raisin bread pudding - after chicken noodle soup supper (for the second night)!

Raisin Bread Pudding

7 cups cubed cinnamon-raisin bread

1 large apple – peeled, cored, chopped

3 large eggs, beaten

2 cups milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Toss bread cubes and chopped apple well.  Pour into buttered (or sprayed) glass casserole.  Place casserole into a larger pan in order to add boiling water; this will need to bake in a water bath.

Whisk together sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside.  In mixing vessel, beat eggs and then add milk and vanilla; mix well.  Add sugar mixture and whisk well to dissolve sugar.

Pour milk/sugar mixture over bread cubes and cover casserole with foil.  Carefully fill roasting pan with boiling watger to halfway up casserole.

Bake for 40 minutes; uncover and bake for 8-10 additional minutes until the pudding is lightly browned and knife inserted in center shows center set.

Daffodil Lemon Sauce

In saucepan, mix 1/2 cup sugar, 4 tablespoons cornstarch, dash salt, dash nutmeg.

Gradually add 1 cup water

Cook and stir over low heat until thick and bubbly.  Stir a little hot mixture into 2 beaten egg yholks, stirring constantly so as to not cook the yolks.  Then pour all back into remaining sauce and stir for 1 minute.  Remove from flame and add 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons lemon juice.  Stir well.  Serve pudding and sauce warm.

Then:  enjoy! Hubby took his dish to the living room to watch a football game . . . or maybe it was a baseball game . . . or coverage of Congress  arguing/debating about the health bill . . . can’t recall.

Whatever it was, in between bites of the pudding (which he praised), he did a lot of hollering and fussing at the television set – or what he was watching on television.  But he proclaimed the pudding VERY GOOD.
