We followed the same procedure used when making bread pudding, but in lieu of bread, we used M.Y. San Graham Crackers instead.

Bread pudding is one of the easiest desserts to prepare. It’s also a great way to save and enjoy otherwise bad food, like if you have a ton of leftover loaves in your fridge but have minimal time (and effort) to spare. Our recipe combines tart calamansi juice and rich vanilla cream to achieve that sweet-sour mix we Filipinos love. A dash of cinnamon adds a Yuletide touch to this dessert, making it a perfect addition to your Christmas table.

    Graham cracker pudding sounds like a tasty alternative to standard-issue bread pudding, but I’m of the opinion that the best version is one where you replace the bread with odds and ends of leftover cake and cookies, soak ’em all in a creamy custard, throw in a cup of chopped chocolate, and bake the lot into what we call “freckled pudding”. Happy New Year!
