The mini series: Baileys bread pudding

- 50 gram cold butter
This bread pudding is as easy as 1-2-3 so I had to share it with you. It takes about 30 minutes (that’s prep time and baking time) so if you are in a rush you can still make this. Just need to have these ingredients:
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 package vanilla powder
- 3 egg cakes (in Holland we call them “eierkoek”)
- a whole lot of Baileys liqueur
The round cakes were the “eierkoeken” and they were about 2-3 days old. Time to eat them before they go to waste. If you can't find these, about 4 slices of brioche bread would work as well.

Crack 2 eggs in a big bowl and add the vanilla sugar and the 2 tablespoons of regular sugar. Mix everything together till the sugar dissolves. Then add as much Baileys liqueur as you want, about ¼ of a cup should be enough and mix that with the eggs.
Then cut the cakes in little cubes. Remember they have to fit in a tiny mold.
Mix the cake cubes with the egg/Baileys mixture and let it soak for a little. Now peheat the oven on 180C degrees.

When the oven reaches the right temperature it is time to put the pudding in the molds. Add one or two little butter cubes on the top and you are ready to go.
Bake them for about 15-20 minutes till they are golden brown.
OMG they were to die for!
Nice and crunchy and with a hint of Baileys. They are so addictive you can’t stop eating them so make sure you make a double batch!

    I don't have any Baileys but I DO have a huge bottle of Amarula I could use (evil laugh)! In the words of Sally (after she met Harry), Yes! Yes! YES! ;-)

  2. Whahah Ruby you are so funny. I think Amarula will work out just fine.

  3. Baileys....now that is my kind of bread pudding. Looks irresistible.

  4. Looks simple and delicious. I think I have tried egg cake in Holland, delicious on its own

  5. Oh wow! These sound great!

    Oh, my....these look amazing! My daughter absolutely LOVES Baileys! When I visit her, I'm going to make this....GREAT recipe!

  7. Egg cake is indeed good on its own, but only the first 2 days. After that it just doesn't taste as fresh. Then you can make this dessert! It's worth the wait.

    Ann: if you daughter loves Baileys, she can dunk this pudding in a glass of Baileys as well, for some more flavor. Darn wish I came up with this earlier so I could try myself!

  8. Aha! Found your bread pudding recipe at last. Not sure why I didn't spot this on Google under 'bread pudding'... The round egg cakes look superb, and I'm so glad they didn't go to waste because you had the intelligence to turn them into something more delicious! Won't you join us by linking your post in the bread pudding of the month club? Here's the link: http://www.mission-food.com/2011/07/bread-pudding-roundup-june-2011.html.

  9. Oooh, what a fun bread pudding (love the addition of booze!). Thanks so much for submitting it to the Club :)

  10. You are welcome! Thank you foodiva for pointing out Victoria's blog. I've seen some great bread puddings there.

  11. Mini breadpuddings sound so good! I am going to Unique LA this weekend and I hope I get to try the mini bread puddings from Creme LA- They do ones with salted caramel and bacon topping. YUM! Have a great weekend Lilly!!

  12. I love these so much Lilly! They are so caramelized and crusty . Boozy, too. Naughty girl.

  13. You found the way to my heart.. bread pudding and booze :) These look amazing.

  14. This is different, I've never heard of an egg cake.

  15. You rarely see me drink any alcohol, but I have no problem cooking with it =) The more into this bread pudding the merrier hahaha.

    Sandra what I used is what we call "eierkoeken" in Holland. Translation is egg cookie, but since it is more a cake then a cookie I rather refer to it as egg cakes. It is mainly made with eggs and I haven’t seen it anywhere else then in Holland.


I’m curious by nature so please share whatever is on your mind.
