Sweet Potato Bread Pudding with Bananas Foster Sauce
The first time I tried Bread Pudding, I fell in love.
It is such a simple dessert but absolutely delicious. I remember, I was at an Italian restaurant a decade ago and I saw it on the dessert menu. This type of dessert is not common for Russians so of course I have never had the opportunity to try it. I decided on a whim to go for it because I did recollect hearing about it. I never had an interest in trying it because well it doesn’t “sound” like the best dessert you could have.
I mean….CHOCOLATE CAKE or BREAD PUDDING???? Yea…Chocolate Cake would win always UNTIL I finally tasted this heavenly creation.
Seeing as it is comfort food weather with no end of freezing temperatures insight, I wanted to recreate this dessert with a little help from my other favorite flavors of the season.
SWEET POTATOES and CRANBERRIES (the contrast of these is tantalizing)
These two ingredients reign supreme throughout the holidays, so why not add it to a dessert that will make you feel all the comfort of a sweet potato casserole in an alternate form.
