Bread Pudding

Updated: Jun 8

Inspired by Princess Pamela's Soul Food Cookbook

Not everyone is a fan of bread pudding, but I personally love the flavors of this dish. Princess Pamela’s recipe doesn’t particularly use hard- to- find ingredients. The comforting, autumnal spices alongside the tropical notes of the fruit sauce, and the freshness from the mint, create an exciting combination of flavors that I particularly enjoyed.
