I really don’t have words to describe my Butter Pecan Bread Pudding with Cream Cheese Glaze and Chocolate Chips.
Try saying that quickly.
Let’s just say if a cinnamon roll, pecan praline and bread pudding had a baby, this would be it!
Yep, it’s that good, every single bite!
First, you must purchase high quality glazed doughnuts.
Secondly, leave the doughnuts out on the counter overnight to harden.
Yes, I know, I said high quality, but there’s a method to my doughnut madness.
One could just purchase day old doughnuts, but I never do that.
I prefer to make sure my doughnuts are not weeks old so I do the hardening of the doughnuts myself.
Lastly, you need high quality pecans and milk chocolate chips and lots of heavy cream.
Don’t forget pure vanilla and real butter.
Did I mention when I was a kid we used leftover cinnamon rolls to make bread pudding.
Yep, that’s where I got this idea from.
My mother used to make super size cinnamon rolls and all the leftovers went to bread pudding.
I will admit, when I pulled the bread pudding out the oven, I topped it with even more chocolate chips and pecans.
Yep, we’re creating bread pudding memories folks.
This is the perfect holiday dessert and because it’s so rich, I mean super rich, I told my family I think we’ll wait until Christmas before we make this again.
