Cinnamon Bread Pudding

Bread pudding may seem like an odd choice for dessert in July since it’s usually winter comfort food. Hear me out, though. Cinnamon Bread Pudding is fantastic served cold. Now, if you’ve never had cold bread pudding, you’re missing out. It’s sweet and creamy and, well, perfect for a hot summer night. So, do yourself a favor, and try this bread pudding for dessert tonight.

    Would you believe I’ve never eaten, or made, bread pudding?

    Everybody adds raisins/sultanas (hate those)
    I can always think of something more exciting to make for dessert, despite knowing I could simply omit ingredients I don’t like!!!!

    But, I have some croissants that need using and had considered making a bread style pudding with cinnamon, then I came across this recipe, what excellent timing.

    Thanks for sharing this.

      I never put the raisins in mine either, though chocolate chips make a nice substitute for them. Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts, so I hope that you enjoy it, too! =)
