Goolab Jamoon Pudding (recipe)

Goolab Jamoon Pudding

This post was originally published on January 23, 2007. It has been updated once since then.

When I first heard about Leftover Tuesdays I immediately thought what a great idea! :) If there’s one thing that I’ve learnt over the past few months (thanks to Rachael Ray) is that leftovers don’t have to be reheated facsimiles of their former selves. This may have been common sense to many people but it was like a choir of angels from the heavens for me. Ever since then I rejoice at leftovers and my creativity has really grown in leaps and bounds. This time around I had SO many ideas for Leftover Tuesday that I had to narrow them down. Can you imagine? :D

In the end I decided to combine the best of two worlds. You see, I had quite a few leftover Goolab Jamoon in the freezer from my last batch, and I also had my (at the time spanking new) Reviewer’s Copy of The Good Home Cookbook: More Than 1000 Classic American Recipes that had finally reached me ages after all the Americans had already raved over it :D I thought why not make a breadpudding from it but use my Goolab Jamoon instead of bread. Voila! Goolab Jamoon Pudding :D GooJaPu? :D :lol:

Although I used Goolab Jamoon in this recipe I imagine that it would also work quite well with leftover glazed doughnuts, or even just plain buttered bread :D The final result was very light and custardy, and delicate in sweetness. The cardamom in the Goolab Jamoons also added a nice contrast to the milkiness :) It only took a few hours for the whole thing to be consumed :lol:

Goolab Jamoon Pudding
(adapted from a recipe in The Good Home Cookbook: More Than 1000 Classic American Recipes)

INGREDIENTS:

3 large eggs
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups cubed Goolab Jamoon/glazed doughnuts/plain bread (I didn’t have enough goolab jamoon so I used bits of stale bread too :D )
3/4 cup raisins
cinnamon

METHOD:

1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
2. Grease a 2-quart baking dish
3. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt until well blended.
4. Mix in the cubes and raisins.
5. Pour into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the top with cinnamon

6. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the pudding is puffed up and brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean

    I think your “bread pudding” looks a tad different from mine. Or should I say mom’s.

    Hmm. I wonder if it has anything to do with mom’s predilection for grinding everything…so we’d process the gulab jamoon. Or am I imagining things?

    Also, if you’re making regular bread pudding and you like the cardamon you could just put in cardamon you know…don’t need gulab jamoon with it! :-p

    Also.
    Hmm I say cardamon you say cardamom…I checked online dictionaries to see if I was crazy (quite possible) but it seems both are acceptable.
    *relief*

      we always leave our bread pudding in cubes :) and sure i could add cardamom (cardamon :P) to plain bread pudding but that would defeat the purpose of using up my LEFTOVERS this time around wouldn’t it :lol:

      • http://lilandra.com/blog Lilandra

        no no
        i didn’t mean add cardamon to your bread for *now*
        i mean for next time you make bread pudding and you don’t have the gulab jamoon and you only have plain ordinary bread

        i must ask mom if we use cubes
        hmmmmm

        • http://www.TriniGourmet.com Sarina

          lolziez :D i think i will add it the next time around :D it’s a fun flavour :D yes ask your mom :D hehehe :D this was a nice variation though :D

    I love the look of this pudding…I am not a fan of cinnamon but mmmmmm (I think I am the only person I know who doesn’t like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves or star anise- the aromatics- It’s due to misuse and abuse by my mom in a lot of recipes)
    Meanwhile your favorite person Nigella Lawson makes a great bread pudding hahahah (I had to throw that in)

    • http://www.TriniGourmet.com Sarina

      that’s true… it’s easy to think wow if 1 pinch of this spice is awesome… 1 tablespoon must be THE MOST AWESOME :D haha

      nigella :twisted:

      actually she had a trifle that looked good once… bread pudding is one of the few things the brits have accomplished with a yum factor … go figure that involves leftovers :P (waits to be beaten and flogged by Trig for that) …

        I think it is a great idea to use your sweet treats and some bread though. I am a big fan of donuts and they are sometimes on sale so I am gonna try it one day…
