Good recipes to share with friends.
I can’t remember ever being excited for bread pudding, and perhaps the sometimes reviled raisin is to blame. Even though there are still a few scattered raisins here, the sweet cinnamon-roll flavor totally makes up for them.
In all honesty, I don’t mind raisins as much as I used to. When I was very young, probably around 7 years old, I ate an entire baggie of raisins. That turned me off raisins for a good 10 years. Now, I’m much more of a raisin fan, but I still understand people who dislike them.
This recipe is inspired by a dessert I once saw listed on a menu. I was too full to try the “cinnamon roll bread pudding” that the restaurant touted, but I promised that I would try to make it myself… and I did! Initially, I thought I was going to make cinnamon rolls, cut them up and put them into the pudding, but decided instead to just use a lot of cinnamon with a ever-so-slightly sweet and a dense-yet-fluffy bread: challah. I’d definitely like to hear what kinds of bread other people try.
Like cinnamon buns, this bread pudding is incredibly sweet and full of cinnamon.
To match the sweetness of the recipe, here’s a sweet track and video by DSL called “Supalove”. They’re not an overly active band, so this track is a special treat. So, turn it up and dance around while you whip up your food:
Hope you love this bread pudding!
