Summer Bread Pudding

I am a huge fan of bread pudding, but I have to say, I don't think I have ever made it or eaten it during the summer. It has always seemed to be a fall or winter type of dessert. Until today! I made this Summer Bread Pudding with angel food cake, so it's a bit lighter, and fresh peaches because well,  fresh peaches!! I baked the bread pudding in individual dishes, but it would be great in a large pyrex dish too! The next time I make this I might add a light drizzle of vanilla sauce over the top right before serving. That would be good!

  1. Great a light bread pudding and no raisins, sultanas or currants. I can definitely give this one a try.

  2. This.Looks.Scrumptious! And I LOVE those little DO's. I am going to have to try this!

  3. I love bread pudding, and peaches, so I know I'm gonna love this! I made the mistake of buying an angel food cake from the store and it was horribly dry. This would have been a great way to use it up :)

  4. Really good recipe - We had leftover angel food cake so I did a quick search for angel food cake bread pudding and found this. It was really good, moist and easy! I topped it with peaches and strawberries and added a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar on top before baking.
