How to Cook Bread Pudding in a Bread Maker Recipe
How to Cook Bread Pudding in a Bread Maker
I experimented with making Brioche in my Breadman Bread Machine, trying to get the flour just right. I tried measuring, weighing by ounces and then weighing by grams. It was all still too heavy for me so I put the loaves in the freezer. Saving bread is a great way to have enough for homemade dressing, something I love, love, love!
Then, again, I love bread pudding also and looked for a recipe for making it in a breadmaker. I thought it would be easy to find a recipe on the Internet but all of them had instructions for baking in regular ovens. "Stop being lazy" I told myself and just go experiment. On the first try, the results were just perfect! I am amazed, actually, because it usually takes at least three efforts.
This recipe is best with a dense textured egg bread. Since I am more into flavor than sweetness, you may want to add a little more sugar to the recipe. Do the same with the spices.
- In a large measuring cup, combine eggs, sugar and spices:
- 3 Medium eggs
- 1/2 Cup sugar (or more to your taste)
- 3/4 Teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
- Beat the eggs and sugar together until smooth, then add the following:
- 1 1/2 Teasponns vanilla flavoring
- 1/8 Teaspoon lemon flavoring
- 1/4 Teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 stick butter, melted
Continue beating until smooth.
To the egg mixture, add enough milk to make 24 ounces total and then beating until all is mixed.
Cut the Brioche into small squares and place in a mixing bowl. Pour egg mixture over bread and allow to soak for at least 1 hour.
When the bread has taken up most of the liquid, Stir lightly to make sure the liquid has coated every piece. Place the bread into your Breadman Breadmaker pan. Use the "Bake" setting and time it for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Immediately remove from bread pan when the timer goes off and put it onto a place or suitable serving dish. Allow to cool a bit to serve warm.
It has a cripsy crust with a moist inside. It is just moist enough to slice without crumbling, great served with fresh berries and whipped cream.
