Pudding anyone?

I never really was the pudding type of person. Sure, I love caramel pudding and corn pudding but I'm sure that's pretty much it. Well, if mommy's "bingka hijau" comes under pudding, then I guess that totals up to still, just 3.

But after browsing my fave online recipe website,, I couldn't help but to try a bread pudding recipe that so far, has gotten great reviews. Plus, who could resist making a dessert that only calls for bread, milk, egg and sugar? So I made myself one.

You know the outcome would be
sinfully yummy just by looking at the ingredients. And it sure was! I added some raisins and walnuts and some cream cheese on top ( which was not in the original recipe ) and I was really happy with the alterations I made. It tasted even better

You can check out the recipe here.

Like I said, you can be as creative as you want with this dessert. But I would recommend sticking to dry fruits like raisins or cherries. Add some nuts as well to give a little texture to the pudding. I also think it's better if the breads are cut into thumb-sized cubes. This will let the bread soak up the egg mixture better. And instead of pressing the bread firmly into the casserole, place it loose because after my 1st attempt making the pudding ( in which I pressed the bread in the casserole ) it came out a bit too mushed

And when adding dry fruits or nuts, sprinkle it on top because mixing them with the bread will only make them gather at the bottom of the casserole and you'll see non on the surface ( Again, I discovered this on my 1st attempt )

You can find out many tips and ideas from the review section of the recipe. Some cut the sugar in half and used brown sugar instead of white. Some used only 3 eggs instead of 4. When it comes to bread, some used French bread, and some used plain white loaves. Maybe I'm going to try using sweet buns the next time and cut down the sugar even more ( the original recipe gives you a rather sweet pudding )

I'm going to experiment a whole lot more with this recipe. Like I said, it's a pretty versatile recipe to work with. Want to make it healthy, cut down the sugar and use whole wheat bread. Want to make it rich and moist, use a little bit of heavy/light cream in the milk, or maybe even substitute the milk with evaporated milk, or full cream milk. The list of alterations you can make with this recipe can go on forever But if you like it simple, the original recipe works just great!

Let me know how you're pudding comes out. Try different bread, different milk, maybe soy milk or even sheep milk if you dare!

So now the list of puddings I love is no longer 3, but 4
