Bread Pudding

6 hotdog buns

Stick of butter, melted

3 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1-½ c sugar

2 c warm milk

¼ c or so raisins (optional)

Butter a 9x9 baking dish. Break up buns and place in dish. Pour melted butter over buns. Whisk together eggs, vanilla, sugar and milk. Pour over buns in pan. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or so.

Pete’s notes: I like bread pudding on the dry side, so leave it in oven until rather dark brown on top. Adding nuts is also optional.

I forgot to come back here after I made this........

I added some cinnamon and nutmeg, I remember Mom's had something in it........It was AMAZING!!  Wonderful consistency!!! 

Thanks, Pete, for the recipe!

Me, too, Cindy!  I couldn't believe that it wasn't mushy, which I cannot stand in a bread pudding.  Maybe all those preservatives, plus the buns being on the verge of being stale, kept the structure in the bread.   Laugh

Did this one today using walnuts and cranberries, with no spice.  We like it this way!

Oh, I need to make this again!  But I have no buns, so I will use some stale homemade bread……..check the consistency issue, just for science sake of course……

and I like the idea of cranberries.............

One of these days we need to measure more or less how much volume 6 hot dog buns have when they are torn to bits so converting to whatever other bread is handy is easier to figure out!  This time I probably didn't use quite enough bread.  Was using hamburger buns instead of hot dog buns, and 5 of them seems to completely fill the pan.  It came out a bit soggy, but still delcious.

I don't care much for walnuts, so would much have preferred pecans.  I did like having the bit of crunch in there, though.

I've never measured or weighed any of the ingredients when I've made a bread pudding.  I just use whatever stale bread I have  (usually at least half a loaf) and soak it in water for about half an hour, then drain it in a collander by squeezing it and breaking up the soaked bread....love the feel of it!  Then I add sugar to taste (suggest you try 3/4 cup to 1 cup), shredded suet, dried fruit (sultanas and currents), candid peel, flour and one or two eggs depending on how much mixture, and mix together well -  Untill it's a fairly stiff consistancy.   Pour into a greased tin of the appropriate size and cook at 350F for anything from half an hour to 1 hour dependant on size.  Really nice with (orange) marmalade spread over the top when it has started to crust over whilst baking.  This makes a dryer type bread pudding - can't stand the soggy stuff!

Hope that makes senseSurprised 

If it's got tyres or testicles it's trouble.

That sounds like something I could manage Rose, I hate the soggy stuff too and your method sounds much easier than some of the complicated recipes I've seen out there.  I always thought bread pudding should be a simple thing that was doable...  It's not something I ever had growing up you see, (it's not a common thing in the U.S. and really, it SHOULD be!)  ... I can't try it tonight, but tomorrow?  hmmmm....

I don't know where you grew up, but in Iowa bread pudding was a staple of almost anyone who had a cow. Used up a lot of milk and cream, and eggs. Also day old bread or left over donuts (if there were any left over donuts Yes.) My Mom also made her own raisins, so those were always included. On special occasions a rum sauce was poured over the whole pan. I think I had better make some bread and use up what I have left in a nice custardy bread pudding. Thanks for the urging. Doesn't take much.Hungry

It was usually a Sunday dish here as Sunday was bread making day for Mom and any bread that was left over from the week was made into bread pudding for Sunday dinner.  And Mom can't remember how she made it!  Alot of the great things she made so often when we were growing up, she quit making when we were gone from home and the details have left her.  So she really loves it when I find a recipe that tastes like hers and share with her -- and I've been finding quite a few here over the last 1 1/2 years!

LOL, I stand very corrected!  Laugh I should have known better than to blanket the whole country in my statement!  Of course that's a huge mistake and I apologize!

I grew up in N.E. Ohio, early years in town, then moved out to the country to finish my growing up with chickens and horses and goats and all that!  No one I knew then or know now had it much so I guess we missed out on a treat!

Wow!  Bread Pudding is pretty universal across the country, with regional variations.  Perhaps a bit more popular in the southern regions, but who knew there would be a place that just didn't have it at all!  And one of the best Bread Puddings I ever ate was in Ohio!!

I grew up in Ohio and I never had it either!  I had heard of it but never tasted it. I fell in love with it after I tasted it here in Missouri.   I love it with a warm caramel sauce poured over it. Where's the hotdog buns I am ready for bread pudding! Hungry

I forgot to say that I always mix it up with my hands - I think it's easier to 'feel' when the consistancy is 'just right' - whatever that is!  (I'm gonna leave some bread to go stale right now Laugh) Oh, I put raisins in it too - it was 1am when I wrote that out here......
