Cadbury Egg Bread Pudding


I have a funny story for you today. Sad, but funny. We were celebrating birthdays at work today. I was in charge of buying a cake. I decided it was a good idea to get an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. The little party started at 12:30 and Dairy Queen does not open until noon. So, I decided to buy the cakes the night before.

But they wouldn’t fit in my freezer, so I left them in my garage. It was only supposed to be in the 30′s, I thought it would be fine. You know where this is going, right? So, this morning I grabbed the cakes and put them in my car. Once I got to work I unpacked the cakes. Totally melted. Unsalvageable. I had to throw away 2 Dairy Queen blizzard cakes. That is like against the law or something, right? RIP cookie dough and peanut butter blizzard cakes. I’m sorry. I will never let that happen again.

 I had never even had bread pudding until a few years ago. Now, I don’t know if I could live without it. It is great because it is so adaptable. Just take some bread and custard-y type sauce and bake it. You can have fun with it and add whatever makes you happy. It always comes out delicious. you really can’t go wrong with bread pudding.

I just love Cadbury eggs. I was trying to think of something to put them in for Easter. I have seen cupcakes and brownies and cookies but I wanted to do something different, so I went with bread pudding. It turned out great. If Cadbury eggs aren’t your thing then add Snicker eggs or Reeses or really anything you want. Use your imagination!
