Brunch for two from leftovers never looked so good.
After waking up with a sweet tooth and scrambling (no pun intended) for some inspiration, my eyes fell to the butcher's block, where a cake stand held three apple cinnamon muffins holding out from the batch I'd made early in the week. Not quite stale, but too far gone to satisfy on their own, I recalled the French notion of pain perdu [ lost bread ]. Traditionally prepared as what we Americans know as French toast, I needed to co-opt the concept into something a bit more muffin-friendly, or that bread would be lost indeed.
Enter the English, with their bread cream and their eggs, their raisins and their 350 [ degree ] oven, and 30 minutes to perfection. And there before us, before we'd barely rubbed the sleep from our eyes, was Bread Pudding, my muffins revived and our sweet tooth sated.
