{not my} nutella banana challah bread pudding

in rambling,recipes

I really wish I could count this recipe as my own.

I do.

With all my Everythingtarian heart, soul and head of frizzy, unmanageable hair, I do, I do, I do.

But alas, swapping a loaf of brioche for challah bread, substituting 4 cups of 2% milk for heavy cream + whole milk and omitting hazelnut liqueur from this recipe doesn’t exactly make it an Everythingtarian original. I mean, it would be like swapping a big grab bag of Cheetos for Funyuns, wearing pink flip flops instead of blue, getting 12-inch bleach blonde hair extensions instead of 16-inch ones and calling myself Britney Spears.

No matter how many Vegas quickie weddings I have or gaudy sequined vajayjay-bearing outfits I wear, I am just never going to be the original Ms. Spears.

I’m totally okay with that.

And I am never going to be the original creator of Nutella Banana Brioche Bread Pudding.

I’m okay with that too.

Because Britney is so 2001 (seriously lady, no one cares about you now that you’re not so crazy).

And I was the cool kid at work when I brought in a whole pan of this bread pudding. My co-workers didn’t care who created this most decadent recipe; all they said was that it was mother$*#&$*! delicious.

Oh that looks fabulous!

I recently made what I called Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese frosting (recipe on my site) but they are seriously the best things ever. I LOVE nutella! And would love to help you with the challah bread pudding. Did i mention Scott’s jewish and the challah around here never looks quite like that :)

I’ve never had bread pudding. Weird right? Probably not… I had also never had cheese curds until I met you…
