What to Do with Old Bread?

I can remember my childhood days when my Nanay bakes bread pudding and my sister and I would eagerly wait for it to come out of the oven. It's my earliest memory of baking with my Nanay and my manang. 

Last week, I had several slices of bread in the fridge that I wasn't too keen on eating, neither is my little girl. So I thought of making it into a bread pudding with blueberries! 

  • 4 slices day-old bread
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (optional)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Soaking up

1. Cut up your bread into 1 inch pieces. Arrange in your gratin dishes. Sprinkle the blueberries around them. Preheat oven at 170 degrees Celsius.

2. In a bowl, mix milk, well-beaten egg, and honey. Add vanilla.

3. Pour the egg mixture into the bread pieces. Allow the bread to soak the liquid.

4. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the bread turns brown and all the liquid has been absorbed.

  8. Brilliant! I love bread pudding. We don't have fresh blueberries here so ours are made with raisins. If I want blueberries I have to use dried. :)
