Introduction: 5 Minute Bread Pudding for One
When you don't know what to do with those pesky end heels of your bread loaf - turn them into fluffy, custardy gold with this super quick and simple dessert!
Step 1: Tools / Ingredients
These ingredients are more suggestions, you can easily make substitutions to almost everything but the bread and eggs.
- a microwaveable coffee cup or bowl
- bread (stale ok!)
- 1 egg
- 1-3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons of yogurt or milk
- 1-2 tablespoons of butter / margarine
- 2 tablespoons applesauce
- 1 tsp vanilla
- dash of cinnamin
Step 2: Tear It Up!
Now tear up your inedible bread. I happened to have some "english muffin bread" from Trader Joe's, I think it really enhances the taste and texture since it's already kind of dense and spongy *Mmmmmmmm*
Put the pieces into the cup and set aside.
Step 3: Mix & Pour
Whisk together all remaining ingredients. If your butter is not soft enough yet, it's ok to melt it.
Pour the mixture on top of the bread. If needed, use a fork to help it along down into the crevices so it makes its way throughout the bread.
Step 4: Microwave, Set and Serve
Pop in the microwave for about 2 minutes. When it's done, let it cool for as long as you can stand it. Letting it set for a few minutes allows the flavor and texture to set in.
Once cooled to your liking, dig in and enjoy!
