Simple bread pudding

Guess who decided to step in the kitchen to cook. Your truly :)

On 10th of Muharam we are encouraged to fast on d day called Asyura day.
"Puasa Asyura menjadi penebus dosa setahun yang telah lewat" (HR Muslim)
InsyaAllah. :)

So, for buka puasa on that day I decided to prep a simple dessert.

So here we go. My simple bread pudding (roti puding)

8 slices of bread - tear them and arrange on baking tray

Ingredients to whisk
1. 3 eggs
2. 4 tablespoon of castor sugar
3. 2 tablespoon of butter
4. 2 tablespoon of flour
5. 1 teaspoon of vanilla flavouring
6. 2 cups of milk

Whisk and pour generously on the bread prepared earlier. Add raisin on top depending on your liking.
 Leave for 10 mins.. I left mine for too long and the results were sloppy.

For the topping. You need to heat
1. A can of evaporated milk
2. 2 tablespoon of sugar
3. 2 tablespoon of custard flour
Stir until it thickens.

The results? Walla!

dearly departed

My mom lost her battle to cancer last September 2013. 
"To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return." (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:156)

The feeling is indescribable. 

Empty, that's for sure. 

"The kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in them belongs to Allah. He has power over all things. " (Surah Al-Ma'ida 5:120)

I'd miss her a lot especially on any public holiday/s like today. 
Salam Maal Hijrah 1435H.
