This is a great dessert that can be assembled in minutes. Plan on making when using the oven for another recipe. Consider the variation that uses applesauce for variety. This recipe also works well in diabetic menus.
7 slices of whole-wheat bread, cut into cubes (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup seedless raisins
2 cups fat-free milk
3/4 cup egg substitute (equal to 3 eggs)
1/3 cup gradulated sugar or the equivalent in artificial sweetener
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
fat-free whipped topping (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bread cubes in an 8" x 8" pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix remaining ingredients, except whipped topping, and pour over bread cubes. Bake for 40 minutes or until a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping (optional).
Note: One serving is a good source of fiber.
Variation: Applesauce Bread Pudding-Reduce milk to 1 cup, and substitute 1 cup unsweetened applesauce for the raisins..
