Every evening lately we've been lighting this candle.
And the smell of it makes you hungry for dessert. No faster way to gain weight but to have a candle that makes you want to eat.
The other night we didn't make a Brulee, but we did make a bread pudding.
Recipe: Pam spray a nice sized casserole pan. Cut a loaf of French bread into 1" squares and put it in there.
Mix together - 8 eggs
4 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sugar
Pour this mixture over the bread and then sprinkle about 1 c. coconut over it. Coconut makes it really good.
Set the pan in another pan that is filled with water to make a bath.
Bake at 315 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until set.
And then we make a vanilla sauce to pour over the top when it's done baking.
1/2 c. sugar
1/2c. brown sugar
1/2 c. whipping cream
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp vanilla
Combine all except the vanilla in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and comes to a full boil, 5-8 min. Stir in the vanilla. Serve over the warm pudding.
