    Basically a Praline Bread Pudding… would be great with accompanying mimosas and some rich french roast coffee. Or some Drunken Strawberries… Mmmm!

    I did serve this with mimosas for my daughter’s bridesmaid brunch two years ago. It was wonderful!

    @Nevadanne – sorry, no photo right now. I haven’t made this in a while since it is just my husband and I at home most of the time. Next time I make this for company, I’ll take a photo. It ‘IS’ really good!
