Dear SOS: I’ve never been a fan of bread pudding, but the one served at the Los Angeles Police Academy Cafe is divine. Is a recipe possible?
Dear Glena: We got a quick-alert response to your culinary 911 from the L.A. Police Revolver and Athletic Club, home to the cafe, which is open to the public Mondays through Fridays. The club, formed by police officers in 1938, is at 1880 N. Academy Drive, near Dodger Stadium. In this recipe, the cafe uses orange juice instead of Bourbon, but either will do. The sauce is strong, so if you use Bourbon, you may want to reduce the amount.
