True confession: last Friday I bought a fresh whole-wheat baguette to have with dinner. True confession: today I remembered that half of it remained, still in its brown paper bag. Unsurprisingly, it was rock-hard. Rather than throw it away, I did what any true BrokeAss would do: I made bread pudding. Waste not, want not.

Recipe Serves 6
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8" pie plate with butter.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and molasses. Gently stir in sugar and ginger until well-incorporated. Add bread and allow to soak for 5-10 minutes, until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
- Use a spatula to scrape the bread mixture into the greased pie plate. Sprinkle with the blueberries and dot with butter. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
- Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before dusting with powdered sugar and serving.
