I admit, I don’t often eat Kripsy Kreme donuts, except for the “special occasion” in the household, like a birthday, or the “evil little neighbor” selling a box to fundraise for his or her sports team. But last weekend while eating out with my family at Lulu’s in Gulf Shores (and watching my older daughter work her magic at Eastern Shore Inflatables’ Water Balls), I spied it… the most confusing, maybe even strangely delicious menu item I had seen in a long time.
Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding. What? Could my calorie intake handle such a dish? I wasn’t going to be the one to try it, but I was secretly hoping that someone in our party would order it to share. It never happened, so to this moment, I still have no idea what this recipe tastes like. But in hopes that someone will tell me all about it, I went on a Google search to find a similar, free version to share with all of you.
Here it goes. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, but don’t NOT comment with how glorious it tastes (please)!
