Anna Sultana's Mother's Day Brunch: Baked Bread Pudding

Time sure does fly.
We were just talking about Wills and Kate's first anniversary. 

Don't worry.
They're not expecting a gift.

But next week is Mother's Day.
And, yes, she IS expecting a gift.

A staple of comic strips and sit coms is the Mother's Day Brunch.
The kids cook up something awful.
And, of course, they make a huge mess.

Somebody thinks this is a laugh riot.
Somebody who's not a Mom.
Somebody who's not going to clean up the huge mess.

Okay... the kids remembered last year's shows.
They want to make a big breakfast for their Mom.
I know, if they were starving, they wouldn't wash an apple.
Now they think they're Martha Stewart.

You know better.

My Ma knew better, too.
The night before Mother's Day she'd prepare this.
We just had to take the prepared stuff out of the fridge. 
And put the pan in the oven.

Even we could handle that.

This is a great easy brunch dish.
To honor a great Mom.

                        Mother's Day Brunch: Baked Bread Pudding : Baked Bread Pudding: Baked Bread Pudding: Baked Bread Pudding

Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish

In the prepared pan overlap about 
12 slices of bread (Whatever you have.  Ma used old Italian bread.)

In a bowl, combine
5 eggs, beaten
2 1/12 Cups milk
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pour over the bread.

Sprinkle over the bread
2 Cups blueberries or apple slices

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning
Remove the pan from the refrigerator.
Remove the cover from the pan.
Preheat oven to 400º
Put the pan in the oven. 
Bake 40 minutes. 
Put a hot mat near the oven.
Remove the pan from the oven and put it on the hot mat.

Yes, leave a note telling the kids how to do this part.
Trust me.

Happy Mother's Day!!
