Alhamdulillah, so far I have been having a good time organizing the 3 back-to-back posts. I am glad I have received some very good responses for the series as well. Since from last month, I have started the book review series too, I am planning to space out my series from the new year, InShaAllah. I may move the 3 back-to-back to becoming a bi-monthly series and making the book review a monthly one so that my books move in the shelves and don’t rot! 😉 Let’s see how it goes… I would love to keep my blogging journey as stress free as possible, so I have to make sure that I don’t fall into too many plans at the moment! 🙂
OK, so what do we have in store for this month? I guess when you saw the title of today’s post, you must have got a bit of an idea. Yes, it is 3 back-to-back microwave single serve treats! There are times when we crave for a treat, but don’t want to end up making a big batch and that is when this comes to play. I have already shared a lot of mug cakes, but this time I decided not to limit myself only to mug cakes. Surely, there is one coming up tomorrow, but today we start off with this simple bread pudding!
I love bread puddings but normally reserve making it for a big crowd since it is tough to make it small quantities. There is no turning back after I discovered this recipe. It is perfect for that sudden pangs of wanting to have some bread pudding. 😀 I topped it up with my favorite things – almonds and chocolate chips, but feel free to top it up with whatever you like – berries would be lovely! Even better, top it up with some ice cream… I love making this pudding as a lone breakfast. At times, HD and B are already gone by the time I wake up over the weekend, the kids are still sleeping, so much so that they wake up close to lunch time, so this is a breakfast that I go to. It has everything in it – bread, milk, eggs, little sugar, some nutty goodness and some chocolate to soothe! What more do you need to start the morning? 😉 Off to the recipe and how you stay glued for the next two, InShaAllah… 🙂
