Piña Colada Bread Pudding

In honor of Mardi Gras season, here’s a recipe reminescent of New Orleans. If you’ve ever visited the Crescent City, you’ve no doubt tasted some of their famous bread puddings. I remember at one convention I attended there, I was served bread pudding three out of four days! ~ Marlys
