This is a recipe for the ultimate breakfast dessert. Yes, it’s really just pudding, but you can’t go wrong with this one! This recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious. The peaches and cream mixture will remind you of your favorite childhood snack (peanut butter & jelly) while giving you some much needed energy in the morning. Put these together with any bread or pastries that are sitting around, add a nice hot cup of coffee or tea on the side, and enjoy!
Before you get started, make sure you have all the ingredients on hand.
– One can of condensed milk
– Four eggs
– Two cups heavy cream
– Three tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
– Half teaspoon vanilla extract or a few drops of almond extract for a different flavor profile. You may also want to add cinnamon and nutmeg if desired. These are both typical additions in creme brulee recipes as well!
Instructions: Throw it all into one pot and whisk until smooth! Cook over medium heat while stirring constantly with an electric mixer at high speed for about ten minutes or until thickened like pudding that has been cooked too long (don’t worry, we’re not going to overcook it).
Once the custard has reached desired thickness, remove from heat and set aside to cool. It will continue cooking in its own heat and thicken more as it cools if you let it sit too long on the stove! Once cooled, refrigerate until cold for at least three hours or overnight. Make sure your fridge is nice and cold before transferring into a container that can be left there- this means either freezing something big enough ahead of time or making room by moving some things around so they’re not touching anything else with their frosty little hands (we don’t want them getting warm!).
In case we haven’t made ourselves clear: You must COOK IT – do not attempt to eat raw eggs !!!
What are some of the best breakfast desserts?
The best breakfast desserts are ones that you can feel good about eating first thing in the morning. If it’s sweet, make sure that there isn’t too much sugar and if it is savory, make sure there’s some protein included! I have two favorites this time of year: Peaches & Cream Breakfast Pudding or a Quinoa Oatmeal Bowl with fruit.
If you’re looking for an easy yet decadent breakfast dessert to start your day with, try my recipe for Peaches & Cream Breakfast Pudding! You’ll need only five ingredients total – plus water and salt – making them perfect for whipping up on Sunday night and enjoying all week long as needed. Plus they taste amazing at room temperature or heated up!
– Basic Oatmeal (I use this) – you can also use gluten free oats if preferred. If using steel cut oats, make sure to cook them first before adding the rest of the ingredients.
– Half a medium or large ripe peach for each serving; I prefer yellow peaches over white ones because they are sweeter and have more flavor but both work well in this recipe. Peel & pit your peaches before slicing into cubes or dicing so that there is no skin left on once sliced open. You’ll need about one cup of diced/cubed fruit per serving depending on how big your pieces are when cutting them up depends on how much volume will be needed later.
– Greek Yogurt – I use a full cup of yogurt per serving.
– Half Cup to one cup of milk (depending on how thick you want your pudding) – it’s better if the milk is cold from the fridge for this recipe but either type will work just as well.
– Granulated Sugar or Honey, whichever sweetener you prefer; start with half a teaspoon and add more until desired sweetness level is reached because honey can be much sweeter than sugar depending on what kind is used so adjust accordingly. You’ll need about two & three quarters teaspoons of granulated sugar or roughly one tablespoon + two teaspoons of honey per serving in order to taste properly sweetened which means that at least five tablespoons are needed total when cooking for two servings.
– One teaspoon of vanilla extract per serving.
– Fresh Peaches, either sliced or diced depending on your preference and how much time you have available to cut them up; I prefer dicing the peaches because it’s easier but slicing works just as well. Add a quarter cup fresh peach slices for each single serving (half a cup if cooking for two) which means that one medium peach will provide enough fruit for about four servings so keep this in mind when buying from the store too – be sure to select at least three large ones since they’re usually sold individually! You can also use canned peaches instead but remember that these are some more sugar than fresh varieties and may not taste as good due to decreased levels of flavor.
– Almond milk, two cups for each single serving (four cups if cooking for two); this recipe is dairy free and it’s also gluten free which means that any of you who have dietary restrictions should be able to enjoy without worry! The almond milk has a nice taste when mixed with vanilla extract or cinnamon but feel free to experiment – maybe try using coconut creamer instead? Or how about adding some honey? Go wild with your creativity in the kitchen and see what kind of awesome things come out!
– Granulated sugar, one cup per single serving (two cups if cooking for two)
