hours with the foil cover intact, till it sets completely…
  10. Once its set, use a thin knife to scrape the sides of the tray and flip it over to a plate to remove it from the tray and its ready to be served either as it is or if you prefer, you can serve it chilled too… Works both ways if you ask me… 🙂

Overall, I felt that this is a nice option for a dessert that can be made at home without any difficulties… Please do try it and let me know in the comments below 🙂
