Wanting for something easy, delicious with some left over bread slices,, but steam cooked for few minutes?? u should have a look at this delicious pudding prepared simply with some left over bread slices soaked and smashed finely with milk and sugar, steam cooked in pressure cooker topped with home made caramel sauce...This fantastic pudding tastes marvellous when they are served chilled which suits incredibly for evening snacks..We just loved it, i have bookmarked this pudding dish at Poornima's Space quite a long back, this weekend i tried out this bread pudding with french baguette slices with milk, sugar and vanilla essence, usually puddings goes for either eggs or for geltain but this pudding goes for an eggless version and with simple ingredients.. Everyone at home loved it..Thanks a lot Poornima for sharing this fantastic pudding, my H relished each and every spoon of this pudding...U can see Poornima's Caramel Bread Pudding here..
15nos French Baguette slices
1tsp Vanilla essence
1/2cup Sugar (for making caramel)
Make small pieces of baguette and soak them in milk, smash completely the baguette slices, take care to mash everything well,add the sugar and vanilla essence and stir completely, keep aside..
Heat the sugar with 2tbsp of water, swirl the pan continously, once the sugar turns dark brown in colour, put off the stove..pour the caramel syrup to a flat vessel and coat completely the vessel..now pour the already prepared bread mixture and cover the vessel with an aluminium foil make small holes here and there just for the steam to escape, heat enough water in a pressure cooker..close the cooker with lid and steam cook for 20-25minutes..
Let the pudding cool completely, convert the pudding to a plate and arrange in fridge..Cut into pieces and serve!!
