    Rainbow*Bubbles's Note:

    Easy comfort food for one, simple, quick, cheap, vegan and healthy. Very versatile, can be adapted to taste. I came up with it when I felt a bit down at uni and wanted something comforting but healthy, and came up with this. Now I do it all the time, it's great as a snack, dessert or even for breakfast. I've even made it for my teenage brother who only eats junk food, it's a great way for him to get calcium and wholegrains.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 1


    ramekin ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 slice bread, torn up into small pieces (any type, dry bread works better than fresh, fruit bread's nice, I like malted bread best)
    • 3/4 cup milk (use as much or as little to taste, any type works, I use soya but you can use normal or flavoured et)
    • 1 tablespoon sugar or 1 tablespoon Splenda sugar substitute
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional, if using, omit the sugar or Splenda)
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional) or 1 teaspoon ginger (optional) or 1 teaspoon mixed spice, etc (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon raisins (optional) or 1 tablespoon sultanas (optional) or 1 tablespoon dried fruit, etc (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat grill to high.
    2. 2
      Put pieces of bread in a microwavable bowl/ramekin (about 200ml/1 cup).
    3. 3
      Sprinkle with sugar/Splenda/maple syrup and spices (if using).
    4. 4
      Pour over milk to taste (at least enough to cover the bread).
    5. 5
      Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until milk starts to bubble.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle with extra sugar if using, then either put ramekin straight under the grill, or transfer into a grillable bowl, then grill for 3-5 minutes depending on grill or how crunchy you want the top to be.
    7. 7
      Remove from grill and eat with a teaspoon. Make sure it's not too hot, sometimes the milk underneath the top is still boiling. I like it with a crunchy top and lots of milk underneath where the bread's totally disintegrated, you can try with more or less milk to get the consistency you want.
    8. 8
      If you don't have a microwave, you can bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, then grill. Or alternatively if you don't have a grill, it still tastes great eaten straight from the bowl after microwaving.

      I used a slice of whole wheat bread, soy milk, and sugar-free pancake syrup. (I wonder how chocolate syrup would translate here?!) I sprinkled cinnamon over it, and also used less milk -- about 1/2 cup -- but I still think it was too much... maybe it's because I'm not quite sure what the "grill" reference was about. I microwaved it, sprinkled it with Truvia, and then put it in the oven on broil. It was in there for at least half an hour, and it just never got crunchy. It was good, but it was more like soggy croutons in milk soup than anything else!! I would definitely use a lot less milk, in order to give it more of a bread pudding-like consistency. Made for Fall PAC '09. Thanks for posting.
