Having the biggest sweet tooth, I was always on the hunt for a good bread pudding recipe. Here I am talking about the bread pudding from heaven: moist, hearty and rich, the one that literally melts in your mouth, making you want more, saying that the calories don't matter. You know what I'm talking about. 

I was inspired by this recipe from the Inspired taste but I wanted to adopt it for the more common and conventional. Sure, cooking in a crock-pot is always a great experiment (especially when it comes to making desserts), but I decided to make an amazing bread pudding that requires a real oven.

A few tips will be mentioned below but you can follow them as needed. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this recipe—let your inner foodie come out and have fun. And remember, you can never spoil your bread pudding by using too much Nutella or chocolate. Now, let's experiment!

    Cut the rolls into cubes. Ideally, you would want to get 8-10 cubes out of each roll.

    Whisk the eggs and sugar, slowly adding milk into the mixture. Once the mixture is consistent, pour it over the bread pieces. Generously sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Cover the baking pan with the aluminum foil and send it into the pre-heated oven. Bake at 350°F for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Extra Tips:

1. You could substitute sesame rolls and croissants for the

day-old bread of any kind.

2.  Add raising and (or) pecans will add extra texture. The pudding will taste even better.


3. After a few experiments I will say that by adding Bailey's Irish Cream you can turn it into an adult-friendly kind of dessert.
