Pudim de Pão / Bread Pudding
I don’t know about you…But I just so happen to have lots of left over bread… so I’ll be making some bread pudding!! Very easy and yummy too
**You can absolutely adjust the ingredients depending on how much bread you have to use…
2 ¼ cups of whole milk
1 cup of granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
4 Portuguese bread rolls aka Papo Secos at least 2 days old
2 tablespoons of sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
Preheat oven at 350 F
Grease an oven proof baking dish (I used a 9×7 pyrex dish)
Cut the bread into large or big pieces… that’s up to you, and fill the baking dish to the very top…leave aside
In a medium bowl beat together the milk, sugar, vanilla and eggs until creamy.
Pour the creamy mixture slowly over the bread, making sure to stop in-between pours to allow the bread to absorb the liquid.
Once you pour all the mixture, let it rest for about 15 minutes. Also make sure to use your fingers and press down on the bread in ares where it looks a little dry so that the creamy mixture can be absorbed.
Last but not least, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the whole top of the bread and bake in oven fro 45-50 minutes.
Let it cool before serving… Enjoy!!!
