Bread Pudding

3 Sep

This recipe comes from a great cookbook called Vegan Cooking for Everyone by Leah Leneman.  It’s a tasty, warming, and filling dessert that’s a little sweet too.

  • Vegan margarine as required
  • 5-6 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1/2 cup raisins (I omitted these but I’ll give it a try next time)
  • 1/6 – 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons soy flour (I used whole wheat flour instead)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-1/2 cups soy milk
  • Grated nutmeg as required
  1. Spread margarine on the bread slices and cut them into strips.
  2. Layer the bread slices with the raisins and sugar in an ovenproof dish.
  3. Place the water, flour, and baking powder in a bowl and beat together with a fork.
  4. Heat the soy milk in a saucepan, and remove from the heat before it boils.  Beat the flour mixture into the heated milk.
  5. Pour the milk and flour mixture over the bread and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.  Leave to soak for 20-30 minutes.
  6. Bake the bread pudding at 350 degrees for about half an hour.  Or, cover with wax paper and microwave for 12 minutes.  (I baked it in the oven, I just don’t believe food tastes as well when microwaved.)
