Pina Colada Bread Pudding

Pina Colada Bread Pudding

Food historians trace the history of bread pudding to the early 11th and 12th centuries, as frugal cooks looked for ways to use stale, leftover bread instead of letting it go to waste. In 13th century England, bread pudding was known as “poor man’s pudding,” as it was a popular dish with the lower classes.

As for me I’m still calling these appelflappen because that’s what they were called where I grew up, even though officialy they are called appel beignets 😉 Appelflappen (beignets) are next to the oliebol the most popular treat on New Years Eve. Ever Dutch family will have some oliebollen and or appelflappen.
