My baked  no-knead bread - recipe from King Arthur's Flour. I managed to get 2 long loaves from one recipe.  Besides eating it with our favourite cheese there is still leftovers and I realised now that you don't need throw away stale bread.  Go make some bread pudding....

This is a sweet bread pudding with blueberries and dried fruits.  Cut the bread into square pieces.  Grease the pan generously with butter and layer the bread around the pan to fit.  Top with some of my rum-soaked dried mixed fruits.  Pour over the egg custard mixture (eggs, egg yolks, whipping cream and sugar) and press down the bread to soak them evenly.   Dusted some cocoa powder over and cover and leave overnight in the fridge. 

Bake at 180C for around 20 minutes or till top is golden brown and the custard has set.  Top with more fresh blueberries after baking.  Best served warm with ice-cream! 

Then there is the savoury bread pudding with bacon and spinach. 
Method the same as above.  Saute the bacon, add the sliced onions and lastly the spinach (which I had blanched and squeeze dry).  Season the egg mixture with salt, pepper and mixed herbs.

Pour egg mixture over, press down evenly and leave overnight in the fridge. 

yummy lunch!

  2. This is the first time I heard of bread pudding with bacon and spinach. It sounds a bit like Greek food which I ate in United States long ago as a student. So yummy.
