Easy Bread Pudding with Creme Anglaise
This is a comfortable food, as the website name tells us, so make this Bread Pudding with Creme Anglaise when you want something that fills your tummy and feels familiar and friendly. Bread Pudding is a dessert that grew out of the desire (and need) for housewives to be sure to use up any food in the kitchen and not to allow anything to be thrown out or go to waste. Today, bread pudding can be found in the most distinctive restaurants, where brioche, the queen of breads, has been prepared in previous days to form the basis for this great dessert.
Bread pudding has at least as many variations as bread itself. You can make it very simply and quickly with just any bread, eggs, some milk and a bit of sugar and cinnamon. Or, you can use specialty breads, such as brioche, which add a rich butter flavor and create a lovely crumb. Make it with cream and whole milk instead of two percent milk. Add canned fruit such as peaches and fruit cocktail (minus the cherries) for a richer flavor and texture. Spices such as vanilla, cinnamon, orange peel, nutmeg and cardamom are just some that you can find in this dish. Sometimes the dish has two or even three sauces. You can make a caramel sauce that goes on the bottom of each dish before you add the pudding, then spoon crème anglaise or Bavarian cream on top. A dab of rum-lemon glaze (served warm) can top those two sauces too, if you wish. So the recipe can quickly become quite complex, as you choose.
Bread Pudding is a fantastic dessert that every one should make and try at least once. Make is as simple or fancy as you like, but make it. You may find it becomes a specialty in the house that people beg for time and again that you make. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Comfortable Food.
