Ratio to remember: 2 eggs per 1 cup milk/non dairy milk
Bread Pudding Master Recipe:
1 C milk/cream/buttermilk, non dairy milk (rice milk, almond milk, hemp milk etc.)
1/4 C (or more) sweetener (honey, maple syrup, agave, sugar etc.)
1/8 tea salt
1 tea vanilla extract
Pour over 3-4 C cubed bread (stale is fine, try whole wheat bread, challah, sourdough, baguette, bagels etc.) in a pan that holds the bread.
Optional: add your favorite add-ins. Examples: raisins, chocolate chips or chunks of chocolate, finely chopped nuts, cinnamon, berries, diced apples, etc.
Let the bread soak up the liquid and stir every couple minutes.
Bake at 350 for approx 25-35 minutes or until set- you want custardy at the bottom and slightly crispy/browned on top.
Serve as is, or with whipped cream, drizzle of honey/maple syrup, scoop of ice cream or fresh berries.
