Finding something to appease my sweet tooth can be a challenge. But I try.

A quick bread pudding that can help you finish old (sometimes a couple of weeks’ old) bread.

Five slices or half a baguette

1 cup milk

1 egg

few drops vanilla

a handful raisins/currants/dates

about 5 pellets /2 teaspoons artificial sweetner

1 tsp butter for coating and topping (optional)

anything for a crunchy topping – cornflakes, oats, flaxseed

* Break the bread (bite-size pieces) into the bowl you will be making the pudding in, which is coated with butter.

* Toss the raisins or any of the dried fruit with the bread.

*Dissolve the sweetner in the milk. If you are using pellets, grind them first. That will ensure that it dissolves uniformly.

* Warm the milk and then break the egg into it.

* Take it off the flame and mix it, else the egg will get scrambled.

* Pour this mixture in the bowl with the bread. Make sure all the bread is soaked with this custard.

* Bake it in a pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes.
