Easy Bread Pudding

.

1 can (8-count) super large buttermilk biscuits (I like Pillsbury) or use pieces of leftover bread if you have that!

2 1/2 cups milk

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

pinch salt

1 teaspoon Mexican Vanilla (I carry this in my on-line BOUTIQUE)

1/2 cup golden raisins

.

Bake the biscuits according to the directions on the can…maybe a tiny bit UNDER-cooked…not too brown!  Cut the biscuits into tiny pieces and set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, stir together the milk, eggs, sugar, spices, vanilla and raisins…then add the biscuit pieces to the mixture.  Let the bread soak in this for about 30 minutes…mash the bread a little bit, but don’t break it up too much.  Bake in a greased casserole dish at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, or until a nice golden brown.  Let cool slightly and then pour your prepared glaze over the top.  Serve warm or cold..either way it’s DELICIOUS!

Orange Glaze

.

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 egg yolk

2 Tablespoons water

1/4 cup orange juice

.

In a medium-sized saucepan, mix together the butter, sugar, egg yolk and water and simmer over medium heat until thickened.  Add the orange juice and simmer for several more minutes.  Pour over the top of the BAKED bread pudding.

Bone Appetit!
