A local restaurant is known for its white chocolate bread pudding. Bread pudding of all varieties is the go to dessert in most of South Louisiana restaurants . I took several recipes and tweaked it till I liked it and this is what I came up with. This is super yummy and rich. Its probably one of the most decadent bread pudding I have had.
