Bread pudding is a traditional New Orleans dessert and this low calorie bread pudding recipe is one to celebrate.
It is a lighter version and has shed much of the fat and sugar. Yea!
Whole eggs have been replaced with egg substitute and skim milk along with evaporated skim milk which replaces whole milk and heavy cream.
This is a delicious recipe and is as wonderful as any version using the higher fat ingredients.
