The best Cinnamon walnut bread pudding

Bread pudding is one of those comfort foods, that we all love to dig in on nice lazy weekends. This recipe is neither too rich or heavy and takes not more than fifteen minutes to make, with ingredients almost always available at home.

Pull out a portion of thick bread and cut it into small cubes. Take a handful of raisins and chopped walnuts. Toss all this into an oven friendly bowl.

A cup of milk and a cup of fresh cream. 3 tablespoons of honey. A few drops of vanilla essence. Bring them to a near-boil in a pan. Turn off the heat. Pour this into the bowl, just enough to cover the surface of the bread. Dust some cinnamon powder and brown sugar on top. If you prefer it sweeter, add more sugar.

Place the bowl in the oven pre-heated to 200 deg c for about 20 minutes. Let the bowl cool while you take in all the lovely cinnamon aroma, and drool over the lovely brown crunchy crust. And then... when you dig in it's sweet n sticky and gooey.
