You guys know that I LOVE cheesecake right?  And by “love” I mean I am kinda…sorta..ok, completely obsessed with the stuff. I want it all time, on everything, in everything forever and ever the end.

Espeically in the form of breakfast.

Then, something happened.  During our 10 days road trip to Florida from Washington State, me and Mr. FFF stopped in New Orleans to do a little sight seein’.  That day I experienced something that COULD rival cheesecake.

It hurts my heart to admit that there might be something out there that could rival my beloved, desserty best friend, but I am all about honesty here at FFF.

I tried real, Southern bread pudding for the very first time in my life.

With whiskey sauce.

You know those cartoons where the eyeballs explode out of the characters faces? Yea, my tastebuds..they did that.  Whoa.

I knew I had to re-create this moist, soft, sweet and need-this-in-my-face-yesterday kind of deliciousness…with a healthy twist of course.

    A couple of years ago, I went on a road trip and we stayed at the Irma hotel in Wyoming, where they serve whiskey bread pudding for breakfast…it was the most MAGNIFICENT way to start the day! Bread pudding is definitely a game changer and your pina colada version is making me salivate like craaaazy!! Love this, lady!

      Gah Wyoming…the state of windmills!
      BUT…FOR BREAKFAST! At least the State has 1 redeeming quality.
      Thanks girlfriend! :)

    YUM! This looks so stinking delicious… my hubbys mom makes him a pineapple upside down cake every year for his birthday and he literally eats the whole thing in one sitting.

    May have to try this instead =)

      I have never had pineapple upside down cake…but it’s on my “to try” list. Specifically the pineapple upside cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory!
      It’s always good to switch it up ;)…plus, whiskey is a man drink! :) Have a good weekend lady!

    I did a recipe for Baileys bread pudding over Christmas and I just knew that there were some other alcohol inspired ways to make this pudding even more delicious- this is definitely a whole new level. Love it :)

    Oh my god this is too funny! Taylor I just came from Erin’s blog and commented on this recipe, I missed the part that it was your recipe. Then I came here and saw it and I was confused for a sec because it was the same exact thing! This is a wonderful recipe and I will be trying it soon! I love all the tropical flavors and the fact that it’s a skinny recipe!

    Wow, this bread pudding looks incredible! Love the pina colada flavor and that it’s a skinnier version with coconut oil and light coconut milk – it sounds delicious!
