The Breaking of the Bread


Guess what we did last weekend?

We were so lazy to go out that the kids and I decided to just make our own bread pudding.  Yup, you read me right… the kids and I… Pinky just observed nervously from the side as we made a mess of her kitchen.

I must say that all went well except may be for the bottle cap of the vanilla extract, which was so hard to remove. Grrr.

Anyway, I knew you guys would not believe me so I decided to document our weekend bonding activity with some photos.  Hope you guys enjoy these.

 Literally, the breaking of the bread.

Marga, I hope you combed your hair first… remember good grooming equals good cooking.

Rafael did not want to be left out.  That looks like so much fun.  Sandali, mga anak, naghugas na ba kayo ng kamay? Ayayay!

Next step – beat the eggs! Faster, Rafael, faster (no bad thoughts please).

… and now some milk…. careful, bro!

Mix the bread and Luigi’s dirty nails (seriously). It really grossed me out.

A few scoops of butter, Marga eager to try to scoop it with her fingers… noooooo!

Rafael, carefully measuring the sugar… it must be exact!

After mixing the other ingredients (i.e. cinnamon, vanilla extract and raisins), Pinky finally decided to help us transfer the mixture to a baking bowl…

… and into her ever reliable turbo broiler.

 

After 45 minutes, voila!

I know it does not look that appetizing but, I must say, it really turned out quite edible.  Keeping it in the refrigerator for a while makes it more yummy.

Okay, do not by shy now, just leave me a note so I can send some of our yummy creation – you know you want it!

  1. Wow! Not bad for a “first time baker”… if I may say so myself – congratulations! 🙂

    And to even include the kids in this “exciting” activity made this moment doubly special.

    You’re really the best, Hon! Magaling talaga ako pumili… hehehe 😉 Mwwwahhh!!!

    Do you think I can make a career out of this? Hmmm, kaunti pang practice, I guess. Perhaps the kids can make a living out of this. Malay mo, di ba?

    Sobra ka naman… may drama pa ang comment mo!

  2. hello keith! sige nga pahingi ako ng bread pudding! i’m sure super sarap yan kasi made out of love! padala ka naman dito!;)
    sarap panoorin ng mga tsikiting mo! my lil boy miguel helps me out too and i let him crack eggs or whisk anything! he enjoys helping me eh..pagbigyan..isa lang ang tagatulong ko at least ikaw tatlo. fun times three! wow!
    about pinky’s comment, feeling ko ikaw ang magaling pumili! heheh..nope, you two deserve each other and the loving bond that you have is just awesome ( i scrolled down and saw your hk pics/pinas pics etc..) stay in love forever!

    Dang, salamat naman at may naglakas loob na humingi nitong gawa namin. Kahit na pilitin ka lang 🙂

    It is a nice feeling to have the kids help you. I think they enjoy it a lot… and I hope they remember this when they become older. sundan mo na rin si Miguel para naman eh may dagdag na katulong ka naman.

    Magaling talaga ako pumili. Jackpot! Thanks for checking the other pictures.

  3. wow, what a nice idea to let your kids do the baking! harvs and i talked about it, we’ll definitely do this kind of activity when we have our own kids na 🙂

    the pudding looks soft and chewy. for me, basta soft and chewy, sarap na yun!

    sumo pala yung jap resto na sinasabi mo sa juffair. we have sumo here as well and we loooove it! hay, kung nasa bahrain kame, for sure, daily nasa sumo kame 🙂

    Gracita, it was really a fun activity, which I hope the kids will remember… sabagay, if they don’t, they can always read it in this site. I’m sure you and harvey will also be so creative with your children (take note marami yon ha)… di ba sabi mo rin na si Harvey eh may natural magnet with kids?

    Wow, international chain na pala yung Sumo. Sarap yung food niya – we love it (obvious ba sa pictures ni Pinky). We found another Japanese resto called Sushi Ko and it was nt really that great.

  4. this is wonderful! bread pudding has become a family affair for you guys. it’s a great way of spending quality time with our bagets 😉

    It turned out okay naman, Nell. I guess the sweat and more sweat that we put in this pudding made it a little more tasty.. hehe!

  5. Wow! Sarap!!!

    Ke-gugwapo’t-gwapa ng mga little helpers mo Kuya Keith! Labor of love talaga ito! Pag-laki ng mga bata isa ‘to sa mga babalik-balikan nila. Swerte at may mga patunay na litrato. 🙂

    Hmmm…gumawa rin ako nito bago ko i-view ang post na ito. Ang ginamit ko ay ang recipe ni Ate Weng. Asa oven pa. Naku…sana tama ang intindi ko sa style niya. Gumamit din ako ng raisins!Hehe! =)

    Nagugutom na ko!!! 😀

    Naku, ang dudungis nga ng aming helpers eh… ginawa kasi namin ito ng umaga eh I forgot to remind them to fix themselves up for the pictures. Look at Marga’s hair!

    Yung breadpudding ni Weng ay mas professionally done. Hindi nasunog yng itaas. I don;t know how she makes it that way. i’ll ask her too. Balitaan mo ako kung masarap lumabas ang pudding mo ha.

  6. Nalala ko tuloy the last time na nagbake din kami, riot ang kitchen..hehehe. Lahat gustong mag beat ng eggs at mag measure ng flour and sugar. Pero nakakatuwa lang kahit anong lasa pa yan, appreciated nila kasi nga gawa nila di ba?

    Ay naku, pareho din dito, Ann. Halos magpatayan sila doing the activity. I really had to say who will do this and that otherwise wala kmiing magagawa. Tama ka nga, kahit ano pang lasa noon eh okay na rin kasi pinaghirapan namin.

  7. mukhang masrap nga ah…. sige send mo ko ngayon sa pinas, hehehehehe….

    I’ll bake a new one for you… naks! Baka lang nga itapon mo lang sa basura… hmmm.. di bale na nga lang.

  8. pahingi naman ng recipe at magluluto rin kami ng mga anakis ko. Para naman may break sila sa kakukulit sa akin sa pag blo blog ko. hehehe

    Naku, I’ll ask my wife to give me the recipe so I can send to you… sinudan ko lang yung lsitahan niya eh. Salamat sa pagdaan ha.

  9. bravo! ang galing naman ng family project! this is similar to my and abby’s banana muffin project” not too long ago. magpipinsan nga ang mga anak natin. 😉 last week, hindi rin ako tinigilan ni abby hangga’t hindi kami nagbake ng muffins. 🙂

    pahingi naman next time! 😀

    Weng, ang sarap to have activities like this no? The kids really enjoy doing it… feeling ang galing naming lahat… kahit hindi naman… di bale, buti na lang at kami rin ang kumain ng niluto namin.

  10. uy pahingi rin! 🙂 this memory is yet another one for the books. nakakabusog na, fun pa. 🙂

    Meeya, send me tickets na lang and I’ll cook a fresh batch for you… hehehe.

  11. looks yummy! pwedeng negosyo sa holidays: chistmas pudding!

    your kids are very talented, Keith, mapa-drawing, paper maché, baking, singing… isa lang ibig sabihin ito: anlakas talaga ng genes ni Pinkie!

    just kidding! syempre, mana rin sila sayo.ü (bumawi ba?)
