|stale bread and day-old muffins|
Got some three-day-old muffins from the local box-store? I got plans. This is cooking poor, eating rich. Get some milk, any dried fruit, raisins, cranberries, cherries are just dandy. Get 3 hen-berries please. I grabbed a nectarine and a bag of frozen cherries. Get some ground cinnamon and sugar. Butter. Yes, butter.
Here we go. Can you hear me? Am I shouting? We throw away more food than we consume. I can make a dessert from what most would call waste. You can too.
I got some sliced, stale, french bread, 'bout 6 slices
3-day old banana-chocolate muffins, broken into pieces
Dried fruit. 'bout 1/4 cup, use any, raisins, cherries, cranberries, prunes
cinnamon-sugar ( 1/4 cup sugar tossed with 1 TB cinnamon)
Gotta get your bread into big cubes. Smear with butter, place in a big bowl, toss with cinnamon-sugar

Anybody else got some stale muffins? Break those up with your hands. Add to the bowl.

Whisk away. Dump into your bowl of scrap bready pieces. Add a hand of dried fruit and walk away. Watch some Downton Abbey for like 2 hours. Let it all soak together.
|soakedy soak soak...laddity la|
Grab your widest casserole dish, smear the sides with butter, yes butter
Put all that stuff in it, bake off at 325 degrees until puffy, 'bout 45 minutes.
grab a bag of IQF cherries
add 1/4 cup of sugar
juice of same
pinch of cinnamon
in a small pot, bring to boil, stir and remove from heat.
Strain it all through. What? You don't have a wire-mesh strainer?
The pudding should be ready by now. Puffy. Let's plate up. Serve with a bit of the sauce.
I used a ring-form.
Cooking poor, eating rich.
Get your grub on.
