Bread Pudding

I included a picture of some bread pudding I made in my project 365 photos and I had people comment and email that they'd like the recipe, since I made it a healthier version, so here ya go:

6 slices of day old bread (I used Sara Lee's 100% multi-grain bread)
2 tbsp I Can't Believe It's Not Butter ~ squeeze
1 c. Egg beaters
2 c. Skim milk
3/4 c. Splenda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
Can add 1/2 c raisins (but I left these out)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

Tear bread into pieces into an 8" square baking pan. Drizzle the ICBINB over the berad and sprinkle with raisins if used.

In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, splenda, cinnamon & vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 min, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.


Now, in the picture I posted (which is also here to the left), you can see that I obviously did not use wheat or multi-grain bread. That's because I was out when I made that particular recipe, but the next time I made it I did use the multi-grain (45 cals per slice) bread, but forgot to take a picture of it...which explains the white bread picture.

This is the easiest recipe ever, which you know has to be true, because I didn't screw it up...and that's rare! If you're in the mood for some comfort food, try this recipeIt's really good! I promise, you won't regret it!

Sounds good. Have you ever had bread pudding with a vanilla sauce? I had it once and can't find a recipe for the sauce anywhere. Thanks for sharing!
