Bread Pudding For A Rainy Day

September 27, 2010

It’s a rainy day, but a cozy one here. We’ve been so lucky to have such sunny weather lately, but I know we need the rain and I’m soaking it up while I can :)

Breakfast today was AWESOME!! A twist on toast + oatmeal cravings combined.

I cooked whipped banana Scottish oats per the usual proportions (1/3 cup of everything, half a banana) and added a handful of Apple Crunch bread cubes in the last minute or so of cooking. They plumped up into delicious bread pudding bites!! Will definitely be doing this again :)

Topped with BISCOFF SPREAD (!) from a little sample container I’ve been saving and a few salty almonds.

Oatmeal is back!

So is a KERF Classic – a Cali bowl promotion!

All of the new GREEN colored Cali bowls are half off for the next two days. Green is my favorite color (cause of my eyeballs) and I love the new shade and how it matches the infamous green Crate + Barrel spoon :mrgreen: All of the different sizes are available 50% off here:

It’s rainy and cold-looking outside which made me crave coffee this morning. My cravings sort of follow the weather/seasons, sort of like yours.

I have now officially moved from iced tea to hot tea – fall is here.

We are also getting rain in MA and as much as I hate it, I know we need it.

I love a warm bowl of oats on a cold morning – such a delicious way to start the day!

I think the entire east coast is gray and gloomy. Perfect for bowl of oats :)

Have a great day!

A few days ago I asked you about oatmeal and took your advice about the bananas! They really do make a huge difference! (I also got inspired by your oats page and bought a ton of yummy toppings like butterscotch chips!) just wanted to say thanks!

29 Cathy B. @ Bright Bakes September 27, 2010 at 10:17 am

so I’m not the only oddball! :) I often take a piece of whole wheat toast, give it a swirl of PB and some good jam, then put it in a bowl with a greek yogurt/soymilk mixture over top. Sprinkle the whole works with cinnamon and it tastes like some super moist french toast/bread pudding! Weird but for some reason good!

What a great idea! I love crumbling a muffin or some sweet bread in my oats.
Have a nice Monday :)

What a good idea! I love crumbling muffins and banana bread into my oatmeal, but never thought of bread for some reason. I bet it was incredible! Enjoy the rain. :)

Rainy and nasty here too! But a good day for some warm and comforting oats :)

33 Clare @ Fitting It All In September 27, 2010 at 10:48 am

I’ve been totally down on my usual Oatmeal combo lately too. I used to eat it EVERYDAY, but recently it’s been kinda blah to me! Maybe I’m not letting it cook long enough…or maybe I just LOVE overnight oats and PB&Banana toast too much!

34 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) September 27, 2010 at 10:59 am

I bet that did taste good! Looks like a great way to start a rainy Monday!

35 Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) September 27, 2010 at 11:11 am

It is the polar opposite of rainy here… 100* and sunny. Not complaining too much though, bc winter will be here before I know it. I just wish it was under 90*…

Oats + hot weather = over heated Mary lol. Maybe a siab is in order ??

Hi Kath,
While not searching for it, I found the Biscoff spread in a small bakery here in Quebec, Canada and OMG, this stuff is dangerous. Must hide this from my husband and 5y old… and from me!
Have a wonderful day!

37 Alyssa September 27, 2010 at 11:26 am

Sounds like a fantastic combo! I will have to give that a try with some of my GF Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread :-) Great Harvest woot woot!

38 AppGal September 27, 2010 at 11:48 am

Hey Kath! Random question for ya…I’ve been looking all over for a decent slow-cooker oatmeal recipe. Have you done oats in the slow-cooker before? If so, can you point me in the right direction? Any help would be awesome!

Reply

39 Kath September 27, 2010 at 3:32 pm

I have not ever used the slow cooker – sorry!

40 Jasmine @ Eat Move Write September 27, 2010 at 11:48 am

I love those green bowls!!! I have blue eyes, but I actually prefer green so I don’t blame you for it being your fav color. :)

I wish it was cold/rainy here today. It’s supposed to be in the 90s. I hate that. Boo. :(

Great idea adding the bread! I was craving oatmeal this morning, but I am out of both oats and bananas AND peanut butter! The horror! A trip to the grocery store later today is in order, obviously.

bread cubes sound delicious! cute cali bowls…

44 Sara September 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm

kath,
fyi: infamous and famous don’t mean the same thing. infamous has a negative connotation, means sort of like notorious, but in a bad way. so you don’t want to interchange the two.

This makes me laugh because it reminds me of my mom making the same mistake, when referring to a student in a work situation. Oops!

I actually do know that but I still use the word wrong all the time.

I do this all the time also! ha ha. Your “infamous” spoon must have a bad reputation.

48 Melissa @ HerGreenLife September 27, 2010 at 12:31 pm

We’ve actually been wanting to get more bowls for quite awhile now, so I went to the Cali Bowl website. Do they have a non-plastic option, like glass or ceramic? I know these are BPA-free, but I pretty much refuse to serve anything hot in any type of plastic. I like the bowl design and the company’s environmental statement, but I’ll hold out for a non-plastic bowl option.

Reply

49 Kath September 27, 2010 at 3:33 pm

They do actually have a ceramic bowl. I’m hoping to carry that soon.

50 Melissa @ HerGreenLife September 28, 2010 at 10:24 am

That’s good news. I guess I needed to look closer at their website :)

Hi Kath! Hope you are having a wonderful Monday, despite the weather. I was wondering if you’re still planning to run the 10K in Charlottesville this year. I’m always looking for new races and new running buddies :) ) Also, if you ever want to run some in DC let me know!

Yep, it’s cold and raining in the UK. Pretty misreable and grey actually, I don’t like it! Your oats look fab. :)

Ohh – that is such a good idea!! I am such a fan of bread pudding…

I looked at your oats bowl and said, that looks like biscoff spread. I can’t believe that I, who once hated PB/Nut Butters can tell the difference in spreads with a quick glance.

What an unusual but great idea with the bread cubes.

Now all you need is a healthy dose of real butter to make it bread ‘n’ butter oatmeal pudding! You know you want to…. ;)
