Sweet Potato Bread Pudding Recipe

Do you love bread pudding but are looking for something a little bit different for dessert? Sweet Potato Bread Pudding is a perfect way to jazz up your special occasion dessert. I am one who would never serve a plain dessert without dressing it up, just a bit. I love to add extra spices, glaze, flavored whipped creams and even a drizzle of liqueur to my desserts. This is why Sweet Potato Bread Pudding is the perfect recipe for me. It has the addition of fresh sweet potatoes which makes it interesting, not to mention flavorful and moist.
I can add extra spice, different nuts or sauces. The variations can be endless which I love in a recipe, that way I can make it my own. The best part is... this bread pudding is so darned easy, but it tastes as though you spent all day making it! Your guests will be very impressed!
