Looking for a classic dessert recipe with leftover bread slices ?Leftovers can always be converted into yummy makeovers.One such easy recipe is Bread Gulab Jamun where left over bread is converted into yummy dessert.It is prepared by mixing bread slices with milk,milk powder then fried in ghee and soaked in sugar syrup before serving.
Regular sweet white bread from the bakery makes a good bread gulab jamun,avoid using sour dough loaves,wheat bread and savoury bread as they are not suited for bread jamuns.
I love this recipe for it could be made ahead of time for a gathering and also can be made in jiffy for sudden guests. Bread Jamuns are more delicious when served warm with some vanilla ice cream. Once you start making this yummy sweet at home I bet you would reserve bread slices every time you buy a loaf.
