|cinnamon raisin bread pudding recipe|
Buy one get one free? Don't mind if I do!
Sounds like a good thing right? That is the logic that convinced me buying 2 pounds of cinnamon raisin bread was a good idea.....but since my husband claims he doesn't have a sweet tooth it's up to me to eat is all!. I hope you like cinnamon raisin bread because I will be posting nothing but that until further notice.
In all fairness to CRB it makes a wonderful base for bread pudding....which is good. I'll be eating a lot of it.
This recipe is scaled for two servings.... one for me to eat now and one for me to eat later. Want more? Lucky you! You have people who will eat sweets! I honestly considered eating it for breakfast. It's basically baked french toast, right?
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Bake until pudding is puffed and golden brown, approximately 20 to 25 minutes.
Place on wire rack to cool, while you make the caramel sauce.
**If you want your bread pudding and you want it now, you can skip this step. It's better for the texture, not for the patience. :)
