I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Fruity Bread Pudding

I finally have an exciting bread pudding recipe to share! Ok, maybe exciting is too much, but it's got a lot of flavour going on!


250g stale bread slices, heels and crusts
2 cups + 2 tbsps milk
1/2 cup mixed candied fruit and/or raisins
2 tbsps orange juice
zest of 1 orange
2 tbsps shredded coconut
14 or 15 pitted dates, chopped
1 tbsp jam or marmalade, any flavour
1  1/2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder
splash of vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1-2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 tbsp rum

Combine milk, orange juice, vanilla, rum and jam. Then combine the rest of the ingredients and mix together. 

Let the bread soak in the mixture for 30-60 minutes.

Grease an 8" baking dish and pour everything in.

Bake at 350 F for 45-55 minutes.

Serve plain, with a brown sugar sauce, with ice cream or with maple syrup like I did here.
