My husband and I traveled to Dublin a few years ago. One thing we noticed was that the people were so inviting and hospitable. Seriously, those words fell from our lips every day during our visit. Hospitality stood out like a beautiful bouquet.

It was our first time there, and our first time to meet some of my husband’s family, and we relished the love that we received.

    Thanks

    Whipping cream is listed twice but the video shows heavy cream. Is this a mistake? Also, where is the sauce recipe?

    • Sandy

      Brandi, the first few ingredients are for the sauce. You can make it ahead if you need to, and warm up later to drizzle over the warm bread pudding!

    Goodness gracious, that looks yummy! Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts. Time-consumine, but worth every minute. Key lime bread pudding is my favorite, but anything with chocolate is good, too. I’ll have to file away this recipe for sure!
