Simple Chocolate Peanut Butter and Bread Pudding Slow Cooker Recipe – Serves 4 (medium portions) or 2 Adults and 2 Children
This is a fantastic recipe for the kids to have a go at. They can do much of the preparation, with some assistance, and get to enjoy the results of their handy work later in the day!
You will need:
6 Slices of White Bread – crusts removed and preferably slightly stale (if you have it)
2 x Eggs (I use free range)
3/4 Pint of Milk (I use semi-skimmed)
2 x Tablespoons of Caster Sugar
Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread (I use Nutella)
1. Spread the bread with the chocolate peanut butter and cut each crustless slice into 4 triangles (Top Tip – Remove crusts before spreading else it can get very messy!)
2. Layer the bread in the slow cooker as evenly as possible.
3. Whisk the eggs, milk and sugar together and pour over the bread – ensure mixture covers the bread by pressing down the bread if required.
4. Place lid on slow cooker and, turn heat setting to low and leave for 8 hours
5. Approx. 15-30 minutes before serving take lid of so excess moisture evaporates. As the pudding stands it will become more solid and easier to serve so feel free to turn setting to warm and leave a little longer.
Serve with fresh cold custard or vanilla ice cream
As always, if you require bigger portions or are cooking for a larger family then double quantities and use a large slow cooker.
