There's nothing better than the evil influences of friends ... ;-)

Thanks to shemhazai's weekend French toast adventures, I was struck with a craving for good ol' bread pudding (which I realized I hadn't made for ages). So on Monday night a loaf of Canadian heritage bread (a local-variety loaf that I'm particularly fond of) was purchased, shredded and left to dry out; last night five large eggs, about a cup of demara sugar, a generous dash of nutmeg, and about a litre of milk were mixed together and poured over the dry bread (I haven't used a recipe for bread puddings for many years ... I just pour/add until it seems right) ... the whole thing being popped into the oven once the bread had soaked up most of the milk/egg mixture. And the first bowlful sampled hot from the oven. With real maple syrup, of course. And lots left over to warm up for the next few nights. Easy, delicious, and full of good-for-you (provided you don't use white styrofoam bread).

I'll leave the divinely lethal banana bread version to the Joey Tomato's restaurant down the street because I can't imagine ever being able to match it. As described in their menu: "CHOCOLATE & BANANA BREAD PUDDING served warm with a whiskey butter sauce and vanilla bean ice cream."
