Milky Bread Comfort Food

Recipe by RainbowBubbles
READY IN: 7mins


  • 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)
  • 34
    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
    1 teaspoon ginger (optional) or 1 teaspoon mixed spice, etc (optional)
  • 1
    1 tablespoon sultanas (optional) or 1 tablespoon dried fruit, etc (optional)
  • 1
    teaspoon sugar (optional)


  • Preheat grill to high.
  • Put pieces of bread in a microwavable bowl/ramekin (about 200ml/1 cup).
  • Sprinkle with sugar/Splenda/maple syrup and spices (if using).
  • Pour over milk to taste (at least enough to cover the bread).
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until milk starts to bubble.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
