“We Brits consider this ‘pudding,’” says cookbook author and TV star Nigella Lawson of her buttery, sweet dessert. “Think bread pudding, only so much more luxurious. When I make this for supper, we eat nothing else. Why would one need to?”
This gooey bread pudding made with caramel-like dulce de leche from Latin America is so much more than the sum of its five parts. To add even more flavor, throw in a handful of fresh or frozen raspberries or blueberries before baking.
“This recipe was created over a breakfast of—what else?—Krispy Kremes,” says chef Govind Armstrong. “I was planning the menu for RokBar in Hollywood and trying to come up with a fun, creative dessert.” The espresso-infused whipped cream makes a brilliant, and equally decadent, topping.
