Café con Leche Bread Pudding

December 20, 2013


Bread puddings are the perfect holiday desserts.  They are quick, easy and made with ingredients available in your pantry.  My last-minute contribution to any pot luck, holiday dinner or party dish is always this cafe con leche bread pudding. It’s perfect at any time of the year and makes a great brunch treat.

This recipe was developed by accident a few years ago.  Rushing throughout the kitchen as always, I had prepared my recipe for basic bread pudding.  It was ready to go into the oven when all of a sudden, I spilled my freshly brewed cup of coffee into the prepped dish.  Argh!  I had no time to prepare a fresh one, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to place it in the oven.  Something good might turn out from this.

At about the 30 minute mark my kitchen began to smell heavenly.  The aroma of sweet coffee permeated the air.  I was sold just by the smell alone.  I couldn’t wait to try my new creation.

Gevalia® Coffee gives this tasty dessert that right touch of coffee. It’s not overpowering and blends perfectly well with the rest of the ingredients. Give it a try! If you’re a coffee lover like I am, I guarantee you’ll love this one.  To get you started, Gevalia® Coffee is available at Target and you can get $2.00 off with the purchase of 2, 12-ounce Gevalia ground coffees.  These and other coupons for money saving Kraft offers are redeemable exclusively at Target.

Esta receta fue desarrollada por accidente hace unos años. Apurada por toda la cocina, como siempre, había preparado mi receta de budín de pan básico. Estaba listo para hornear cuando, de repente, se me derramo mi taza de café recién hecho en el molde ya listo para el horno. Argh! No tuve tiempo de preparar uno nuevo, así que de todos modos lo metí al horno. Quizás algo bueno pueda resultar de esto.

Más o menos al minuto 30, mi cocina empezó a oler a un aroma celestial. El aroma del café dulce impregnaba el aire. Con el agradable olor solamente, no aguantaba a probar mi nueva creación.
