how to make caramel bread pudding

making the caramel and bread pudding mixture

  1. chop 4 slices of sandwich bread into cubes. the smaller the better as then they can be easily mashed.
  2. in a pan, take 1.5 cups milk. add 4 tbsp sugar. then add 1 tsp corn starch.
  3. keep the pan on a low flame and stir so that the sugar dissolves.
  4. heat the milk on a low flame. no need to boil.
  5. once the milk has become hot, remove the pan from fire. add the bread cubes to the milk.
  6. mash very well with a masher or spatula. the bread crumbs need to be mashed finely. if not, then small pieces of bread will be felt in the pudding.
  7. add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and stir. keep this mashed bread and milk mixture aside.
  8. in another pan take 2 to 2.5 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp water. you can use any pan as long as the pudding mixture fits into it keeping about 1/2 to 1 inch space from the top.
  9. now place this pan on stove top and begin to melt the sugar.
  10. using a spoon stir this mixture while the sugar is melting.
  11. a stage will come when you will see lots of big bubbles in the sugar solution. keep on stirring so that the sugar does not start burning from the edges.
  12. then the solution will start turning brown.
  13. keep on stirring to get an even color and caramelization.
  14. when the color turns to a golden with small bubbles appearing, the caramel is ready.
  15. switch off and with the help of tongs or gloves, lift the pan and quickly start tilting & moving the pan, so that the caramel gets coated evenly on all sides. be careful as the caramel is very hot and the pan too. you have to be quick as once the caramel starts cooling, it sets.
  16. now in the pan, spoon the mashed bread and milk mixture.
  17. cover with an aluminium foil and poke holes with a tooth pick in the foil.
