Paula Deen's Bread Pudding


I really miss the Food Network in Canada.  Down here there is a lot of Paula Deen, Emeril Legasse and the Neely's.  Paula's recipes are so full of fat and sugar!  And get those rings off your fingers when you are working in the kitchen!  Oh well, they love her.  What do I know.  I am using leftover panettone from a few days ago.  I thought it would be fun to try.  But for our peace of mind, I have drastically reduced the fat, sugar and eggs in the pudding, and it is still very rich.  You could also make the accompanying sauce but I doubt you will need it.  Personally, I would use either the pecan topping or the sauce.  Or, if you would like to keep the calories somewhat reasonable, use neither.

  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 2 large beaten eggs
