Bread Pudding

This is a family favorite.  I like it because the kids help put it together the night before and it awaits in the fridge overnight.  In the morning, I pop it in the oven and do my usual stumbling-around-can’t-get-woke-up routine while breakfast is cooking.  This is the safest way for me to handle a hot breakfast.

Bread Pudding

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter 9” x13” baking dish.

In a medium pot, mix

4 cups milk

¾ cup honey

 

Stir over low heat, until honey dissolves and mixes with the milk.  Remove from heat, then add

2 tsp. vanilla

cinnamon to taste

5 eggs, beaten

 

In the prepared baking dish, throw in

8 cups dry, cubed bread (or not-so-dry hand-torn-by-the-kids bread)

 

Pour the egg/milk mixture over the bread.  Top off with

1 stick butter, melted 

 

Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes (in my convection oven).  Then uncover and bake another 6 minutes or so.

 

Notes:

I like to add sliced apples or peaches to this, but dh and the kids love it best “plain.”
