I was looking for something fun to make with the kids for my wife on Mother’s Day and came across this great recipe for Bread Pudding over on Delicious Shots. We changed it up a little bit to use sliced challah but otherwise stayed true to this delicious suggestion.
The kids were able to get their hands into helping out which always wins them over. I had them cracking eggs, measuring ingredients, and breaking up challah pieces. Served up with powdered sugar and a big scoop of ice cream, I don’t need to tell you this dish was a hit with everyone!
