Pandan Bread Pudding
Bread pudding is one of the best ways to reuse old bread.
- 2 cups milk warmed
- 2 tablespoons butter (1/4 stick)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 2 eggs beaten
- pinch of salt
- ½ loaf old sweet bread cubed. challah, brioche, etc. stale bread is preferred
- jackfruit strips
- coconut strings aka coconut sport string
Preheat oven to 350F.
Over low heat, whisk milk, butter, vanilla extract, sugar, salt, and eggs until uniform throughout over low heat. I’d recommend using an oven safe dish like an enameled cast iron to do mixing. You can just stick it in the oven when it is time to bake.
Cut your old bread into cubes and add to a oven safe baking dish
Pour the custard mixture over the cubed bread. Try to have as much bread submerged as possible.
Bake for 30 minutes
Remove from oven and add jackfruit and coconut strips. Bake for 10 more minutes or until custard is set.
