Today, I have a wonderful recipe as well as a great way to finish any stale bread you may want to get rid with my Best Bread Pudding recipe. Not only does this dessert taste incredible, it also is loaded with protein from cottage cheese, eggs, and milk to make it even better.
To give a different flavor twist to this bread pudding, you can switch out your flavors of extracts. Lemon extract will add an interesting change with or without the cinnamon. Yet that extract is only one of many that you can play with to reinvent this.
Adding dried fruits is another yummy option. One-half cup of snipped dates or raisins is something you should try.
I am spoiled when it comes to bread and like to bake it from scratch. Seriously, it isn’t as hard as you may think. You just need the right recipe such as the one for my Easy Food Processor Bread that basically does all the hard work for you. If you never tried baking your own homemade bread, you will be shocked at how much more filling and delicious it is compared to those spongy commercial loaves of bread.
So the next time you have some bread you would like to use up, I do hope you will try my Best Bread Pudding recipe because it is truly delicious!
Make my delicious protein-packed bread pudding. This is a family favorite and also wonderful way to use any stale bread that you may have.
- 1-1/2 cups of cream-style cottage cheese
- 3/4 cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of melted margarine or canola oil
- 4 slices of bread cut into small cubes (2-1/2 cups)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Get out your blender or food processor and blend the cottage cheese, milk, eggs, sugar, melted margarine or oil, cinnamon, and vanilla together until smooth.
Lightly grease a 1-1/2 quart size casserole dish or baking pan . Add your bread cubes and stir in to moisten.
Let this stand for about 15 minutes; stir another time.
Set the pan in a larger one in your oven. Pour about an inch of boiling water along the sides of that larger pan to surround your pudding mixture.
Bake at 350-degree oven for about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Serve this warm or cold. Enjoy!
