Lightened-up bread pudding

O.M.G. My variations below:

1 370ml can evaporated fat-free milk
1 egg
2 egg whites (I like an eggy custard)
6 slices stale white bread, torn into 1/2"~ish pieces
1/3 cup sugar - EDIT: I forgot! I used Demerara brown sugar instead of white! 
1/4 cup raisins - I pre-soaked my raisins in English Breakfast tea until they were plump
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg I had no nutmeg in the house
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon - I just used a few shakes as I'm not a huge cinnamon fan
1 tablespoon cold butter, cut in several pieces - I used teeny pinches and tried to distribute evenly in a grid-like pattern over the top of the mixture

I skipped the whipped cream for a topping and used a spoonful of Skinny Cow caramel type ice cream instead. Melty ice cream on top of hot bread pudding? OH~! So good!


Beat milk, egg, and egg white together in a large bowl. Add bread cubes, stir to moisten bread, and let stand 30 minutes. Do not drain.

Spray an 8- or 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Add sugar, raisins, and cinnamon to bread mixture, and stir to distribute spices. Pour into prepared pan and dot with pieces of cold butter. Bake 30 minutes in preheated oven.

While pudding is baking, watch HGTV and judge people's interior design decisions.

To serve, spoon out big chunks of delicious pudding. Make sure you pick at the crispy, buttery crusty bits because those are the best parts and are best when they're hot from the oven.

Srsly this bread pudding was amazingly good!

So it's day 3 of the new diet and I've had a headache since yesterday afternoon. I think it's my body's way of whinging about the lack of bacon and bagels in my life.

Yesterday's supper was 100 grams of raw spinach sauteed with 333 grams of extra lean ground beef, 200 grams of chopped onion, 6 grams of chopped garlic, and 52 grams of steamed yam. I seasoned it with coriander, paprika, and pepper and it was deliciouuuus!

Canadians!! Check out http://www.bulkbarn.ca is THE place to go if you want gluten-free or even some organic stuff for cheap! It's a bulk store so you can buy as much, or as little, as you please.

But I'm lacking good recipes that follow my new diet! I need gluten free! I need no pork or certain veggies! So I''m hunting for recipes and here are a few I came up with:

Fruit yogurt granola parfaits - Unf! Perfect for a weekend morning! I like to get half my starch for the day in at breakfast. I need that kickstart to my day. I'd probably pair this up with steamed egg whites so I have extra protein to make me feel satisfied until lunch time.

Spinach with pan-roasted red peppers - I have eaten more spinach in three days than I have in three months. I need more spinach recipes!

Gluten-free chocolate and pumpkin fondant - in French but babel fish is your friend.

Gluten-free, low-calorie, chocolate chip cookies - *gasp* - And another recipe with chocolate CHUNKS

Carrot curry soup

Gluten-free waffles!

Asian style chicken strips - gluten free I'm digging on the sassy marinade before it's breaded and fried.

Holy crap this looks like a fun recipe to cook - everything inna pumpkin!

Gluten-free fried chicken - uhnnnnnn and to brine the chicken first!

Ugh. I'm so addicted to www.tastespotting.com.

EDIT: P.F. Chang's imitation lettuce wraps - Uhnnnn! I have to say, my visit to P.F. Chang's when I was in Anaheim was a highlight of the trip! The food was AMAZING!

EDIT2: Flourless orange cake omgggggggg....

EDIT3: I'm seriously considering asking for meat grinder attachment for our Kitchenaid for my birthday. Make my own ground meat and sausages? Uhnnnf!
