Kidproof cooking

I’m pretty lucky with Charlie when it comes to food ( and, well pretty much everything else, that kid is my life). She loves everything I give her, as long as it’s homemade – there’s the catch-.

So over the past 2 years I’ve improved my easy cooking skills, I know hundreds of easy, fast, tasty recipes by head and this one is one of our favs.

Breadpudding. Sounds gross, looks gross, tastes AMAZING. And it’s so so so easy.

You know how you’re always left with about half a loaf of bread that’s gone stale after three days? You can easily turn it into a treat for you and your little ones. All you need is :

  • 350 grams of stale bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 500 ml milk
  • 70 grams of brown sugar
  • 2 apples, we used Marlene Apples for the best taste
  • a teaspoon of vanilla
  • a teaspoon of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Shred the bread in small pieces in a big bowl. Use another bowl to whisk eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour mixture over the bread and stir, let the bread soak up the mixture and wait for a few minutes until no milk is left at the bottom of the bowl.

Cut the apples in small-ish pieces and add them to the bread-mixture. Mix it up a bit with a spoon and pour into a buttered cake pan.

Into the oven for 45 minutes and enjoy that smell -I usually add a little more cinnamon than needed just to make it more fragrant when it’s in the oven- . You can even add raisins, cranberries,…whatever to the mix and change it up every time. Apples are my must add for this recipe because it gives it that sweet kick that I love.
