Breakfast deluxe: Bread pudding from the oven with warm vanilla sauce

Yes, Easter. The annual spring beginning. Outdoor family party, walking barefoot for the first time, conjuring up fresh, light dishes from spring vegetables ...
Yes, that was Easter 2012. Or even in 2011 ...
Easter 2013 also had such a family party, but it was snowing and I lay 150km away sniffling and snuffling in my bed.
Hello cold number 2 2013! After carnival cold so now Easter cold. Of course, always suitable for weekends and holidays.


No Easter delicacies for me, no hard-boiled eggs. I love hard-boiled eggs like that! Without further ado, I then hard-boiled 6 vile brown organic eggs. But the true Easter mood did not come up.
The only consolation on these otherwise so dreary holidays was a sensational meal of food next to the viewing of at least 3 series!
The remains of the Chocolate Hot Cross Buns, which were banished for the girls meeting on Good Friday, landed slightly dry in my easter sunday breakfast. And that was just great.
3 of the delicious Schokobrötchen remained and stood still lonely and left on my photo set for the last blog post around. Until I found them again on Sunday morning and gave them a second chance.

At first I had thought of French toast, but the bun does not quite fit. And they were already a bit too dried.
So in the favorite source Foodgawker searched for "bread pudding" and quickly found out that this is not rocket science at all. What's inside is always the same, so it works without a prescription too.
So that's why I quickly put together something very delicious.
And while the bread pudding was in the oven, there was still some time left for a quick, very delicious meal To make vanilla sauce!

Then switch back the temperature immediately. It is best to work with a thermometer, the temperature in the pot should not go above 80 ° C and the sauce no longer simmer or cook.
Add vanilla and egg yolk to the pot and stir in with stirring for about 5 minutes until the sauce continues thickens. If the temperature is too hot, the egg will clot. Therefore, just stir at medium temperature.
