    For years I've gone without bread pudding, one of my favorites, because my says she hates it. I've had it in restaurants and at friends' homes, but I've not made it at home. This morning I was making French toast and realized I'd made way too much custard. Undaunted I made the 6 slices of toast, ripped them into bite sized pieces and placed them in a small greased cake pan. Then I dumped the remaining custard liquid on top and baked at 350 for 45 minutes. When I presented her with this "French bread casserole" she absolutely loved it. Didn't have the heart to tell her.

    Basic recipe was

    4 eggs

    About 2 cups of milk

    2TB honey

    2 pinches fresh grated nutmeg

    Pinch salt

    Pinch ground clove

    Pinch of vanilla powder (or 1/2tsp vanilla extract)

    Make 6 to 8 pieces of French toast in the usual manner, then tear into pieces, dump on leftover custard and bake 45 minutes at 350˚

    For a glaze I used:

    1 cup powdered sugar

    2tsp milk

    1tsp lemon juice

    Mix until combined.

    It's also really good with maple syrup, obviously.
