Description

A highly adaptable recipe, this bread cake — a.k.a. bread pudding — is also a great way to use up day-old bread. Soaked in a mixture of milk, egg, sugar, flour and cocoa, pinenuts, raisins, amaretti cookies and cinnamon up the ante even further. Of course, you can add your favorite ingredients instead. Suggestions include chocolate chips; pecans, hazelnuts or walnuts; and dried cherries. The cake is baked in a springform pan until the custard is set but not dry.
