My Raisin Bread Pudding Recipe Submitted for Sun-Maid® Canadian Family Recipe Contest

| May 13, 2013 | 11 Comments

As a dedicated soccer and hockey family, our household was invited to take part in the Sun-Maid® Canadian Family Recipe Contest.  All entries have a chance to win a scrumptious Sun-Maid® catered brunch for 10 people just in time for Father’s Day.  All entrants are automatically entered into a draw to win Sun-Maid® Raisin Bread for a year.  Using Sun-Maid® Raisin Bread as inspiration and key ingredient, participants create an original recipe to be judged by leading Canadian chef and dad of three, Bob Villeneuve.

The first recipe that came to mind was a Raisin Bread Pudding.  During hot spring/summer days, I tend to cook less using the oven, therefore, this recipe is ideal since you bake it in the microwave.  It’s so easy to you create a perfect pudding every time.  The pudding can be eaten at breakfast, as a snack or for dessert.  As you can see, I got some help making the pudding. 🙂
