Story Behind The Recipe

Almost everyone loves carrot cake, but making it is such a project! Sometimes you just have this huge craving and you can't motivate yourself to go through the trouble. This solves that problem. This is WAY easier to make than a full carrot cake and it tastes just the same.

Allergy Girl had a nagging craving for carrot cake and absolutely refused to go through the trouble of making one. She also had a craving for bread pudding, so she had the idea to just merge the two and make it easy. This really couldn't get any more easy.

You can make this more healthy by choosing a multigrain bread from Canyon Bakehouse, and by making your own cream cheese glaze. To make a healthy cream cheese glaze, just use a dairy free cream cheese, milk of choice, orange juice, and use about 1 tbsp of maple syrup. If you wanted you could even replace the one tbsp brown sugar in the pudding for maple syrup. Can't get more healthy than that!

If you want a bigger portion for a family get together, just double the recipe and bake for about 40 minutes, then broil for 5. Great for Easter breakfast/brunch! Everyone will love it and people will be impressed by the unique idea! It's a bonus that it satisfies the craving for carrot cake as well. Make sure to take pictures and send them to us! We would love to see how you and your family enjoyed this recipe!
