The ingredients: Plump raisins folded into soft, doughy bread and topped with a bourbon-butter sauce and fresh whipped cream makes this unfussy dessert a great example of what a bread pudding should be.
Bang for your buck: The large portion is enough to share with friends or indulge in all your own (we recommend the latter).

The ingredients: Flaky bread gives way to sour cherries tempered by a sweet white chocolate sauce tinged with a hint of mint. Sounds complicated, but the layers of unexpected flavors pay off.
Bang for your buck: This dessert is so decadent and tart that we’re fine with the fact that it’s smaller than GLBC’s version.
