My name is Lanie, a culinary student at Lackawanna College Lake Region Center in Hawley, PA with a passion for cooking. I might be a baker by heart but I'll cook a hot meal any day.
Hey readers, I hope all of you have had a wonderful holiday season and are ready to start the new year! For the next couple of posts I'm going to be doing simple dishes. Now when I say simple, I mean dishes that the busy mom, and thrifty college student can do, kids can help out too! They're also super fast and the ingredients are easy to come by.
The first one is a simple bread pudding. Paired with some vanilla ice cream, it's a dessert that you really can't get enough of!
1 Loaf of any egg based bread (French Toasting, Challah, ect)
2 T Melted Butter
2 C Milk
3/4 C Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 C Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the bread into medium sized cubes and place in a deep dish pan.
Spread melted butter over bread and let it soak in.
Beat the eggs together, then add in all other ingredients excluding the chocolate chips.
When the ingredients are completely mixed together, pour over the bread (the kids can help with this part)
Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and place into oven (this part too!)
Now the hardest part, waiting for it to bake! It should take 45 mins to 1 hr till its complelety done.
Serve and enjoy!
Now you can modify this recipe any way you'd like. You can add walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries, anything. Because after all, your the chef!
