French toast is definitely a favorite family breakfast, but there are few mornings (even Sundays) when I want to stand over the stove making piece by piece and worrying about keeping them warm in the oven so that we can all eat together.
With this recipe, I slice the bread, stir the ingredients together…stick it all in the oven at one time and we can all sit down to eat french toast together 🙂
I always seems to have odds and ends of bread around that I don't know what to do with…particularly after the weekend, when we usually have some leftover challah. This recipe is a little lighter than some others that I have found, because it has no eggs in it and uses milk instead of cream. Served warm, with or without vanilla ice cream, it is gushy smooshy and super satisfyingly yummy. It's not bad right out of the fridge for breakfast either 😉
Eggless Banana Blueberry Bread Pudding
3 cups milk
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar
1/2 stick unsalted butter
about 8 slices day old bread, cut into bite size pieces
I have always wanted to get into making bread. Something about the whole process from the first bubble volcano of yeast, to the mush and squoosh of the dough to the final mouth-watering smell that fills the whole apartment just makes me want to take it on.
And, of course, from my viewpoint as a New York Jew, challah is basically the be all and end all when it comes to bread. After trying out a whole bunch of recipes that didn't quite hit the mark, I finally found a recipe that I will actually incorporate into my repertoire on Hadassah Sabo Milner's blog In the Pink which came to her from fellow blogger Suzannah (Shoshana) Raff .
