When I was young, the greatest sin in our house was to waste or throw FOOD away! "Ice Box" (Yes, I STILL say Ice Box!) Nights were my favorite...A little dab of this, small portion of that, re-constituted things. A veritable Poor Man's Buffet!

BREAD was never thrown out, it was made into cubes for stuffing, breadcrumbs OR, my absolute favorite, Bread Pudding!

What I have done to Bread Pudding would have my Grandmother looking for a switch and mentioning "One way trips to the woodshed!"

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa!!! I think the Devil made me! It's either that, or admit to abject laziness!

What follows is another in my EASY-EASY series...LOL

How to Make Dutch's EASY-EASY Bread Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. I use a small 2qt. crock pot for this...Mix everything right in the pot. Less dishes. Spray or grease the pot. I use Baker's Joy
  2. Put milk in pot, add Custard Powder and egg yolks, Whisk, whisk, whisk!
  3. Tear up bread or cube it, if you like. Submerge it in the Custard. There should be enough bread so that you don't see too much liquid.
  4. You can mix in things of your choosing if you like. Raisins, Banana slices,diced dry fruits, chopped nuts or any combination of them.
  5. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top and go take a nap. Turn to Low...Go take a nap! It'll be ready in 3 1/2hrs.
  6. Serve either warm or cold, with anything you like, such as Ice Cream, Cool Whip, Caramel Sundae Topping or as is!
  7. Note: I have seen comments that this Jello Cook&Serve Custard is hard to find in supermarkets. It's available on Amazon. You HAVE to buy a case of 24, but I use it in many things and that case is gone quickly.
  8. My apologies to the purists and of course, My Gran! LOL
