Well, I am not making lemonade - but as the saying goes when life hands you lemons make lemonade.
Saturday I tried a new homemade bread recipe...did not turn out as well as I wanted..too sweet and the cooking time was too long for my oven...bread turned out dense, a bit over cooked which resulted in a dry roll...we ate them with lunch...but they were not enjoyable.
I hated to toss them - so bread pudding is the answer. Leon does not care for bread pudding - but I love it.
I don't measure anything when making it - just throw some eggs, sugar, cinnamon and milk together - pour over the crumbled bread - let soak for awhile - bake until knife comes out clean - you know that routine.
When is came out of the oven I put a small amount of glaze type frosting on the top.
The result was so yummy...tasted like the center of a cinnamon roll...warm,gooey, sweet and then a bit of frosting made my mouth and taste buds yell with excitement.
Oh I should have taken some pictures - but everyone has seen bread pudding before...so that is not new...too bad I can not send the mouth watering flavor I experienced in this post.
I am on a mission to find the perfect bread recipe - one that is perfect for me to make - I am a good cook in cookies, pie dough, etc -in the past have not really tried to find a good recipe for homemade bread... but now I now think it is time to add bread making to my list of qualifications in being a good Wife, Mother and most of all Granny ~ I have a bread machine that makes fair bread...but I want more of a hands on method of making hot rolls...one that is airy and with a strong yeasty smell. Anyone, have a recipe that fits the description that you have tried and know that is works...please let me know.
Have a great week!
