I love King cake season. It might not love me, but woo, that stuff is good y’all. I find them pretty difficult to make, so I wanted to make something easy not only for myself but for you guys to enjoy too! This is so close to a king cake but is crazy easy to make!

1 pound French bread, cut into cubes
8 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups milk (whole)
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups confectioners sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup condensed milk
heat oven to 350
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients, except the bread
Cube up the bread into 2 inch chunks
Place the bread into the egg mixture and let it sit for 10 minutes, pressing down any pieces that are on top so they all soak up the mixture
Spray a 11x13 baking pan
Pour into the pan
Bake for 60 minutes
In a bowl mix the confectioners sugar, lemon juice and condensed milk
You may need to adjust the measurements to get the consistency/taste you want for the icing
When the bread pudding is finished cooking, allow it to cool completely
Pour the icing and spread all over the top
Decorate it to your liking!
Enjoy :)
