But for some lucky loaves, going stale is just the beginning of a transformation into bread pudding - the ambrosial dessert that is a mainstay finale at Creole restaurants across New Orleans. This recipe comes from a restaurant in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The thick creamy sauce is what makes it a truly memorable dessert.
