Easy Bread Pudding with Brown Sugar Bourbon Sauce


Hey y’all!

I’m back today with my last recipe before the holidays.

Sadly, I have misplaced my recipe I created for Red Velvet Cookies.
I have looked endlessly for it!
It was on a scrap paper that I was writing notes on for the recipe as I created it.
I never got around to writing it into my main cookbook.
Hopefully, I will come across it. If I do, I will still share it here.

Today I’m sharing a really easy BREAD PUDDING recipe.

I usually use a vanilla custard over it (which is so very good too) but decided to come up with something a little different.
Brown Sugar Bourbon Sauce….which ends up not the most lovely color but does have a lovely taste! ūüėČ

You can also eat it without…..

Or even drizzle a bit of Maple Syrup over top and serve for breakfast.
It’s pretty versatile.
Add some nuts, some chocolate chips or even a bit of fruit.

Yummy, comfort food all the way!

You can use any bread you like but I like to use something like this….

Just cut it into 1 inch squares, mix the batter and pour into the baking dish.

Bake and done!

Be sure to serve this one warm.
Reheat if necessary.

I hope you enjoy it!
