Cherry Jubilee Bread PuddingHave you had your fill of cherries yet? Yes, that’s not a serious question, of course not, can you really have enough of this delicious fruit when it’s only around for such a fleeting time. They’ve actually only begun showing up in the markets near me about two weeks ago, I know, so I’m getting in my cherry fix as much as I can. Freshly eaten as a snack, or even an entire meal while flambéing even more of these cherries for bread pudding. Yes, not only are we making the classic and fancy dessert restaurants often create into an elaborate fire show, but were pouring this heavenly cherry sauce atop decadent bread pudding cups.Cherry Jubilee Bread PuddingThis weekend is Memorial Day, do you have plans to hit the beach or barbecue with loved ones? If you are grilling it up, as I am, then you know I’m already figuring out what sweet treats to bring to the party. Unless it’s a pie, because there’s nothing more like kicking off summer with a beautiful pie, when it comes to outdoor gatherings, I perfect serving individual desserts. It’s perfect for passing around, you can eat it while having your summer cocktail in the other hand, and there’s no fuss of a plate and cutlery, when you could be playing a fun game or just relaxing. Cherry Jubilee Bread PuddingBread pudding isn’t your typical Memorial Day dessert, but it’s a classic, and when cherries are a plenty, you must eat them as much as possible and use them however many ways you can cook them! I had an extra loaf of my Easter favorite, Portuguese sweet bread purposely frozen with the intent of making bread pudding. This traditional Easter bread is like an Brioche and Challah, so you already know it’s going to delicious.

I could’ve made french toast but I wanted to make a dessert I could share, especially with my cousins just having their first child, there was much to celebrate! But if you look through these photos and just crave french toast, you could still use the liquid base to coat your bread slices. Then finish off with the cherries jubilee. Now that’s a great Memorial Day breakfast.

Don’t be fooled by how easily this bread pudding can be cut into, once you bite in, you’ll be able to taste how soft and moist the bread becomes once soaked and baked. But my favorite part are the cherries, with the faintest taste of rum, they’re the fresh seasonal  sweetness that pulls this pudding together.
