Crispy, Chewy, Fluffy Bread Pudding

Crispy, Chewy, Fluffy Bread Pudding

This tastes like a restaurant dessert, but it's easy to make ♪ Delicious, served piping hot or chilled ♡

Ingredients: 2 servings

Bread of your choice (I used 2 slices of of 1.8 to 2 cm thickness)
2 slices
200~300 ml
Sugar (Granulated, light brown, white)
2 tablespoons
Vanilla Oil or Vanilla Essence
To taste
Your favorite fruit
As desired
Powdered sugar to finish
As desired


1. Assemble the ingredients.
2. Preheat oven to 220℃. Grease the baking dish with butter or margarine.
3. Beat the eggs and sugar together. It's easier if you use a fork!
4. Stir the milk into the beaten eggs. Add 1 or 2 drops of vanilla and mix. If using chocolate syrup or caramel syrup, mix it in at this point.
5. If using slices of loaf bread, cut into 6 pieces. For baguette or brioche, cut into large bite-sized pieces.
6. thaPour about 1/3 of the egg mixture in a shallow dish and soak both sides of the bread. (5~10 minutes for best results)
7. Arrange and layer the bread slices in the greased baking dish so the crusts face up.
8. Scatter fruits of your choice under and around the bread. This time, I used banana slices.
9. Pour the remaining egg mixture. ※For French toast, in Step 6, let the bread soak up all of the egg mixture.
10. Lower the temperature of the preheated oven to 200℃ and bake for 20~25 minutes.
11. This time, I put 2 tablespoons of chocolate sauce in 1/2 of the egg mixture and made half chocolate flavored. Be sure to soak the sides as well.
12. If you like, use coffee flavored milk or tea flavored milk. Instead of sugar, you can use caramel syrup, maple syrup, condensed milk, or honey.
13. This is the chocolate version made with chocolate syrup ♪
14. Sprinkle powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar after baking. This is the plain type with powdered sugar ♪
15. This time I used 1 egg and 140 ml of milk. For French Toast cooked in a frying pan, use 1 egg and 80-100 ml of milk.

Story Behind this Recipe
