Fig and Bread Pudding

I had this bread pudding for breakfast and they were very nice right out of the oven... the smell was very awakening for the start of a weekend! I hope you guys also enjoy this comfy, healthy and delicious version of fig and bread pudding.


1 pkg (227g) dried figs
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
2 cups (2cm) firm white bread cubes (French bread is good)


1. Cover figs with water in saucepan; bring to boil. Remove from heat and let cool and cut figs into quarters.

2. Combine the egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg; mix well. Blend in milk and butter. Stir in bread cubes and figs; let stand 5 min.

3. Divide mixture into 4 greased (6 oz/175ml) custard cups. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg if desired. Set cups in baking dish and add hot water to come halfway up sides of cups.

4. Bake at 350F for 35 to 40 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm. Top with ice cream or fresh fruit if desired.
