I made this bread pudding recipe, took a bite, and my mouth was seriously happy. The cinnamon spiced bread pudding with butter sauce made my house smell amazing.

I love this dessert too, because it’s a cinch. It really doesn’t take more than five minutes to whip it up and get it in the oven. 

You will most likely have all of the ingredients on hand, with the exception of the French bread, which doesn’t cost more than a couple of dollars. 

If you’re like me and eating a lot of treats this time of year, and your jeans are getting a little tighter, you can substitute the sugar for a sugar substitute and the milk for skim, and feel at ease about eating it.

Add the milk and sugar.

Here’s where you can use skim milk if you’re watching fat, and a sugar substitute if you’re watching your calorie intake. Just double check the sugar substitute measurements. Sometimes it calls for a little more, or less of the substitute.
