Paula Deen’s Bread Pudding

Bread Pudding is one of my biggest weaknesses. I had my first taste of bread pudding when I tired Kneaders Raspberry Bread Pudding. It was love at first bite. Seriously, if I am going to splurge on calories, just put a plate of that in front of me and watch it disappear within seconds ;-)

This bread pudding is pretty delicious… then again, anything made from Paula Deen is going to be sinfully good. If you are looking for that perfect, decedent treat that will completely knock the socks off of your guests, then this is the recipe you are looking for. It is melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the sauce is the perfect and most delectable compliment to this treat.

    I recently went a cooking class and we made a bread pudding with chocolate in it and a bourbon sauce on the top–it was literally the most amazing, mouthwatering food I had ever eaten. I can not wait to try yours!!

    I love bread pudding! I haven’t had it in ages and come to think of it – I think my mom has always been the one to make it for us. I don’t think I’ve made it for myself yet. Oh gosh, I need to change that. I can only imagine how amazing Paula D’s version is Nikki!

    I have always wanted to make this recipe from Paula. I grew up with Bread & Butter pudding and have always wanted to try Bread Pudding. Hopefully one day I will get to this. Gorgeous pictures :)

    I’m pretty sure that one cup of brown sugar is supposed to be a half cup.
    The first time I made this recipe from Paula Deen’s site on Food Network, the bread pudding was perfect and the sauce was overkill. I made it again a couple of days ago, and felt it was way too sweet. Anyway, next time I plan to reduce the granulated sugar to half, too.

    Does any bread work? Because I would think Hawaiian bread would be fine to use.
