Caramel Bread Pudding

When I planned to make a swee today the first thing came in my mind was Caramel Bread Pudding which I bookmarked long time in Poornima's Blog. This is very easy to prepare and can be made in a jiffy. The recipe calls for using pressure cooker but since my pressure cooker's mouth is narrow it was not possible to keep any utensil inside so I used my Rice Cooker To make this sweet. Sending this recipe to Nupur's Blog Bites- Cookers

You need:
White bread              8 Slices

Milk                           1 1/2cups
Sugar                          2/3cup + 2tbs
Vanilla essence            1tsp
Nuts or raisins(optional)
6"cake tin or any other similar dish

Tear the bread into small pieces. Pour the milk over it and let it soak for a while.
Then mash it with the back of a spoon. See to it that there should not be any pieces left. Take care to mash the crusts really well.
Now mix in the sugar and essence and keep aside.
For the caramel, heat the sugar with about 2tsp water on high heat. Do not stir, but swirl the pan frequently. When the sugar has melted and turns a dark golden brown, pour it into the dish. Working quickly, tilt the dish to coat the base completely and a little of the sides as well.
Keep it over a pan of cold water so that it sets.
Mix in the nuts or raisins, if using, into the bread mixture and pour the mixture on top of the caramel. Cover the top of the dish with aluminium foil
Steam for 15-20 mins in Pressure or Rice cooker. Remove and when cool enough keep the dish in the refrigerator to set for a couple of hours.
Invert onto a dish and cut into pieces.
