Bread Pudding

Everyone seems to love my Sri Lankan style bread pudding.  I haven’t used any butter or cream, so it’s very healthy. I have packed it full of interesting ingredients (such as pistachio, chocolate chips and berries), so it’s extremely tasty!


INGREDIENTS 

6 slices of leftover bread (soaked in milk)

3 eggs (beaten)

1 1/2 cup milk

3 tbs sugar

150g mixed frozen berries

50g chocolate chips

50g raisins

2 tbs pistachio paste

1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tbs lemon zest

1 tbs lemon juice

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

METHOD 

Heat the oven to 180*. In a bowl mix the soaked bread and the other ingredients together. Transfer the mixture in to a ovenproof bowl and bake for about 20 25 minutes. Check it is cooked with a wooden skewer in middle – if it comes out clean, it’s cooked. Serve with vanilla ice cream, or as it is.
