Blueberry, Vanilla, and Bread Pudding

I had my first taste of blueberries today. We don't get blueberries around here - like ever, not because its winter. So, I'd bought a can of blueberries a couple of weeks back. Having heard about a friend gorging on wild berries in another part of the world, I just decided to bust open the can and have some. I was quite disappointed - the berries looked purple rather than blue, for one; and they were swimming in a sugar syrup and I just tasted sweetness rather than any real flavor from the berries. That's Rs 270 gone down the drain. I was so looking forward to making a spinach and blueberry salad later this week. So, the only sensible thing to do with these sugary babies is to make dessert and put the syrup to good use.

My blueberry and bread pudding turned out quite nice. Would be so much better had I had some fresh berries. But then again, if I had fresh berries, I wouldn't dream of cooking them.

Blueberry and Bread Pudding

Ingredients
  • 1 cup blueberries, extra for garnishing
  • 1 cup torn-up day-old bread
  • 1 teaspoon natural egg replacer (or one egg)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 teaspoons brown/cane sugar
  • 100 mils soy milk
  • 4-5 tablespoons of blueberry (sugar) syrup
To make:
Add a tablespoon of water to your egg replacer and mix well. Or as per instructions on your pack - basically, you want one whole egg.

To the soy milk, add the egg replacer mixture, along with the vanilla extract and two teaspoons of sugar. Heat this mixture on the stove for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. It will thicken up a bit and get a silky texture.

In another bowl, add the remaining two teaspoons of sugar along with 4-5 tablespoons of the blueberry syrup. Mix till the sugar is disolved.

Tear up your bread into chunks. Old bread works better than fresh ones...Alternately, you could also tear up some day old croissants. I usually get good ideas after I have already made the damn dish! ;-(

In a baking pan, pour your blueberry and sugar syrup mixture as your bottom layer. Then lay your bread pieces on top. Push the bread chunks down so they soak up most of the syrup.

Then layer the cup of blueberries on top of the bread.

Pour your milk and egg batter on top.

Sprinkle some more sugar on top and bake for 1 hour at 250 degree celcius or until brown on top. Let it cool for some time. I put mine in the refrigerator for a couple of hours - but I would imagine it would taste good hot or cold.

PS: Don't know if anyone noticed, but its because of foods like this that I have downgraded my raw-ness from 85% to 60% on my title bar. No point fooling myself.

Chef Dennis said...

When we moved form Texas to New Jersey we were in the middle of the blueberry capital of the world, blueberries were everywhere, even in our backyard. You don't know what your missing until you get to try fresh berries, or even frozen...
You did make good use of them though, your bread pudding looks oh so good with those berries!
hope your weekend is going well!

That looks yummy! Love blueberry, and the bread pudding idea sounds heavenly.

Cake Duchess said...

Your berries look gorgeous! What a wonderful bread pudding. I could eat bread pudding every day for breakfast:)

Hyosun Ro said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had posted your comment and responded, but accidentally deleted by clicking the wrong delete button in my gmail. Meant to delete the e-mail, but ended up deleting the comment. Sorry about that. But if you visit my kimchi fried rice post, you will see my answer to your question

Junia said...

this looks decadent! yum!!! :)

same with me, i started off as 100% raw and now i am more 60%! i'm more about health and what works well for my body, soo steaming some cruciferous veggies works better for me. a lot of my baked vegan goods though, i make for my friends + family, since it's still too much for me. hehe.

Raw_Girl said...

@ Evan - Sorry, i don't know how I forgot you in my Stylish Blog awards this morning. You have one heck of a blog. Will correct it pronto.

@Dennis - Yeah, I'm not judging...I love any berry and am sure to love blueberries when I get my hands on the real deal. Thanks for dropping by and hope your weekend is going great as well. :)

Hyosun Ro - No worries.

Junia - I've never reached 100% raw for more than 2-3 consecutive days. The lure of having bread or something hot is just too much. :)

Raw_Girl said...

Evan & Dennis - And its also funny how you and Dennis always drop by here on the exact same recipes...Great chefs think alike. :)

Tiffany said...

girlichef said...

mmmm, this sounds like a great use for your overly sweet berries. Very pretty =)
