A Bread Pudding Elvis Would Have Loved
I am addicted to FoodTV. I must have my FoodTV daily or I go a little nutty. (Well...I guess I am to begin with, but that's an entirely different story) I got a glimpse of Paula Deen yesterday and she was doing some Southern BBQ stuff. And then she got to the desert part of the meal. I nearly died. Talk about a little nutty yet completely Southern, she used a recipe sent to her by her friend Bill Nicholson. He has come up with a way to use Krispy Kreme doughnuts that is quite unusual. Now, THIS is a desert fit for Elvis.
