Carrot Bread Pudding

Last week I made a carrot bread pudding.  I thought it would be quite tasty adding the carrots, pineapple and nuts to the bread filling.  I have in the past made a peach bread pudding plus a pumpkin one.

I made this carrot bread pudding last night and added cream cheese frosting.

 I wanted to use my new decorative Nordic Ware Crown bundt pan. You can purchase it HERE.

To make the carrot curls, I used my Carrot Curler and Peeler.

  1. Hi Linda,
    OMG this looks and sounds so delish. Love that carrot curler. So fun. Have a great week. xoxo Kris

  2. Man, that looks good! I had "Hawaiian bread pudding" once in Maui and it was very similar to your recipe but used macadamia nuts instead of walnuts. It was so delicious that I went bavk to the restaurant again and had it a second time, LOL! Also, I lust after all things Nordic Ware. But I have never actually bought a pan because then I would bake too much and eat too many carbs, alas. So I just go to a local kitchen store that carries a huge selection of Nordic Ware and spend a while fondling the pans.

    1. Thanks Debra. I bet the Hawaiian version was quite yummy. I can just see you fondling the cake pans. LO

  3. I want me a carrot curler now! LOL! I have never heard of this dish. Thanks for sharing. Happy Wednesday dear Linda. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. What an impressive looking cake you've made! It is definitely a huge wow to serve up on your table!
