This was my first attempt at making "bread pudding". I really had no idea what to expect as I have never eaten it before either, but this blew my mind! It was like a chocolate almond croissant in a bowl! I wish all of you could have tried some, it was so tasty! Bread Pudding is super easy to make. I used coconut milk as an egg replacement, which gave it a lot of creaminess.
5 cups of stale baguette- cup into cubes 1 1/4 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk 1/4 cup maple syrup 2 tbsp tapioca starch 1 tsp cinnamon 2 tsp vanilla Pinch of salt 1/3 cup dark chocolate- roughly chopped 1/4 cup almonds-roughly chopped 2 tbsp vegan margarine 1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350
Using the butter grease 4 ramekins and sprinkle brown sugar on the bottom. Set aside.
In a shallow dish combine milk, syrup, cinnamon, starch, salt. Whisk it up. Add cubed bread and mix it up, make sure it's all coated. Add chocolate and almonds. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Press bread into ramekins, bake for 30 minutes Best if eaten warm.
