Diplomatic Pudding

Diplomatic Pudding recipe

In this Diplomatic Pudding recipe you transform day-old bread into this classic Cuban dessert. The combination of evaporated and condensed milks makes this fruit and nut-studded bread pudding extra rich and delicious, whether it’s served warm or chilled. The use of canned fruit in this recipe reflects the popularity of imported canned goods in Cuba during the 1950s.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat sugar in small, heavy-duty saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until dissolved and light brown in color. Quickly pour onto bottom of 9-inch cake pan.

  7. Let cool on wire rack for 15 minutes.
  8. Invert onto a serving platter.
