The Up side of Down….

*Last day of April. I seriously cannot get over how fast the month goes by…unless I am on a treadmill then it seems to last forever. Maybe they say the key to living a long life is the treadmill because it just feels like you are there forever. :)

*I like to leave dead flies in the windowsills as a warning to any bugs who might be thinking about coming into the house. It’s like hey let’s check out this house it looks nice…oh wait…is that Chuck? Chuck buddy what happened? OMG you are dead Chuck. They killed Chuck we can’t go in there. Morbid I know. And don’t worry I don’t think bugs can talk. Plan to torture and mess with me yes if they are spiders, but talk no.

*I wish I liked camping. I mean real camping the cheap kind. I used to like it as a kid until I realized peeing in the woods isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and I really do like a shower vs. a film of dirt. I like the kind of camping that has a rustic cabin. And by rustic I mean this.

Anyway I wish I liked it since it is a fairly cheap way to vacation.

*I have the best friends. No I mean that. People say that. But really. I’m getting to have my wedding basically because I have the best friends any human being could possibly have. The way they all have stepped up to volunteer to do things is overwhelming me with gratitude and joy.

*And speaking of my friends, one of my most favorite of them is trying to raise money for her March of Dimes walk this weekend. She has an amazing son Ray San who was born at 24 weeks…yes you read that right…24 weeks. He started off at 1 pound 11 ounces and today is a thriving and fun loving boy. If you want to help out you can do that here or you can just go read about her little miracle.
*A little while back Red Star Yeast sent me some yeast to use and the other day I made brioche. This recipe in fact. I made it with the full intention of making bread pudding because it is my favorite dessert and I had not had it in a long time.

Combine that with my small obsession (which I haven’t shared on here because I eat before I photograph) with all things pineapple upside down cake. Now I have made individual pineapple upside down bread pudding awhile back. And that was good. This is a different version of that. Not sure which version I like better since it has been over three years since I made the last version. The last version is self-saucing as were this one has a brown sugar sauce that you pour over it.

  1. What a luscious looking pudding! I’m drooling now…



  2. Hi

    Did you use fresh or stale brioche bread in this recipe.

  3. I have a whole bunch of Pineapple, waiting to go bad… not anymore!

  4. Hahaha omg I love that part about the flies. I’m glad no one is at lab yet to have heard me laugh like a maniac.

    @jackie it can be either

  6. Oooo, yummy! Did you mean to have your brioche recipe linked? I thought where you say “This recipe in fact” might have been linked. I remember some of your other brioche posts, I can always go search it out. ;)

    And yes, peeing in the woods is not all it is cracked up to be. Especially when you decide to pee on a hornet’s nest. Did you know a kid can fly with their trousers half up? :D

  7. Peabody says:

    Yes Kelly I did mean to link it!

  8. Some of my most favorite things, all in one dessert. I wish this was my dinner!!

  9. Peabody says:

    It was my dinner twice….

  10. Oh, I meant I didn’t see the actual hotlink for the brioche, was it your cinnamon swirl brioche? The only link I see is for the march of dimes. What a precious and scary picture! So glad there is a happy almost five year old at the end of that story.

  11. My 4 year old asked me she we were going to go camping the other day. I told him never. He asked why. I replied that mommy needs indoor plumbing.

  12. This is a drool worthy treat :) oh my goodness, this looks fabulous!

  13. I made this today and it is AMAZING!!!!! I made the brioche from scratch last night (that takes patience as it has to rise twice). It was an easy recipe and I took some to 2 of my friend’s who live in the neighborhood at 9:30 pm! It was so good they just had to try it while it was still hot!

  14. Made this last night and oh my goodness it is delicious!!! The only change I made was that I used stale Cinnamon Bread that I’d made earlier in the week. Also this recipe was extremely easy, will be making it again. Thanks so much for posting this.

  15. I made this this morning for an afternoon dessert and it was a hit. I live in France so finding brioche was easy. I will be doing this one again because drool, lol

  16. This looks so decadent! What I love is that everyone says its very easy to make, thanks for sharing Peabody!
