Breadpudding... is a very simple to bake. As a change, instead of using raisins, I used apple. Well honestly, I ran out of raisins and I still had many apples need to be eaten.
The recipe is very simple, you can eat it warm or cold. It was a success when I added with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of pudding slices, and my guests were satisfied.
Bread Pudding With Apple
200 gr old bread
1/4 ltr milk
100 gr sugar powder
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbsp kirsch (cherry water)
1 kg appels, sliced
50 gr butter, melted
1. Crumble the bread, then soak in milk. Put aside.
2. Beat up the eggs, add with cinnamon powder, kirsch and sugar.
3. Pour the egg mixture on the soaked bread.
4. Add with slices of apples and melted butter.
5. Bake in pre-heated oven on 200°C for about 40 minutes.
**Remember, this is a pudding, not a cake, so you'll find it a bit soft but quite firm to stand without the mould.

Woohooo... my very first foodie posting in 2011!!! I can't imagine that I've been around in blogger's world for quite a while now. My best wishes to you all who's been visiting, commenting and loving my blog(s).
I still love cooking, baking and making photo's, but there are some realities as well to be faced. We're in situation of economy crisis in Belgium,, ie. the price of gas & electricity go so high (too high), the price of gasoline is 30% up in 2 months time, and off course, not to mention the prices of (fresh)food go along with others, but the salary stays the same. Now we're trying to cut the expenses by lowing the use of electricity & car. So here I am with less cooking and baking, and also less going around with the car.
We're certain we'll pass this situation... we don't know when and how,, but we'll do our best. Stay positive & optimist!!!
Now story of baking. It's holiday for a week, time to entertain the children, especially my daughtern (6 y.o). She's a busy bee.. just like the mother.. so she needs to be kept occupied. This is then the result of our quality time, Banana Chocolate Waffles. Trust me, children love this soooo much!!!!
