Perhaps you think I’ve gone completely mad by suggesting a low carb bread pudding recipe? I have to say it isn’t something that I thought I would ever be eating on a low carb diet, either! However I was recently given the opportunity to try Love the Taste Bread by Thin Slim Foods. They have several flavors: Plain, Honey, Cinnamon, Everything and Rye, and I chose cinnamon!
The bread is very good – lightly toasted, lashings of butter – perfect! And at only 1g net carb per slice – I’m completely sold!
But as much as I like eating it the “normal” way, the slight sweetness of it made me think of bread pudding (or bread and butter pudding, if you prefer). So I came up with this recipe that needs just SIX ingredients and I just know that you’re going to love it!
Cut the bread into cubes and place them in a bowl. Bring unsweetened almond milk (vanilla flavor works well!) almost to the boil, reduce the heat and add butter. Stir until the butter has melted. Pour the milk mixture over the bread – you’ll get an instant cinnamon aroma! Leave the bread to soak for ten minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix together eggs and low carb sweetener (if you include sugar alcohols in your carb counting, use Splenda. If not, use xylitol or Swerve). Pour the egg mixture over the bread, and add some low carb chocolate chips – I use these mini ones from Lily’s. Pour everything into a butter-greased baking dish, and push down the bread so that it is in the liquid as much as possible.
Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the egg mixture has set. Let cool for five minutes, then serve.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
