5 Favorite Rhubarb Recipes - #3 Shirley's Johnson's Rhubarb Bread Pudding

Nothing beats the comfort of warm bread pudding on a rainy spring day, and I love this recipe from my neighbor Shirley. It's a nice, custard-y bread pudding that is fab with a bit of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Shirley and Gordy (or as we sometimes call them "Shorty & Girly") are great neighbors. Always friendly and ready for a chat over the fence. Plus you've got to love a neighbor that says any cucumbers that grow on your side of the fence are yours!

More recipes from Shirley will be featured over the next few days... the woman knows how to bake with RHUBARB!

Shirley Johnson's Rhubarb Bread Pudding
2 - 3 cup diced rhubarb
1¼ cup sugar
2 rounded Tbsp flour
¼ tsp cinnamon
4 slices white bread (toasted, buttered, cut into squares)
2 beaten eggs
1¼ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp sugar

Mix rhubarb, sugar, flour, and cinnamon together lightly and put in 8" x 12" pan. (sprayed) Lay the toast squares on top of the rhubarb mixture. Mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and sugar and pour on top. Bake at 350ยบ for 25 to 35 minutes.
