The Best Bread Pudding Ever

Until I married Sir Streusel, I had never tasted Bread Pudding.  To tell you the truth, I had only read about it in books.  Bread Pudding had never made an appearance on my Sweet Mama’s table, ever.  Enter Sir Streusel into my life and I learn that the man I married worshiped his Mom’s Bread Pudding.  He would order it in restaurants and push it away every time.  I didn’t pay too much attention with what was going on with his search of the perfect Bread Pudding.  Hey, I always had my dessert that was normally smothered and covered in chocolate so I was happy.  After many years of being in a chocolate coma, I realized the sweetest man ever was not living a life of full satisfaction.  Sadley, poor Sir Streusel had come to accept a life minus his great love…..Bread Pudding.  I made it my life’s mission to make the life of this man complete.  After trying countless cookbook recipes, he still had not found his true love.  I then began to put my own recipe together based on the feedback I had received on what was wrong with the previous 487 pans of Bread Pudding I had baked for him.  It took many trial and errors, and I mean MANY,  but I did it!  I am happy to report that Sir Streusel lives a fulfilled life.  He is now complete!

In a large bowl whisk sugar, eggs, cinnamon,  and vanilla together. Remember, whisking allows the opportunity to shake your hips. Shaking your hips counts as cardio, which in turn counts as exercise…SCORE!!!

While bread and egg mixture is baking, make the sauce. Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla. Stir in one egg slowly. Add Rum, that's what makes the magic happen. The magic Rum Sauce.

 I don’t bake this very often, I like to keep it as a special treat for him.  I don’t take one single bite of it, I leave the entire pan for him.  Let’s just say he can polish off 75% of a  9″x 13″ pan by himself.  And still have that small waist and flat belly…..UGH.  

I hope you bake this and make your life complete.  Sir Streusel is now leading a happy, fulfilled, satisfied life, all because of Bread Pudding!

Enjoy,

Jody and Edna

** Substitute Rum for Rum Extract.  I have used both.
