And I was doubly happy to find four vintage white Hall restaurant-ware oval bowls. A PERFECT flea find and PERFECT for a helping of that old stand by and easily made, bread pudding. Bread pudding just seems the PERFECT thing to have on a cold dreary wintry day after that bowl of home made soup. And in keeping with the theme of Time Travel Thursdays, I have upped the mode from an olden dessert to something modern with the addition of a swizzle of Rum Sauce, a sprinkle of chocolate chips and a dollop of whipped cream. The "new" old bowls were a happy addition to my already white kitchen wares. Love fun finds like this to Feather my Nest. :) I hope you will try this recipe. The PERFECT antidote to a cold gray day.
2 cups milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla (the real stuff...not fake)
(I also like to use a touch of butter nut flavoring too)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 -1/2 cups dried bread cubes (I used old sandwich bread)
mini chocolate chips
Beat eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Spread bread cubes in casserole dish. Pour egg mixture over bread and sprinkle with chips. Bake 325 for 40-45 minutes.
Fabulous for ice cream and just all kinds of things.
Makes 1 cup
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
3 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon rum extract
(I had no rum extract or rum liquor so I again used my butter nut flavoring)
In heavy sauce pan combine flour and sugar. Stir in milk. Cook over medium heat to bubbly boil stage, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter and flavoring.
Linking to these fabulous blog parties this week. Visit them for oodles of inspiration and pure PERFECTION.

See you later this week. I am off to have the last helping of bread pudding and there are some white sponges calling my name in a sink of dirty dishes. xoxo
