My younger sister is getting married today! I thought this would be the perfect recipe to share on this blissful day….because this recipe truly is blissful!
I was just recently introduced to Kneaders earlier last year. I am a big sandwich fan, and convenient enough, that is what this restaurant specializes in! Aside from their yummy sandwiches, they have some delicious desserts, this Raspberry Bread Pudding being one of them. You could say it was love at first bite for me. Ever since my first bite, I have been on the lookout for a copy cat or similar recipe. Thanks to Pinterest, I have now found one! This could be a dangerous thing for me!You will love the sweetness and fruitiness that this bread pudding offers!
