Whole Wheat Bread Pudding



Thanks to Lavanya, for sharing the image and recipe. 

Recipe for bread:
  • 3 cups of whole wheat flour ( I used Annaporna atta)
  • 2 1/2 tsp of active yeast
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 2 cup warm water

Add all the dry ingredients and slowly start adding warm water. Mix and form the dough. Do not knead at this stage. The dough should be more like a poori dough. Knead it to activate the yeast.
Keep aside for about 20-30 mins till the dough double its size.
Knead the dough until its soft  in a gentle way . Place on the baking pan and bake at 230C for about 30mins.

Recipe for pudding :

  • Bread
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4  of sugar
  • 1 tsp of Apple spice mix
  • 1/4 cup of ghee (clarified butter)
  • hand full of raisins

In a small cake pan place the bread in such a way there is no gap. I  used half of the bread I baked for this pudding. Drizzle 1/8th of the sugar on the bread and some raisins. Generously brush the ghee all over the bread. Now mix the milk, eggs and apple spice mix well and pour over the the bread mix. Add the remaining raisins and sugar over the pan . Preheat the oven @  200 for  5mins. Now place the pan and bake @200C for 30mins. The top of the pudding should form a golden crust and inside of the pudding should not be soggy. Cool the pudding for 5mins before serving.
