Fruited Grits Dessert Bread with Orange Syrup

5.0 1 Recipe Reviews | Rate this Recipe | 15 Saves
Fruited Grits Dessert Bread with Orange Syrup is a twist on a popular South American dessert. This scrumptious dessert is traditionally prepared with wheat. However, given that corn is a staple throughout this continent, it is not unusual to find this variation prepared with a coarse ground corn (grits). Laced with dried fruit and nuts, this bread is so moist it’s sometimes called a “pudding” in South America, yet is firm enough to cut into slices for serving. The orange syrup drizzled over each slice adds a flavorful touch to this memorable dessert.
