This week I have stepped out of my comfort zone of cheesecakes and made a bread pudding with a vanilla cream sauce. Normally this would not be something I would even attempt to make in my house because one I do not like raisins and I always thought bread pudding was impossible to make and set just right. You always see on all those baking shows no ones bread pudding comes out. Kind of sends a fear to you when the professionals can’t even get it right. Or maybe I should stop watching those shows, no just kidding they are my favorite! My sister-in-law tried bread pudding once and fell in love. Since she knew I was embarking on this little independent baking project she asked if I would try to make one for her.
When I first started I accidentally added to much sugar so my mixture of the milk and stuff was way to sweet and I had to completely restart over. So here we go round two I used all the right amount of ingredients that was listed but I put it in the oven and forgot to set a timer. Oops, I over baked the second one. At this point I almost gave up, but I decided I was going to get it right and it was going to be great. Here we go round three, and you know that saying third time is the charm. Yep the saying was right! I used all the ingredients and measurements listed and cooked it for the right time and the bread pudding actually came out correctly. The last true test was the taste test. Well she tried it and feel in love. Guess stepping out of your comfort zone sometimes ends in failure but if you keep trying you will eventually get it right!
