The most underrated recipe I have in mind will always be the humble, classic Bread Pudding. Hence, presenting to you my comfort food of choice, a Berry Bread Pudding. This Berry Bread Pudding is warm, fluffy with a taste similar to custard. I flavoured mine with vanilla and cinnamon for that aroma, alongside berries for a punch of natural sweetness.

I am quite confident to say that Bread Puddings is a common kitchen food across different countries and cultures. This comes as no surprise especially since they are easily customisable and so easy to make. Furthermore, they can even be a good way to use up all that stale bread.

Due to it’s ease of making and versatility, I’ve even made it into two flavours within a single batch. The first flavour is the classic Raspberry Vanilla while the second is Blueberry Dark Chocolate. There wasn’t much additional effort needed on my end, just prepare the toppings! Furthermore, you can already imagine how easy it is to customise these Berry Bread Puddings. For instance, you can even consider the use of fruits such as kiwis and avocadoes.

Then, to the base ingredients including milk, butter and the choice of bread. I would say that any bread works here though I have a biased towards wholemeal bread for it’s better nutrition content. The choice of milk and butter is pretty much up to you, but I made sure to flavour mine with good quality vanilla. Furthermore, cinnamon will also serve as a useful ingredient for that earthy sweet aroma. If you are someone looking for an indulgent treat, consider making more base (milk / butter / egg mixture) for the bread to soak up all that goodness!

Without further ado, the recipe.
