Outrageously Delicious Tiramisu Bread Pudding

November 17, 2013

The first time I took a bite of Tiramisu as a college student in Italy I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Those espresso and rum soaked ladyfingers that were nestled amongst creamy clouds of sweet mascarpone cream then dusted with bittersweet chocolate, oh my!, it was surprisingly rich and light at the same time. Since that first taste I've been a sucker for tiramisu. In this delicious recipe, ladyfingers are replaced with bread (such as brioche or challah) to create a decadent tiramisu bread pudding.

Heaven.
