Bread pudding... never thought I'd go wack-a-doo, for ... yes, I said bread pudding. But here in Louisiana, it's a staple, a delicacy. We had some recently at a local heavenly restaurant, Lagniappe, with blueberries. Umhmmm, I said blueberries. and that 'heavenly' sauce. 'Sauce' literally. So I went through the recipes, and voila' - c'est magnifique.
I found it in a recipe chronicle book I purchased since arriving in Louisiana, Cajun, A Culinary Tour of Louisiana. This fine cookbook has plenty of delicious recipes that include bread pudding, gumbo, & include numerous local ingredients: pecans, sweet potatoes, crawfish, shrimp, & so many combinations thereof. The photos are wonderful- full of local culture, places famous like, Breaux Bridge & Mulates. Plenty of Plantation photos, the backwater-kind.
So here's a recipe (a good stand-in) for this tasty delictable dessert. Enjoy!
