Mr. Food was on tv the other day showing this recipe for Pink Lemonade Bread Pudding. I thought boy, that sure looks good, but I wondered how it would taste. So today, I decided I was going to try this recipe. So I’m here to share it with you and give it a big thumbs up, if you like the summery taste of pink lemonade and bread pudding. It was delicious. It wasn’t what I expected at all. So my next taste testers was my husband and my mom. I usually have them as my guinea pigs when I try new recipes. They also loved it. So without further ado, here it is.
PINK LEMONADE BREAD PUDDING
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/4 c. granulated sugar
8 leftover hot dog or hamburger buns (can use bread also), cut into 1 inch cubes (about 7 c.)
1/3 c. chopped maraschino cherries
1 c. confectioners’ sugar
2 tsp. maraschino cherry juice
1. Preheat oven to 350° degrees F. Coat a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, granulated sugar, and 3/4 c. lemon juice; mix well. Add bread cubes and chopped cherries; toss gently to mix well. Pour into prepared baking dish.
3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
4. In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar, remaining lemon juice, and cherry juice; mix well. Drizzle over warm bread pudding, or chill until ready to serve.
P.S. I served it with ice cream
Mr. Food is right on with “ooh it’s so good.” Thanks for the recipe. I will be making and sharing it for a long time.
