DRIED MIXED FRUITS BAKE BREAD PUDDING



I started my Syawal Fasting yesterday. The plan was to do 6 consecutive  days.The first day of Shawwāl is Eid ul-Fitr. Some Muslims observe six days of fasting during Shawwāl beginning the day after Eid ul-Fitr since fasting is prohibited on this day. These six days of fasting together with the Ramadan fasts, are equivalent to fasting "perpetually", according to Sahih Muslim. The reasoning behind this tradition is that a good deed in Islam is rewarded 10 times, hence fasting 30 days during Ramadan and 6 days during Shawwāl is equivalent to fasting the whole year in terms of reward.

Two of my daughters staying with me joined me in this Syawal Fasting. It's easier this way, I only prepare the "buka puasa" and the girls can recover their Ramadan shortfall. So yesterday I made a simple buka puasa meal, Pad Thai, store bought sugar cane drinks and this favorite Bread pudding.


This easy recipe for bread pudding can be changed to include different fruits. Try prunes, dried apricots or currants, or even fresh fruit, such as apricots, peaches or plums. Serve your  bread pudding with vanilla custard or enjoy it with small pitcher of heavy cream or with a dollop of crème fraîche for extra richness. You can flavor this with different spices as well, try mixing in a teaspoon of cinnamon or ground cardamom. It's delicious !!! and perfect dish to end a meal.

Mengambil keberkatan Syawal dan selepas kenyang dengan 6 hari EID MUBARAK SPECIAL semalam saya dan dua anak dara saya berpuasa 6. Cadangnya hendak ambil straight..insyallah kalau tidak ada apa-apa hal dengan kesihatan. Anak saya Myraz memang tidak pernah miss puasa Syawal ini sejak berusia 13 tahun lagi...mula-mula main-main aje tetapi sekarang dan jadi fix routine dia, saya suka cara dia, katanya lebih baik qada puasa awal...takut umur tak panjang nak tunggu tahun depan baru nak ganti....tentang itu memang saya respect pendirian dia.


Berbuka semalam saya goreng PAD THAI aje dengan air tebu beli siap. Ada lebihan roti saya buat Bread Pudding ini, kalau semua dah puasa nanti membazir pula roti ini. Bread Pudding kali ini saya masukkan sedikit buah-buahan campur ialah lebihan dari buat cookies raya hari itu, inilah masanya untuk clearkan stok hari raya. Roti saya potong tiga segi dan susun, cantik begini bila dah bakar nampak susunan roti, ayakan ising sugar nipis-nipis atas pudding. Untuk sosnya biasalah buat vanila sos.
