Bread pudding is one of my favorite things on earth. In fact, I’ve never met a bread pudding I didn’t like. I had my boys over for dinner and made this especially for them. They showed up about the time this came out of the oven and as soon as the pictures were taken it was devoured! Normally, I would take the time to make a loaf of brioche myself, but I found this great brioche bread at Sprouts that is so good! If you have a Sprouts store, you must try this bread. It’s already sliced and perfect for french toast and easy to cube for a pan of bread pudding. Adding just a hint of lemon juice to the sweetened whipped cream turned out to be a big hit. Another reason I chose this dessert is because this is my 300th post of An Inspired Cook. I thought this would be the perfect dessert to mark the occasion!

Recently Joe and I spent a long weekend in Detroit. We used to live in a suburb outside of Detroit in the early 90’s but haven’t been back in many years and it felt as if we were going back down memory lane. We had bought tickets months in advance to see the Red Wings play at Joe Louis Arena and were so excited to be in the old building again with all the history and banners and excitement. With hockey being late in the evening we decided to have a big breakfast and a late lunch so we could avoid the greasy vendor food. I have to say we had some of the most fabulous breakfasts ever. We had Eggs Benedict at “Recipes“, more precisely a BLT Benedict and a Lox Benedict which was so satisfying we went back the next day and had it again, oh yes we did! And on our last day we met with some family at the “Breakfast Club” where Joe and I had French Toast. Neither of us could decide so we shared a Triple Berry French Toast and an Oven Baked French Toast which is about 4 inches tall, I kid you not! Ever since our fun filled weekend we’ve been making more late breakfasts on the weekend. Our latest experiment was this Apple Cinnamon French Toast. It tasted every bit as good as it looks!
