Good Ideas: Pound Cake Bread Pudding
This is a bit risqué. Pound Cake AND Bread Pudding. Perverse.
I know I am supposed to be posting detox salads, but I can't say no to cake or wine for more than 5 days, I have tried.
I am just trying to do my part to not waste food.
I made a big lemon pound cake and after day 4 it was a bit stale and dried out.
Instead of tossing it, I decided to cut it into cubes and soak it in a nice custard. Sort of like a cake revival.
The results were crazy. I am a big bread pudding fan, as you know, but this one takes the cake! (no pun intended!).
If you don't happen to have stale cake laying around (and really, who does?), I guess you could purchase a store bought pound cake.
Stale Pound Cake Bread Pudding:
I had about 5 slices of cake left out of a big bundt cake, so I would guess-timate (I like that word) about 3 cups of cake cubes.
Lay your cake pieces on the bottom of a buttered baking dish, fitting them in snuggly next to eachother.
Combine 4 eggs, 1 3/4 cups of milk and 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and whisk together. This will be the custard. (you may need a little more milk if you are using more cake).
Carefully pour the custard over the cake cubes and press down with a spatula to absorb the liquid.
Bake in a 350F oven for about 35 minutes. When ready to serve, cut into pieces and drizzle the warm cake pudding w/ heavy cream (as if the cake-turn-pudding didn't have enough fat & calories).
I am glad I could do my part to save a cake.
Thank you for the recipe.
Thanks so much for the recipe!
We have Entenmann's too...........I love it too. I grew up with their sour cream chip loaf.
They used to have an Entenmann's outlet store in NJ, but haven't seen one years.
I made this with half a four-layer cake I made for our Fourth of July that went stale in the fridge when we only ate half of it. It was frosted and filled, so I used skim milk in order not to add more fats. I also added a half-teaspoon mace and cinnamon to the egg mixture. It came out looking scary (because of the patriotic food coloring) but tasting fantastic! I'm going to freeze it in chunks to make it last.
I will add that all of this was with sucralose and/or powdered xylitol. I can't really tolerate sucrose so I don't use it in anything.
😂😂😂 I literally lol'd reading this. So hard in fact, I woke up my husband! I love your style!
