I can write a book and title it 1001 ways to use your flopped gluten-free bread and still have recipes left over to share for free. The art of gluten-free bread making is a touchy one and you can follow the same recipe you have followed the last three times with success and have it totally flop on you? why well I believe there must be little bread gnomes roaming the earth and some days they just choose you to torment. What ever the reason I have had more than my fair share of flopped breads.
Today however I was cutting my little cubes to make croutons that can either be used in salad or ground up for bread crumbs. It was a long day and I was tired and I wanted dessert so decided what if I put gf/df/sf butter on it then roast it with some cinnamon and sugar? Well as I was doing that I recalled a time where I saw someone make bread pudding on the tv show Chopped. interested I sat down and looked at recipes they all looked the same so I thought I would just slop something together. Slop I did because honestly I didn’t think I would like bread pudding and was doing this more out of curiosity than anything else. Never ate, never seen it, never baked it til tonight.
took what I assumed to be 4 cups of bread crumb made from what was a great loaf of bread last time I made it. (multi grain bread from http://maidinak.com/ ) and then in my little blender I put in three eggs, 1.5 cups of almond milk (unsweetened), tbsp of vanilla and just poured some cinnamon and sugar in. not much maybe 4 tbsp cinnamon (yes we love cinnamon) and 1/4 cup of sugar. thought of using xylitol but not a whizz at baking with this yet and well I am sure agave would work just as well. Baked it for about 45 minutes. you pour wet mixture over bread and cover well and then bake at 350.
Wasn’t bad, even my overly picky son ate about 4 spoonfuls. More out of curiosity on his part too. I thought it tasted like pumpkin pie stuffing personally.
A dish I would make again? maybe if I have another bread flop but it’s not my favorite in the world so bread crumbs would probably be better used in my house but I can now say I have made bread pudding!
