I hope you're having a safe and warm day if you're in a cold area right now! Well helllooooo puddin'! No I don't mean your honey or your husband. :P
I made puddin' today! What did you think I was talking about? Hehe!
This morning I baked up some Apple Puddin' and it came out surprisingly better than I thought! The only that I would change is the sweet factor if you feel like having a rich breakfast. It wasn't too sweet so that's good in my opinion. You can pretty much adjust this recipe to your own liking and still have a wholesome breakfast.
Breakfast Apple Puddin'
1 bread slice in pieces (I used Ezekiel sesame)
1/2 C cubed apples
1/2 C almond milk
1 tsp cream cheese
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 TBSP pure maple syrup
some chopped pecans
First, lightly oil or spray a ramekin/baking bowl. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Set that aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, egg, maple, cream cheese, and spices. After that's finished, toss in the apple cubes and bread pieces into the wet ingredients. Evenly coat all the chunks and add in the pecans.
Finally, transfer the mixture into the baking bowl/ramekin and bake it for approximately 20 minutes. Then, turn it up to a broil for about 3 more minutes. Give or take that amount of time...
I say that broiling makes a large difference because it gives it a more solid and crunch factor, even though the inside is soft and moist!
Voila! You have an easy breakfast puddin' that serves 1. C'est tres delicieux!
Tips for modifications:
- You can either take out the apples and add in other fruits instead! Or DRY fruit mmmm....and raisins! *Note: Certain fruits will make this recipe more "runny" and watery, so adjust the liquids. :)
- Instead of cream cheese you can sub it with TOFUTTI instead.
- If you want to make it sweeter, sprinkle on some raw cane sugar or brown sugar on top! The possibilities are endless. :)
I also drizzled mine with some natural peanut butter and FAGE GREEK YOGURT.
If you try it out, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Grace & Peace,
