Comfort Food ~ 5-minute Bread & Butter Pudding

As salam.

  • Over the weekend, we didn't actually go anywhere except to the newly-launched H&M store in Umeda. So, basically we were just lazing at home most of the time plus it was a wet weekend, again. 
  • I suddenly craved for something sweet(no, I'm not pregnant & I crave for food all the time lol). I looked through the youtube for a simple recipe, 5-minute Bread & Butter Pudding. You can watch it here
  • Yeay! I had some nearly-stale bread and all the ingredients needed in the kitchen. 
  • It's a very simple recipe and it tastes delicious. I'm a fan of bread & butter pudding and I think this recipe is just awesome! 
  • You need about 2 minutes to prepare and mix. Next, just tuck in your mug/baking dish in the microwave for 2-3 minutes and you're done! I've made some changes to the recipe as I was making it for 3 instead of 1. Here's the recipe. Enjoy!

5-minute Bread & Butter Pudding

50g  Butter(melted)
1 Egg
60g  Granulated sugar (I used brown sugar) 
10g  Cinnamon powder
1/4  Vanilla essence
Some raisins if you like. 
2 slices of bread

Mix everything in a bowl using a whisk. Then, add the raisins. Cut the bread into small pieces and toss them into the bowl. When everything is mixed, put the mixture into your baking dish. Bake in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes. 

Try this and don't forget to leave a comment! :)

Autumn ~ Chapter 1

As salam readers.  

  • I know this is late.  It's already spring and I'm writing about autumn :P. 
  • During the previous autumn season, we had gone to a few places in Osaka to witness the beauty of autumn leaves or 'momijigari'. 
  • On November 27th, 2012, we made a short trip to a nearby park called Expo '70 Commemorative Park.  It is located at Banpaku-kinen-koen station of Osaka Monorail, after a transit from Midosuji line.  
  • I've attached the link to the access map on their website.    

  • Previously, the park was the site used for an expo back in 1970. 
  • I'll stop mumbling now and let you browse through the pictures ;)

If you're in Osaka, this is one of the places that is worth visiting during autumn & spring, especially if you enjoy strolling in a peaceful, serene and tranquil setting with magnificent view.
