Lighter Bread Pudding

Can a decadent, rich pudding really be made from plain old white bread? Yes, especially when that bread is drenched in heavy cream and eggs and then drowned in a butter-based caramel sauce. This hearty dessert can weigh in at 800 calories and 30 grams of saturated fat per warm, gooey bowl. Thanks, but no thanks. Our bread pudding is a slimmer, trimmer, and top-rated (by our picky Test Kitchen judges) redesign.

The Classic: 
 843 calories per slice
50.3 grams total fat
30.2 grams saturated fat

The Makeover: 
 300 calories per slice
4.8 grams total fat
2.4 grams saturated fat
