Hope everyone enjoyed a nice weekend. Sunday night is upon us again, I’m still trying to get unpacked from our fun filled weekend in
My husband’s family makes a tradition to have a family reunion every other year on this weekend. Small towns are very interesting, they are fun for a weekend and then I find that it makes me so grateful to live in the city! Nothing against small towners, but it’s just not for me. I am so spoiled and grateful to have just about every store I need within a few miles from my house. I will say that we did have lots of fun, I posted a few pics of the highlights from our trip in the post below.
Ok, onto the bread pudding! This is a killer recipe. It’s another recipe that I worked on for that little project I was talking about earlier, that I will post about early this week. It is easy, and ridiculously tasty. The cinnamon swirl loaf, that I picked up from Walmart, makes for a perfect bread pudding, gooey and sweet. Baking it in muffin tins makes nice little individual servings, perfect for picking up with your fingers!
Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Swirl Bread Pudding with A Sweet Maple Drizzle
1 lb loaf Cinnamon Swirl Bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
½ Cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 1/3 Cups 1% low fat milk
3 large eggs
½ Cup sugar
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
Pinch of salt
½ Cup powdered sugar
2 ½ Tablespoons 1% low fat milk
1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place bread cubes and chocolate chips into a large mixing bowl. In a medium bowl whisk the milk, eggs, sugar, brown sugar and salt. Pour over bread cubes. Stir to combine.
2. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray and spoon bread pudding mixture evenly into muffin tins. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from center of pudding. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
3. In a medium bowl whisk together powdered sugar, milk and syrup until well combined. Drizzle over bread pudding and serve warm. Enjoy!
Have a great week! Coming up soon are some Bumbleberry Muffins that are sweet, soft and even pretty healthy, shocking I know! See you all soon!
