nutella lovers unite!

In light of today’s event and tonight’s recipe, I’m going to try and keep this as decadently simple a Nutella indulgence can ever be.

Two years ago, Ms. Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso declared this day, the 5th of January, World Nutella Day; a day to unite Nutella lovers all over the world to celebrate with a jar in one hand, and thousands of serving ideas in another.

A quick run to the supermarket to get me a jar of Nutella (they’re on sale today, what are the odds!), and a random mish-mash of what’s in the fridge later in the evening, saw the Nutella-lover in me rejoicing the day with a ramekin of comforting Nutella bread pudding.

Nutella Bread Pudding
(serves one, or two if you really wanna share)

2 slices of day-old bread
1 egg
1/2 cup soy milk
1/8 cup white sugar (basically 1/2 of the 1/4 cup)

  1. Preheat oven to 170C.
  2. Spread Nutella over a slice of bread, and sandwich it with the other slice. Cut the sandwich into small cubes.
  3. In a bowl, whisk egg, milk and sugar.
  4. Soak the bread cubes in the milk mixture.
  5. Pour the mixture into a greased ramekin.
  6. Go crazy and slather more Nutella on top.
  7. Bake at 170C for 20-25 mins. Leave to cool for about 5-10mins.

    Totally forgot about Nutella day, such a shame because I love, love, love it!
    At first glance I thought it was some sort of muffin but it turned out being a bread pudding. Delicious as well, especially the Nutella part πŸ˜‰
