Mum's Bread Pudding

Hmm... Nothing much happening today. I've decided to try and finish studying Dr Kang's Physical Pharmacy notes. But of course, I cannot resist making something to eat for lunch. :)

I've been wanting to make some desserts, only there really aren't any useful equipments around in my unit. I particularly yearn for an oven. Then, I can bake cakes, make baked macaroni and cheese, bake cookies, bake puddings.

Just a few days ago, I had this sudden craving for my mum's bread pudding. It's the BEST among the best. :) And luckily, it is not baked, but steamed.

Mum's Bread Pudding
1 loaf of white bread (400g)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter at room temperature (I recommend Anchor)
2 eggs (whichever grade)
400g (1 medium can) evaporated milk
1 and 1/2 cups of raisins (or an enormously generous amount)

1. Shred the bread slices into smaller pieces. Toss as evenly as you can with sugar, and then butter.

2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and add the evaporated milk. Mix thoroughly.

3. Transfer the bread mixture into a cake pan. Pour the milk mixture over the bread.

4. Remember to press gently so that all the bread gets soaked.

5. Right after that, steam it for about 1/2 hour, or until it is cooked.

Ta-dah! You have the world's yummiest bread pudding. :9 It's soft and oh so rich! I just LOVE the buttery smell! Eat it while it's hot! Reheat (in toaster or microwave) when you want to eat it. :)

Sounds yummy, even though I am not quite a fan of bread. And hey, wanna go retail therapy one of these days? Call me out, can?
