Need a recipe for your leftover panettone bread, cinnamon rolls, or regular from your Christmas party? Use the leftovers to feed a crowd in the morning after with this recipe! If you are in a rush and want to stale bread quickly, you can simply just cube your bread and leave it to rest of a cooling rack over night to air dry. Then, after drying, the bread will be hard and stale, which is perfect for a sturdy bread pudding. No one wants a soggy and crumbling bread pudding . . . yuck. Happy Holidays~ 😀IMG_0318

After trying to find the perfect bread pudding that doesn’t end up all soggy and yucky, I just gave up and started to whip up my own. Surprisingly, it came out terrific! I couldn’t help it but I ended up have almost three servings because it was sooo good! Drizzle it with your favorite syrup, caramel sauce, or ice cream.

Counted my blessings this morning and I am very thankful that I was born in a humble family that loves and and supports my decisions. Without them, I know that I would not have done anything without their help. How many blessings do you have? Have you said ‘thank you’ to your friends and family yet? Make sure you do once in a while to remind them that you appreciate them in your life. IMG_0311 IMG_0316
