Feeling the weekend is not just by saying TGIF. A well worked weekend deserves a wonderful treat. Very often I am on the lookout for desserts which feel the same. Often we end up with fruit-based desserts. It was getting a bit monotonous.
Cold weekends and inspirations
It was a dull weekend with cloudy skies which was perfect for a cosy corner at the library. I love being in the library and we all have our little nooks in there. I have one right in the aisle which has so many cookbooks.
This time, as I was running my hand along the books, I found one for diabetics. Whenever I see a cookbook like this the first thing I turn to is the desserts. Coz it is a tough deal to hold the sweet craving and know well enough -How to create one without the glucose spikes?
I couldn’t resist borrowing the book to read it back at home and try out some of them. The first one that wanted to try is this bread pudding. I love the way the bread pudding turned out with arrowroot flour and the citrus feel of the silky custard. I really loved this book with just this one recipe.
Thank god… the sun is back and its Spring, but the love for this recipe continues.
If you are in Sydney and the cloudy weather bothers you with the wind gusts and cold rain showers check out the places where you can be.
This recipe is submitted to cooking from a cookbook challenge. This book was a perfect pick and I am looking forward to seeing more bloggers trying out this collection.
So long then, enjoy the spring and I am off to some garden tricks.
Try this recipe with hot cross buns in the place of bread.
