3 things to do with stale bread

NZ Lifestyle Block - - FARMHOUSE KITCHEN -

I DON’T par­tic­u­larly like us­ing bread that has been frozen for sand­wiches, but I do put any­thing that is go­ing stale into the freezer so I can process it later into bread­crumbs or make a stuff­ing mix. Left­over fruit bread is made into one of Dave’s favourite desserts.

Bread & but­ter pud­ding

In­gre­di­ents 4-6 slices fruit bread 4 eggs 2 cups milk 1 tsp cin­na­mon or nut­meg 1 tbsp brown sugar 1 tbsp but­ter method But­ter the bread and cut into match­box-size pieces. Lay them hap­haz­ardly into a deep oven dish. Beat the egg, milk and sugar un­til well blended, then pour very slowly over the bread, mak­ing sure that all the bread is soaked in it. Sprin­kle a lit­tle cin­na­mon or nut­meg over the top. Leave on the bench cov­ered for half an hour, then cook at 150°C for 30-35 min­utes un­til it is puffed up and golden brown. Serve with spoon­fuls of vanilla ice cream. De­li­cious!
