Last week was my wedding anniversary, so I thought it would be fun to post a recipe for a single-serving dessert. A nice reminder of how the sweeter things in life can be enjoyed alone or with someone else. This recipe is inspired by my Grandma’s Bread Pudding recipe, but with the inclusion of dried blueberries as well as an extra layer of sugar on top.
Bread Pudding for One
1 slice buttered bread, cut into pieces
¼ cup dried blueberries
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2. In an oven-safe lightly greased baking dish, place one piece of buttered bread then add a layer of blueberries followed by the second piece of bread.
3. Mix the eggs, milk, and white sugar together with a ¼ teaspoon of the nutmeg then pour over layered toasts.
4. Bake for about 30 minutes then remove from oven briefly. Sprinkle the top with the brown sugar and ¼ teaspoon nutmeg then return to oven for 20 additional minutes or until silver knife is dry after testing pudding.
