almond milk bread pudding (dairy free)
makes 8 servings
• 1 baguette
• 2 1/2 cups almond milk
• 6 large eggs
• 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
cut or break bread up and put in containers.
mix eggs, sugar, and vanilla together in bowl.
Add almond milk and mix well.
Fill up dishes.
I normally put about a cup into each, but whatever fills up your dish is fine.
I also like to fill mine as high up as I can, but lots of people prefer less. So it's up to you really.
bake at 350 for about 30-25 minutes, or until the egg is cooked.
|as you can see, I used 7 eggs but it was too many in my opinion.|
|the first two cups of almond milk|
|you mixture should look something like this before you put it in the containers|
I first served mine with raspberries and dark chocolate shavings but found it wasn't chocolate-y enough for my tastes so then I did them with a whole square of chocolate as well as the berries and that was much better.
But, it'd be good with most things, most noteably whipped cream.
But seeing as these needed to be dairy free for me to be able to eat them, that was out of the question.
A sauce would have been nice to, like caramel, chocolate, or any kind of berry coulis.
If you're using regular milk, then I like to add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar since almond milk is fairly sweet. I also like to use half whole milk & half regular, I find the whole part adds a nice texture.
But almond milk is very runny and I had no problems, so I'd say it's up to you.
Also try adding more things too it before baking. Nuts, dried fruit, even chocolate chips would work.
