Bread Rasmalai

I the first glance that looks like milk made Rasmalai right ;) I absolutely love rasmalai but I also know how much effort it takes to make the dumplings; something that does not suit my impatient nature as I want my desserts in a jiffy. I was so amazed when I came across this recipe in a weekly magazine. Hard to believe that it was made from bread!!!! And the recipe (slightly tweaked) is unbelievably quick and easy that it took me not more than 15 minutes to actually put this together. 

Well, bread cannot replace milk made dumplings of course! But serve this dessert chilled and you wouldn't notice much of a difference. Trust me!  So go ahead and try it right now :)
