Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Dessert: BREAD & BUTTER PUDDING with SPICY SAUCE from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is BREAD & BUTTER PUDDING with SPICY SAUCE!

I love bread pudding, a good one at least. It has to to be moist and flavorful and smothered in a sauce that makes you go back for a second helping. Make it easy to put together, and I’m sold. Honestly, I haven’t made this one in FOREVER, but that will have to change now that I’ve dug this recipe out of my binder to share. It’s just such a delicious treat. I’ll have to make it when there are oodles of people to help me eat it so I can behave on my diet and still get my taste without feeling too guilty. Even making a half portion is too much these days with just me spooning it up. LOL

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

    1. I have another, traditional version of this bread pudding. I just like this one for a “quick and dirty” version when I’m in a hurry and want something for after dinner or when I need a last minute dessert for a party.
