Are you wondering where the Pink Pudding is?
I could have made it Pink, but decided that since it wasn't in the New Joy of Cooking Bread Pudding Recipe, I'd better not take a chance on messing up. I did that once already this week...messed up a recipe.
In fact, my MessedUp Recipe is the reason I made Bread Pudding. One of those if you happend to 'Get Lemons...Make Lemonade' deals!
Yep, I BAKED BREAD! This is my SECOND attempt. WhaLa! It really does look like Bread!
Let me give you a bit of background information on Me and Bread! I'm allergic to Wheat!
I've done without bread for several years!
It's been okay having corn tortilla sandwiches and making corn bread.
I've found several other flours I use for cooking and corn starch is a staple in my cupboard!
I've been to LAZY to MAKE BREAD...until NOW!
OMGosh, I thought this was going to be sooooo easy....even with the Gluten Free Flour Mix. That's another post..."I Made Flour"!
And you know if I'd had the right instructions for the first batch, it might have been better.
Anyway, the first batch baked waaaay to long and looked like ..... indescribable....I should have taken a picture. It tasted good! So I crumbled it up for the Bread Pudding!
Now, this was my first attempt at making bread pudding and since I started my New Joy of Cooking Challenge in January, I thought this would be a good time try out it's Bread Pudding Recipe. How hard could it be?
Not too hard and I had all the ingredients....until....I got to....
Bake at 350 degrees in a Water Bath aka Bain-Marie!
I don't often have to do research before baking!
Thankfully The New Joy had a reference with pictures for the Water Bath Baking Method!
It's pretty cool, Ya'll !!!

The Water Bath is the cook's principal means of managing heat during the cooking of custards. By baking a dish of custard in a larger pan of water, the cook partially insulates the custard from the oven's heat and thereby protects it from overcooking.
Notice the water level line and how much water was left after baking the bread pudding....
which I now know is a custard!
How was that Bread Pudding/Custard? I'm glad you asked!!!
It was Yummy!
I am Tickled Pink with BathBaking!
