Crockpot Bread Pudding
5 eggs, beaten
3 1/2 cups milk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. (yes tbsp.) ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
6 cups plain bread crumbs (or more to make mixture as thick as cooked oatmeal
when mixed with all ingredients)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1 mashed or sliced banana (optional)
Mix all ingredients together until bread crumbs are thoroughly wet, and mixture
is smooth like thick oatmeal. Place mixture in a WELL greased
crockpot. Cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours, or until a knife stuck in middle of the
"pudding" comes out fairly clean.
NOTE: For the last 1/2 hour of cooking, lift the lid a "crack" by putting spoon
or fork between it and the pot, to let the excess moisture escape; otherwise you
will have a clear liquid all around the bread pudding.
Bread pudding should rise slightly like a cake while cooking, and be smooth on
top. It should be fairly solid when done, like a very moist chewy brownie, or
perhaps like a dense soufflé.
