Tiramisu Bread Pudding

May 8, 2013

I know this is one day early but  my  new website goes live sometime on Thursday and I wanted to make sure you received your weekly recipe.  I may have never said this, but I am in love with Tiramisu.  I am constantly trying new recipes and adapting them to make them my own. I have been working on tiramisu in a jar all winter, but I am just not ready yet to present yet, but be ready, I am almost there.   I am ready though to share this one with you. I did find this recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens magazine, but have changed it up a bit. I hope you like it. By the way, you will probably be seeing  A LOT more tiramisu recipes from me. This one is really easy and really good for breakfast or dessert. Tiramisu Bread Pudding - Serves 8 1 1/3 cups milk, 1 1/4 cups whipping cream, 2 tablespoons instant coffee crystals, 6 eggs, lightly beaten, 2/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup  brown sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 7 C Challah bread and 1/3 cup powdered sugar, Creme Cheese Topper - 3/4 cup whipping cream, 1 ounce cream cheese, softened and 1 tablespoon powdered sugar.
