Like most Americans, I have the bad habit of spending more than I should and giving in to the occasional impulse buy. My preferred method of worshiping American consumerism is at the altar of Amazon Prime. I don't have to leave my apartment, I don't have to drive anywhere, and it knows what I want before I want it.
A little while ago I'd been strongly considering buying a set of ramekins. You see, i had a bit of a problem. I've been trying to be a little more conscientious of my food choices. I want to get in shape, and all of the cookies I was baking weren't helping much. Ramekins would offer a fix for that problem. I could still cook some delicious desserts and have portion control enforced upon me by a limited amount of finished product.
I'd been thinking about those ramekins for a while, but hadn't done any research on things like pricing. So there was no Google, or Amazon search history to say that I was interested. Just a general purchase history of baking supplies and these thoughts in the back of my head.
That's when Amazon Prime gave me a message from American Capitalism. A message appeared in my inbox "Ramekins, up to 65% off" surely this was a sign. So I bought some ramekins and now I'm cooking in them. So you all should get used to a lot of ramekin recipes.
This is a dessert that makes an appearance in the traditional cuisines of a lot of countries. It is the answer to the question: "What should I do with this stale bread?" Is your bread dried out? Butter it up, tear it into pieces, and turn it into bread pudding.
You don't have to use stale bread. I personally use a loaf of bread that I've stored in the fridge. I don't use bread very much and it stays fresh longer in the fridge.
You can tweak this recipe in any number of ways, add butterscotch, chocolate, raspberries, etc. It's a very versatile recipe.
