Strawberries n Creme bread pudding
I posted this bread pudding on my Instagram earlier today, and to my surprise everyone inquired about the recipe. I didn’t know people even liked bread pudding that much, but my supporters were quick to let me know to stop playing and share the deets. So, quick story about how I have fallen in love with making bread puddings. This was another dish I grew up hating and went through adulthood hating it. Nothing about mushy bread excited me, that was until I visited New Orleans (one of my favorite cities) and I tasted the most perfect bread puddings I’ve ever had in my life. I came back to Atlanta with a new mindset and ready to taste every bread pudding I could get my hands on, there was one problem. I still hated them lol. I have a rule if I hate something I have to learn to make it and y’all, I have been a bread pudding making fool. I still haven’t tasted a bread pudding in a restaurant that I like (excluding the one in Nola) so I just stick to making my own.
This recipe was born from me having a bored Friday night at home during “that time of the month” lol. I was craving something sweet but didn’t have the patience to make an eloborate dessert, so I pulled out some puree I made a few nights nights before and mixed in a few other ingredients and voila…the strawberries and creme bread pudding was born. And I think it may be my favorite one to date. I’ve listed the recipe for my bread pudding AND my puree below to make life simpler. This puree can be used to top your French toast, waffles, or pancakes. Or if you love pound cakes like I do you can even heat it up and spread some on top of that too! I hope you guys love this one like I do. It’ll definitely get you a ring or pregnant….or both 😉
