Budin de pan with dulce de leche
The “budin de pan” is a very popular dessert in the South – American kitchen. Born from the traditional poor and thrifty kitchen of emigrants from Piedmont to Argentina towards the end of the ‘800, this cake was made with bread, since it was one of the foods permissible to all people.
Besides the best known Argentine, the “budin de pan” is also present in Malaysia, where it is consumed with the custard, or Hong Kong, where the vanilla is considered to be the preferred partner. In Argentina and Uruguay, actually, the classic accompaniment is “dulce de leche”, a dense and sweet cream.
