In this kind of hot weather I hardly want to turn on my oven to bake anything. The hot oven will warm up the house as I tried so hard to keep it cool. Since the weather is much cooler today I thought I should bake something. I have some leftover cinnamon raisins bread in the fridge so I figured out making some bread pudding should be a good way to finish it up. I don't have any berries in my fridge so I add some bananas to it. Bread pudding can be whip up in a flash especially if you have surprise guests at your home. Bread pudding can be serve warm or cold by itself or with some cream and fresh fruits.
Some bananas at the bottom of ramekins
4 slices of bread
4 tbsp of sugar
3/4 cup of milk or half and half
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
zest of one orange
Cut bread into 1/2" cubes. Cut banana and arrange it on the bottom of ramekins. Put the cut bread in the ramekins. Mix eggs, sugar, milk, cinnamon and orange zest in a mixing bowl. Pour over bread and let it soak for half and hour. Bake in the pre-heated 325 degree F oven for approx. 35-40 min or until the custard is cooked.
