Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding recipe. I was skeptical, but when we tried it at Boucherie on Friday, I was impressed! There are a few recipes online, but this one looks best.

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

Adapted; Jean Anderson-A Love Affair with Southern Cooking

2 1/2 cups half & half

3 large eggs

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup Jack Daniels, optional

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

8 Krispy Kreme honey glazed donuts cut into 1 inch pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter and prepare a 2 1/2 quart souffle dish.
Whisk eggs, half & half, sugar, J Daniels, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt until mixed well.
Add the donuts and press done so that it absorbs the liquid, let sit for about 5 minutes.
Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 40-50 minutes. It will be softish in the center.
Serve right away, with a side of fresh fruit along with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or a touch of heavy cream to pour over.

OMG that recipe includes JD and peaches. I didn't think that thing could be made more delicious....

I guess the only part that confuses me is that it says "optional" about the whisky. How would it work to not add whisky to things? Do you just use gin instead or something?

Brandy, not gin. Bourbon, also good.

I was window shopping on Chartres or Royal and saw something called New Orleans Pecan Liqueur. (Yes I window shop at liquor stores, so?) I bet that would rule in this. Wish I'd bought some now.

Okay, wow. Now I really wish I'd gotten a bottle.

You know, I think we're just all going to have to go back and finish all the drinking we didn't even know we had to do. Also, eating.

This is obviously the only sane option.

Just say when! Maybe we should all think about Tales of the Cocktail next year?

If by next year you mean next month.
