Happy Happy Happy Friday!!!! yes, I’m so happy it’s almost the long weekend I’m giving y’all 3 happys today haha. Y’all have big plans for the holiday weekend? I honestly don’t, which is completely fine with me, just looking forward to spending time with some good peeps (does anyone even say peeps anymore when not referring to cute marshmallows?).
Speaking of spending time with people, in case you’re planning on having company to stay over this weekend I’m bringing y’all the perfect and super easy thing you can make for them for breakfast. Even better you can totally prep this and have it ready to go in the oven first thing in the morning.
I do want to point out that this has an amazing and wonderful crumble topping to go on it but I’m going to go ahead and type it ‘crumble’ because it is so darn humid here & even with the A/C blasting & using super cold butter it totally un-crumbled the topping.
When the ‘crumble’ topping looks more like cookie dough, it’s not as aesthetically pleasing, but it absolutely doesn’t effect the taste. This bread pudding is wonderfully gooey, with just the right amount of crispness on top and ding dang easy to make, I highly recommend y’all get on this ASAP. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend, and as always thank you so much for stopping by!
cut up bread into your pan…
egg, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt mixture…
pour this mixture onto your bread…
cover with stretch wrap…
time to make some ‘crumble’, butter…
then brown sugar, salt, flour, cinnamon…
again, this should be crumbly, but no fear, still delicious…
several hours later (or overnight) put this topping on your bread pudding…
