before i start with the recipe, let me tell you this is not an eggless recipe. if you do include eggs in your diet then this recipe is for you.
i do not have eggs but the hubby does. i often make egg curries, egg masala, omlettes for the hubby and sometimes a baked dish like this bread and butter pudding.
this bread and butter pudding recipe is from my home science notes. it is way different than the other bread and butter pudding recipes. this is easy and simple to make and does not take much of your time. kids will like it too.
before proceeding to the recipe, let me write about the first giveaway on my blog.
my blog has completed three years. also, i was toying with the idea of giveaways or freebies as they call it. so i thought why not couple up the 3 years of blogging with a giveaway and give all my dear readers a chance to get a gift.
when i started my blog, i did not know that it would grow so much. i am amazed as to the leaps and bounds my website has taken and this is all because of you. its been a nice journey with 20-25 visitors coming to the site at the beginning and now approx 70,000 visits per month.
even though i don’t like to admit this, but my blog was not at all updated for almost a year due to my commitments to a project related with spirituality. my new year’s pledge this year has been to update the blog minimum at least twice a week.
i thank you all… my dear readers for being part of this journey with your compliments, suggestions, sharing and… an occasional rude comment

for now lets begin with the step by step process of making the bread butter pudding at home.
1: heat milk and sugar in a saucepan.
2: just heat so that all the sugar dissolves. since i used demerara sugar the milk had a nice light brown color. when all the sugar dissolves remove from fire.
3: add the bread slices to the hot milk.
4: add butter.
5: mash the bread slices in the milk with the help of a wooden spoon or fork. the butter will melt naturally in the hot milk. let this mixture cool.
6: once the mixture is cooled, add the beaten eggs, vanilla powder, grated nutmeg and chopped cashews to the mashed bread mixture.
7: mix the whole pudding mixture well.
8: pour in ramekins or a greased baking tin or individual serving baking cups and bake at 150 degree C for 30-35 minutes till an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
9: serve hot, warm or cold.
