~~Project Friday~~Micaela's Capirotada (Bread Pudding)

Today is Project Friday and I am sharing my Mom's recipe for Capirotada which is Bread Pudding. Every Easter I remember my Mom making this for us to eat on Friday during Lent. My brothers and I were always so anxious to eat this as soon as it came out of the oven and in order for us not to burn our mouth my Mom would put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I did not do this today as now I can wait until it cools down a bit before we eat it. lol. Please go and visit Rosemarie at Sugar Plum Cottage to see all who are participating this Project Friday.

The ingredients:
1 loaf of white bread
1 quart of water
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cloves
1 Tblsp. cinnamon
1 stick butter
1 cup raisins
8 oz grated yellow cheese
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup milk

Put water, sugars, cloves, cinnamon and raisins in pot and boil. About 20 min.

Toast the bread and butter the slices. Grate your cheese.

Butter 9 x 13 pan, and start layering the toasted bread. Sprinkle the grated cheese and pecans. Then spoon some of the liquid with raisins over the cheese and toast. Continue layering and pouring liquid with raisin until finished using the bread.

Pour any remaining liquid and raisins on top of the toast and cheese .

Now get one cup milk and pour over the toasted bread. With a spoon cut in the bread to make sure the milk gets down into the layers. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

If you can't wait for it to cool, try putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top or eat it just plain without the ice cream.

Enjoy. Now go visit everyone at Project Friday.
Hugs :)

That looks yummy. I will have to try it. I grew up eating bread pudding, too...I hated when my mother put raisins in it. But I like them now. She didn't put cheese in it either.... I'm going to give this one a try.

Oh my gosh Irma! I love Capirotada! Mom never used to put nuts in ours. I didn't even know that people down South put nuts in theirs until we moved here. I love it! Now I used cranberry bread and slice it just like the white bread. Now I'm going to have to go to HEB and buy the ingredients!
