Bread pudding was one of my favorite desserts growing up! Typically made out of day old bread and a simple custard, it is a quick and easy dessert to throw together. When Annie’s Homegrown reached out to ask me about trying their new certified organic Cinnamon Rolls I knew that I wanted to try using them in my own vegan bread pudding! It turns out that was a VERY good idea! Between the boys and I, we polished off our Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding in less than 24 hours. Yep. It’s that good.
^^^ My kiddos can’t get enough of these adorable bunnies!
These Cinnamon Rolls are delicious! It’s been a while since I had one of these “whack and bake” tubes—I think many are accidentally vegan though—and it was really fun to hear that *POP* that I remembered as I opened the tube! As much as I would like to make everything from scratch, with two busy boys it’s just not practical all of the time, and I love that companies like Annie’s Homegrown have yummy organic options that are either premade or quick to prepare! Indulging in comfort food doesn’t have to mean compromising your standards! I always keep a stash of Annie’s Homegrown goodies in my purse for meltdowns when we go out—my boys love their treats!
^^^ Major fans!
We popped these rolls into the oven and less than 20 minutes later we had cinnamon rolls! The boys were in heaven, using their fingers to scrape up every bit of frosting! They would be perfect for a frazzled morning when you don’t have time for anything—pop them in the oven and they’ll be done by the time you jump out of the shower. Breakfast that your kids will actually eat!
But for special occasions, when you want to take it a step further, you’ll love my semi-homemade Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding. Toasted organic cinnamon roll bites, a creamy coconut milk custard, a crumble topping, and of course, classic cinnamon roll frosting! From start to finish you can have this made in about an hour. Not only is it a perfect cozy dessert for chilly evenings, it’s a delicious breakfast for a special occasion….say Thanksgiving morning?
My Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding is amazing fresh out of the oven! But….it’s also amazing the next day—straight out of the fridge. Yep, cold. It almost seems fudgier? If a cinnamon roll bread pudding could be fudgey? I don’t know—you’ll have to take my word for it and make it because it is just so good. When you make it be sure to take a picture and tag me in it! I love to see what you’re up to in the kitchen! @frieddandeions // #frieddandelions
