Check out my other dessert recipes using bread.
Soak dry grapes or raisins in 1/4 cup of hot water. Chop the almonds or cashews into small pieces.Take the bread slices and cut into small cubes. I din’t remove the sides of bread.
In a wide bowl, take the boiled milk.Add sugar, butter, custard powder, vanilla essence, cinnamon powder and mix well without lumps.( You can add condensed milk in place of sugar but quantity may slightly vary as per taste) Check for sweetness and add more sugar if needed. You can boil the milk for a minute till it starts to thicken.I din’t boil it. I added the milk directly to the bread pieces.
Now take a baking pan ( I used silver foil box). Grease it with butter. Arrange half of the bread pieces as the first layer. Pour half of the milk all over the bread pieces. Press it & Immerse the bread pieces in the milk using a spatula. Now sprinkle the soaked dry grapes and chopped badam/almonds.
Again layer the remaining bread pieces and pour the remaining half of milk. Press it well & Immerse the bread pieces in the milk using a spatula and mash it. Top it with the remaining soaked dry grapes and chopped almonds. Lastly sprinkle 1tbsp of sugar.
Preheat the oven in convection mode at 180c. Keep the baking tray inside the oven and bake it for 30 – 40 minutes OR till the top of bread turns golden brown. Remove the tray and slice the portion of pudding.Serve it hot or warm as you wish.Enjoy !
Adjust the quantity of sugar as per your taste.
Baking time may slightly vary. Mine got done in 45 minutes. Bake till the crust changes to golden in color. Do not over bake, the bottom may get burnt. So keep an eye after 30 minutes.
If you boil the milk + custard mixture, 20 minutes of baking is sufficient. As I din’t boil the milk mixture, I baked it for more time.
