Lately I have been feeling a little homesick. I am originally from Mississippi and I haven’t lived there in over 10 years now. My husband is in the Navy, so we travel wherever the military needs us to go. When I start feeling a little down and out I try and make dishes that remind me of home, and something that I clearly remember from my childhood is bread pudding. Today I am going to show you how to make my Easy Bread Pudding recipe using frozen waffles from Aunt Jemima!
When I say this recipe is easy, I really mean it. You just need waffles, spices, milk and a few other ingredients and you are well on your way to a delicious breakfast or dessert that will make you want to slap yo mama… but don’t! Give her a big hug instead! ;)
- 8 Aunt Jemima frozen waffles
- 1¾ cups of milk. I used 2%
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- ¼ cup of melted butter
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
- ½ tablespoon of nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Let frozen waffles sit out a few minutes to partially thaw. Cube or rip them into pieces. The size is up to your preference. 1 waffle makes about 6-8. Place them in a baking dish and make sure they are laying as flat as possible.
- Wisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Pour mixture over the waffles. This mixture should mostly cover the waffles. If It doesn't push the waffles down with clean hands or wearing gloves.
- Place them in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown
- Let cool, garnish and enjoy!
The before and after is pretty awesome. LOVE how pretty they turned. Golden brown with speckles of cinnamon and nutmeg!
My husband went out for his morning run when I popped my Easy Bread Pudding in the oven, when he came back he commented on the scent of them baking a dozen times until he went to the oven himself and opened it. He doesn’t even have a huge sweet tooth like myself, so you KNOW they smelled great.
You can top off this Easy Bread Pudding with just about anything, depending on what time of day you want to enjoy it. For breakfast I would drizzle a little syrup over them, as pictured below. If you are enjoying them as an after dinner dessert, place a scoop of ice cream or whip cream on top.
SO yummy! I do encourage you to try it! The fact that I am using Aunt Jemima’s frozen waffles for this recipe is great. You probably already have them in your freezer and your kids know and recognize them, so they wont give you any push back on trying a “new” food.
Just about every time I walk into a Publix my son is pulling me to the breakfast aisle. That is where he has most of the say so in food. He loves that he picks out what he eats in the morning (within boundries) and it doesn’t have to be the same thing as us. Frozen waffles from Aunt Jemima are his go-to choices. They actually just added 4 waffles to their new resealable packaging. I love bags that zip back up because thing stay so much fresher longer.
