TWD::Bread Pudding

 This week, our Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Sharon from Simply Southern.  Until about five years ago, I wasn't a big fan of bread puddings.  What changed my mind?  I tried a crockpot recipe for my mother-in-law who LOVES bread pudding and since we were living with her at the time, I thought it would be a nice gesture.  Well, as it turned out, I ended up LOVING it, too!  
I mean, if you're a fan of cinnamon rolls, bread pudding is quite similar.  My kids even love the flavor and taste.  Not too sweet, a hint of cinnamon and a creamy eggy flavor and completely decadent and satisfying with every bite.  Dorie's original recipe called for 1Tbsp. of bourbon on top.  Well, we're not into that kind of stuff at our house so I didn't add it, but I really don't think it needed it.  It was DELICIOUS all on its own!

  1. You know, I'm thinking a light caramel sauce drizzled over the top might do very well instead of the bourbon. What do you think? I love bread pudding - grew up with it and confess it's usually my choice when we go for dessert at Chuck-a-rama. But I always think it needs a little caramel. (Which was never on it when I was growing up, either.)

    Am saving this recipe. Looks wonderful!

  2. Looks delicious. I do love bread pudding. What is your crock pot recipe?

  3. I'm still not a bread pudding fan, but it's been yeaaaaaaaars so maybe I should try it again!
