So I found myself in possession of slightly more energy than brainpower the other day and also needed something for potluck, preferably something that would dispose of some of the food-adjacent items I bought while high on nyquil that are still in my fridge. Here is the bread pudding recipe resulting, and it apparently tasted pretty good, because I managed to bring none of it back home.
– 4 eggs
– About half a can of condensed milk
– Some sugar, IDK, about a cup? I wasn’t paying much attention at this point.
– Half a loaf of bread torn into chunks
– Some spices, but you can skip this because:
– 2 cups of sugar
– 1/4-1/2 tsp of xanthan gum, probably don’t use a plastic fork to lift it out of the bag.
– Do about ten seconds of research for “bread pudding.” Reject all recipes as unimaginative and involving ingredients not in your kitchen.
– Preheat the oven. Mine turns on to 375* with the press of one button, so 375* it is. (Fahrenheit.)
– Beat the eggs, milk, and some sugar together in a bowl.
– Tear or cut up the bread into small chunks and douse them thoroughly in the egg/milk/sugar mixture.
– Pour into a baking dish.
– That really looks a little bland, surely we could do something involving that one recipe that said something about lemon sauce…
– Investigate fridge.
– 2 cups of sugar and the xanthan gum into the medium-sized pot and place on heat, stirring for a minute or two with said fork until the gum powder is distributed.
– Pour whatever looks like the right amount of lemonade into the pot and stir frequently, or in between tearing up chunks of bread because you don’t own a knife that will cut bread.
– Crank up the heat after a while since it seems like nothing is happening (continue stirring, though).
– When it looks nice and syrupy take it off the heat, add it to the pudding mix in the baking dish, and place in oven.
– Give it about….15-25 minutes, remove, and cool overnight, making sure to maintain proper aseptic technique when surreptitiously sampling the corners.
Still not sure what to do with the rest of the lemonade though.
