Earlier this week it was my birthday! My Partner decided to make me a birthday cake - the first cake he has ever made. I wrote up detailed instructions, came down into the kitchen a couple times to say "No, you didn't ruin it, it's supposed to look like that.", and generally fretted. He spent most of the cooking time in one sort of panic or another, but the result was fantastic!
Making bread pudding out of leftover cake is super easy. I used my bread pudding recipe, but left out the sweeteners.
1/4 of a two layer cake, cut into cubes (frosting and all)
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
(if you use a frosting that is more sugary than my cream cheese frosting, you might want to scrape most of it off of the cake before you begin.)
Preheat the oven to 350*
Place the cubed cake into an 8" square cake pan.
Whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
Pour the egg mixture over the cake and press down with the back of a spoon so the cake is all moistened.
Bake in the preheated oven for 35 - 45 minutes, until the top is lightly browned and the center is set.
Spoon onto plates and enjoy!
