Low Carb Cherry Almond Bread Pudding. Somewhere long ago and far away I was dabbling in the kitchen (better dabbling than babbling) and just kind of came up with this recipe. Cherries and almonds are one of those food marriages made in heaven so I thought I would run a yes, high carby version of this as a special dessert item in the restaurant and it was a hit. People would come back in to have a cup of coffee and bread pudding and I didn’t have it. So…I decided to put it on the menu permanently and it stayed as a customer favorite. Here it is in its low carb form and I absolutely cannot tell any difference and since you never had my restaurant version you definitely won’t know either.
Bread pudding begs for a sauce…any sauce…please, just give me a sauce and this is the way I served it in the restaurant. So simple…so good…just warm & drizzled with a little heavy cream or better yet Sweetened Condensed Milk
I don’t care how you cut it traditional bread pudding has never been low carb but just a half cup with Carbalose Flour Bread is terrific and even a cup is only 6.8g net carbs and after a filling dinner?…I doubt you could begin to eat a full cup of this.
This is one of my easier recipes to make and you will need Carbalose Flour Bread cubes for it.
