This pudding dish is made in a 5-quart crockpot. If your crock pot is a large oval, you might try making the pudding in a round souffle dish or another casserole tin or container that fits in the large crock.

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups plain breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
  • Optional: 1/2 cup raisins
  • Optional: 1 mashed or sliced banana

Steps to Make It

  1. Mix all ingredients together until breadcrumbs are thoroughly wet and the mixture is smooth like thick oatmeal.

  2. Place mixture in a generously greased slow cooker.

  3. Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours, or until a knife inserted in center comes out fairly clean.

Note: For the last 1/2 hour of cooking, lift the lid a "crack" by putting a spoon or fork between it and the pot, to let the excess moisture escape; otherwise you will have a clear liquid all around the bread pudding.
