I’m always looking for opportunities to try something a bit different, so when Ginger Lemon Girl asked if anyone want to try a recipe from her slow cooker cookbook, The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook (affiliate link), I jumped at the chance!
I’ve never done a gluten-free bread pudding before, and the last time I tried a gluten-containing bread pudding, it turned out a bit more like an omelette (it turns out you shouldn’t substitute egg yolks for whole eggs – who knew?).
However, this recipe was insanely easy. It’s perfect for using up old bread – the more dried out the bread is, the better it works. Furthermore, it can be made completely dairy free by using your preferred milk substitute instead of evaporated milk. I used hazelnut milk, my most recent obsession.
Slow cooker recipes aren’t for the impatient bakers – you’ll have to wait hours, not minutes, for this pudding to be done. But I promise you it’s worth it.
OK, so bread pudding isn’t the most photogenic of recipes, and I admit I’m no food photographer, but this is comfort food at its very best.
The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook will be released on October 18th 2012 – just in time for cold autumn evenings.

Oh, you are so welcome! Definitely the perfect food for when the days start getting shorter and colder, or “that time of the month”. Good luck with your recipe book launch! Sam x
