I've posted about desserts for two, my newest fun things to bake.. One of our faves is bread pudding for two.. Simple and good eats..
I need some wisdom from DC bakers.. I love custards and custardly desserts.. We really enjoy the simple recipe I use but... The finished product just seems to fall short in the custard department.. I think I may need help with proportions of the ingredients..
Here is the recipe I have been using:
Bread Pudding For Two
adapted from: Bread Pudding For Two Recipe | Taste of Home
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min.MAKES: 2 servings
1-1/2 cups day-old buttered bread cubes (2 slices)
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Divide bread between two greased 8-oz. baking dishes; set aside.
In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
Pour over bread. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool slightly. Serve warm. Yield: 2 servings.
Is the bread to custard ratio correct?? Any suggestions for tweaking to produce more custard??
