Mistakes are Delicious!

It must have been the early hour (that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it).

Friday night I prepared a sweet dough for Cinnamon Rolls for the fam to enjoy on Saturday morning.

So bright and early on Saturday I made the filling and let them rise one more time and baked them.

"What's the problem Lain?"

Well the problem is, it didn't register that I was baking them in the wrong dish.

They were good but they were very, eh, firm and bread stick like. After I was all done I finally figured out that I had baked them on a cookie sheet instead of a 2 inch deep pan.

All the sticky, gooey goodness typical of cinnamon buns--gone!

What to do, what to do??

Ah, ha!

I tore the cinnamon rolls into pieces and turned it into--

Bread Pudding!

Oh baby! So good! Sometimes mistakes are very delicious :)

Now I promise this isn't turning into a cooking blog but I've been in a baking mood.

So, if you have any cinnamon rolls or other bread just sitting around begging to be made into dessert, have a go at some Bread Pudding. Anyone within smelling distance will not complain!

So here they are in their "before" state:


And now, torn up into pieces with 4 T melted butter drizzled on top:


Some frothy goodness courtesy of 4 eggs, 2 C milk, 3/4 C sugar, vanilla and cinnamon:


Just dump that into your pan 'o bread:


And voila,

Bake at 350˙ for 45-60 minutes. This is for church tonight so I don't have an "After" picture yet. I will try to remember to snap one before we leave.

I would take a picture of the pan I baked last night but that's a little, ya know, gone :)

(burp)

Oh, excuse me! How rude...

Okay here it is... I wish you could smell it! Alright, gotta go.

That is a very tastey misteake. I love that almost anything can be salvaged and turned into an edible delight:) Good job girl!!! I have seen a recipe for Krisp Kreme bread pudding...but I don't dare.

I think I must be the only person on the planet that doesn't like Krispy Kreme donuts. They are way too sweet for me. blah

But for those inclined towards the "Krispy" I'm sure the Bread Pudding version of it would be yummy.

Lainikins you amaze me! Ingenious! But, um, this clearly is not a "lowfat" recipe so I won't be making it. You see, I've already gained about 5 pounds this week from my yummy trip to CA. But, your pictures did make my mouth water! Delicious!

Lainie said...

Uh, definitely not low fat. But man it was good!

Welcome back!! Hope your Thanksgiving was good. Looking forward to hearing all about it :)
