Just like most of the world we have our kids home for a LONG spring break so I'm getting creative with meals and trying to make things that we might not normally have in our regular routine! Keeping it exciting so they have something to look forward to when it comes to meal time.
This morning we had Bread Pudding with a vanilla creamy sauce and it was to die for delicious! I shared a photo to my social media & the demand for the recipe was high so I decided I should put this one here for y'all to make your families as well!
3 cups milk
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 TBSP. light brown packed sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
10 slices of French bread but into cubes (stale recommended)
1 cup raisins, craisins, walnuts, pecans (optional)
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cups light brown packed sugar
2 TBSP. butter
1 TBSP. flour
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 TBSP. vanilla
-Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 2qt baking dish
-Whisk together eggs, milk, white sugar, melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Gently stir in bread cubes and any of the optional ingredients. Transfer into baking dish.
-Bake 20 minutes. Cover with foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake until browned and set in the middle, about 10 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
-While bread pudding bakes, whisk together milk, brown sugar, egg, butter, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a spoon, about 6 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Pour over warm bread pudding and enjoy with your family.
I don't know about your children, but mine wake up "hangry" most mornings. Having a warm, healthy breakfast ready to go can completely set the tone of the day. This one is so easy to do, just literally dump it all in. The longest step to this recipes is cutting the apples up. EASY PEASY! As always an extra perk is that it smells GREAT!
2 apples, chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄3cup brown sugar
2 cups steel cut oats
4 cup water
1 pinch salt
Add: golden raisins
Dump everything into your crockpot and cook on warm overnight.
***If you want to cook them first thing in the morning & not have the crockpot on overnight, cook on high for 2 hours.
