I’m going to let you in on the secret workings of Pillsbury and my own dark secret. Are you ready? I hate bread pudding. Or, I did. Here’s the story…
My Pillsbury editor and I often chat about what’s popular in the food world, what seasonal recipes we enjoy and think all of you would enjoy. We want to be true to ourselves and make things we believe in, but we totally want to inspire all of you, too. We want to make recipes that are going to make Pillsbury fans everywhere want to make more of our recipes. Usually there’s no problem.
And here we are. This dulce de leche bread pudding is seriously so delicious it literally turns haters into believers. In fact, I took it to four random friends and even told them I hate bread pudding just so they would give me sincere feedback. All four not only were raving about how amazing it was, they begged me for the recipe.
So, here’s how easy it is.
First, spread the dulce de leche on the bottom of mini baking dishes or one large dish.
Remove the bread pudding from the oven and allow it to cool for a couple of minutes. Isn’t it pretty?
Place a plate or platter over the dish/es and while holding tight, flip the bread pudding over, scraping out any remaining dulce de leche and spreading it over the top of the pudding.
Top with fresh whipped cream and cinnamon sugar and then devour the creamy, sweet, caramel-y goodness.
