my first recipe was a success, and what a wonderful success it was. my mother liked these, which is definitely confirmation that i did a decent job, since she’s a good judge of baking.
now, i was never a huge fan of bread pudding, but the more i tried it, the more i liked it. and if you don’t think you like bread pudding, rest assured that this recipe will change your mind.
i took some pictures, but they didn’t turn out too great (im working on my baking skills here, not my photography skills!)

this is what they looked like right out of the oven. i really liked the fact that the recipe called for a muffin pan – this made for perfect sized portions. you could also use ramekins, which would work well for a dinner party.
notice the shine on top – that’s from the sweet maple drizzle, which is delicious. it calls for pure maple syrup, which i wasn’t going to use because it’s so expensive, but i’m glad i invested in some. it really made it extra special, as the fake syrup just wouldn’t have even compared to the real stuff.
also, i used cinnamon raisin swirl bread, because it’s all they had at the bakery in Weis. however, i liked the raisins – i think bread pudding without raisins isn’t really bread pudding, ya know?
these are best when served warm out of the oven, but to eat later, just reheat in the microwave for about 25 – 30 seconds and enjoy!
go here for this fabulous recipe. they are definitely worth your time!
