The other morning we made one of my favorite breakfasts, Orange Scented french toast with Nutella. My daughter loves when I use cookie cutters to make this delicious breakfast, but we are always left with lots of crust scraps.
Sometimes I will use them to make bread crumbs, but I wanted to try something new. So I decided to whip up a simple bread pudding, and it was such a treat!
Simple Bread Pudding
About 6-7 slices of day-old bread
¼ cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp butter, softened
4 Tbsp Milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter an 8 inch baking dish. Tear bread into bite sized pieces and place into the buttered pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add the sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Then, slowly whisk in the melted butter.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread making sure each piece is covered with the mixture. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Make the vanilla glaze by mixing all of the ingredients in a bowl until well combined.
Eat the bread pudding warm and drizzle with the vanilla glaze.
