Comfort food.

I was tagged by Jill to post about my favourite comfort food. My three picks are oatmeal, rice pudding and apple,almond bread pudding.

Apple Almond bread Pudding 1 tbsp cinnamon
3 cups of half and half(ya, totally diet friendly) 1 loaf of stale bread
3/4 cup white sugar 2 Granny Smith apples
1/2 almond paste, broken into small pieces 1 1/2 cups of sliced almonds
5 eggs
1 tbsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Slice bread. Mix custard ingredients,except apples and almonds. Pour custard mixture over bread crumbs and apples. Add almonds; mix with bread well. Let sit to soak about 30 minutes, up to 1hour. Grease 9 inch springform pan. Cover outside bottom and side with aluminum foil. Pour bread mixture into pan. Top with remaining almonds. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until knife comes out clean(put knife in center of pan).

My Mom used to pour maple syrup on the top and she always served it warm, it was always good if i was feeling unwell . The beverage of choice was ginger ale and Welch's grape juice mixed together.

Your it!!
