Fairy Bread Pudding, Light & Delicious & so Easy to Prepare
We named this dessert after a fairy because it is so light on the tummy and it's also light in caloric content. Let's begin by looking at our ingredients.
Ingredients for this Low Fat Recipe
4 Cups of Cubed/Torn Bread (white, potato, whole wheat, French, Italian)
Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Next, mix all of the remaining ingredients together. Place in fridge for about 1/2 hour if desired to allow bread to soak in flavors.
Pour into baking dish and bake in a 350° oven for about 45 minutes - or until pudding looks 'set'. Enjoy cold or warm. Add a dollop of light whipped topping to bread pudding if desired.
Calorie content will vary depending upon the type of bread and other products used. To determine calorie and fat content, simply add up the calories in the ingredients used and divide by number of servings.
Almost All Fruits Work With This Recipe
If you feel daring - experiment with different varieties of fruit to make delicious, delectable bread puddings.
For example, apples can be added to the ingredient list above. Just make sure they are chopped into bite-sized pieces.
Or, omit the spices and the raisins and add peaches. Then again, cinnamon and peaches compliment one another so well!
Berries are another great ingredient option - as long as they are sweet rather than sour.
Some ingredient combinations keep well in the fridge and can be enjoyed cold OR heated until warm - taking care not to heat to a hot stage. This could make the bread very tough.
Health Notes About Sweeteners & Eggs
*If you don't have egg substitute or Splenda in your pantry or refrigerator, then feel free to make use of real eggs and sugar. The eggs will add about 280 calories to the recipe if they are of large size.
We recommend using the substitute because the eggs are mined with cholesterol - actually, the yolks. One yolk of a fresh egg exceeds the daily recommendation for cholesterol consumption, so proceed wisely.
The granulated sugar will add a lot more calories. One cup of sugar contains about 800 Kcals so one and one-half will contain about 1200 Kcals.
The sweetener amount can be reduced whether granulated or substitute is used in the recipe. Use Splenda that is sold in the large yellow bag; it will measure like granulated sugar.
