I....don't like bread pudding. This has disappointed many people over the course of my life, but now that I have my whole gluten issue, at least I have a real legit excuse not to eat it. It's a texture thang.
Anyway, I've tried numerous bread puddings -- at your mom's house, at a fancy restaurant. All were DISGUSTING to my palate....
UNTIL MY MOM MADE KRISPY KREME BREAD PUDDING.
For whatever reason, the texture of this bread pudding doesn't bother me, and well, it's freaking delicious y'all. And it would be great for a brunch, or a baby shower.
And really, it's practically a diet food, as about 3 bites are sufficient to satisfy your sweet tooth. Much more is a recipe for sugar OD.
