A simple, easy, steamed Caramel bread pudding with eggs, which can be prepared without an oven,in a pressure cooker or a steamer .
The last week just passed by in a haze with the kids’ exams, pick up and drop for the choir, drama, piano classes, a mid week Casino party, a high tea thrown at home and the rehearsals for the AGM. It’s that time of the year when the Navy wives welfare association (NWWA) has its Annual General Meeting and as committee members we have been working hard on our power point presentations to be presented on the D day.
The Foodie Monday Bloghop was the last thing on my mind with all these happening and I was going berserk going round and round trying to catch my own tail😅😅. And on top of that my hubby dear who was out flying in mid seas for the Malabar Exercise in the East Coast since the last one month decided to surface last Monday instead of the stipulated date. So at the last moment I excused myself from the Bloghop though my photos were ready but I wanted to spend some time with him and the kids together.
This Monday the theme being Steamed Recipes I decided to share with you all the very first Pudding recipe I learnt from my Mom in-law who is an Army wife and had taught me this super easy Bread Pudding which was very common in the armed forces circle during her days. This Caramel bread pudding is like a Caramel flan or a creamy Custard dessert, absolutely delicious with a melt in the mouth texture.
This simple dessert is made from stale bread, milk, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract, whisked together and steamed in a steamer or a pressure cooker with a caramel coat on top. How much simpler can this get..I ask you? We can call it Indian bread pudding and it is slightly different from the classic old fashioned English bread pudding . Garnish with some exotic fruits or nuts, serve it as a simple dessert for a dinner get together at home or a tea party, I assure you people are going to go ga ga over it. A small snacky dessert after school or play time for the kids and a lovely way to please them if you have lots of leftover bread sitting in the bread box. Enjoy the dainty, creamy, absolutely delicious, melt in the mouth, steamed caramel bread pudding.
Sending this simple Caramel Bread pudding to the 103 rd Foodie Monday Bloghop for the theme Steamed Recipes.
