Bailey’s Irish Nut Coffee Bread Pudding: My mom’s favorite after dinner coffee drink with Bailey’s Irish Cream and Amaretto turned into her favorite dessert, bread pudding.
Whenever my parents and I go out to a nice restaurant my mom usually finishes her meal with a Bailey’s Irish Nut Coffee.
Except no one has heard of that and then she has to explain what it is.
It’s coffee with a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream and Amaretto, topped with whipped cream and a dash of nutmeg.
My mom got it once at a restaurant and has ordered it ever since.
But like I said, no one has really heard of it.
It is really good.
Before each visit out to my house my mom says make sure you have all the ingredients for Bailey’s Irish Nut Coffee.
So I do.
And she never makes one. 🙂
So this year as I sat staring at all the ingredients not being used again I decided I would make her a bread pudding.
Bread pudding is her favorite.
So off I went to make Bailey’s Irish Nut Coffee Bread Pudding.
I’ve already made her Bailey’s Irish Nut Coffee Fudge before. Which she liked a lot.
She was a fan of the bread pudding as well. 🙂
If you can’t find Butter-flake rolls you can use Hawaiian Rolls instead or Croissants.
