“Coffee brings joy to my life and sanity to my family and I like to incorporate the boldest flavor of joy to my cooking, that is why I transformed a simple basic bread pudding recipe into a sophisticated Elite Espresso recipe by adding and mixing the joyful flavor of coffee!”

This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.
