Mocha Bread Pudding

The original recipe of this is just a regular bread pudding using white bread and milk. Since I have some leftover coffee bread that I baked a few days ago, I decided to tweak it a little into this.

Bread pudding is one of the simplest yet delicious dessert. I don't eat it with custard because I like the way it is.

For those who don't like too sweet a dessert, you can replace the white sugar with brown sugar or use slightly less than 3/4 cup sugar.

You can also add chocolate chips if you like or replace the chocolate milk with other flavoured milk like coffee milk.


Ingredients
6-10 slices day-old coffee bread
2 tablespoons butter/margarine, melted
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup chocolate milk
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 pcs tim tam, roughly chopped

Method
1. Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius
2. Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan
3. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread
4. Sprinkle with raisins and chopped tim tam
5. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk and sugar and beat until all are well mixed
6. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture
7. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped

Zurynee said...

Amrita, you can try checking out bakery stores. Alternatively, use chocolate bread and replace the choc milk with coffee milk. Meiji has the coffee flavoured milk.

Zu, how are you? I made your Mocha Bread Pudding today. Since I hv white bread, I went to Prime to buy the Meiji coffee flavoured milk & chocolate milk. I can't find Tim Tam biscuit so decided to replace with Oreo biscuits instead.
Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's very nice & not so sweet (I used brown sugar) unlike those I had made before. Thank you so much. Regards.
