Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding Muffins

I’ve never been a fan of bread pudding…its mushy, gushy, and all around too soft for my liking. However, my husband loves it, so a few weeks ago I attempted to make a crock pot version. I took a tiny, tiny, TINY bite to see if it was good and the texture made it hard to swallow…yuck! The flavor wasn’t too bad though. But the true test was letting my husband taste it. Of course he said it was good but there was no sparkle in his eye or rubbing of his belly to assure me it was the best thing ever baked in the history of baking!! And the worst part…he even looked up a rum sauce to add flavor to it…so my crock pot bread pudding was an EPIC FAIL! Needless to say, it did not make it to my blog. I had to redeem myself somehow so I searched for an awesome bread pudding recipe that would put a sparkle back in his eye. I came across this recipe that combines cinnamon rolls and bread pudding. It turns out my husband happens to LOVE cinnamon rolls! I pinned this right away and got the ingredients ASAP. Once I made this I was surprised to find out that I even liked them. They are not too soggy or mushy and they have the perfect cinnamon roll and bread pudding combination flavor. They are 100 times better than the crock pot disaster and my husband loved them too. 🙂 I hope you enjoy them as well!
