Chocolate Bread Pudding

9/18/11


Throwing away old bread is a sin.  A SIN, I SAY!  See that bread above?  It's old hot dog and hamburger buns, leftover from a friend's BBQ.  He asked if anyone wanted it, I pounced, and then it sat in a bag in my pantry for over a week.  I was close to throwing it out myself, and then I remembered that if you take old bread and let it swim in a tubby of cream, sugar and eggs, it can turn into something wonderful.

Something like this (and yes I just said "tubby")...


Chocolate Bread Pudding might be my favorite dessert.  Carbs, dairy, chocolate... all soaked together to create this ooey, gooey, luscious treat.  I tried out this recipe and enjoyed it, however I think I let my bread soak for too long which ended up drying out the pudding slightly.  The recipe recommends just an hour, but I got distracted by a gentle bird outside my window, harvesting a seed, it's delicate wings a flutter and- not really, I was distracted by TV.   

Cream and sugar...


Into the cream, these guys went...


Bread, meet chocolate...


This sort of looks like wet, meaty dog food they show in those gourmet pet commercials... I would make a GREAT food critic...


Dog food with marshmallows on top?  Butter, it's butter...


I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top prior to baking, cause I'm cool like that.  Chocolate Bread Pudding...

far more work than your bread pudding, but my all time favorite (without having tasted the one you tried) is a mango coconut bread pudding. can finish off the whole recipe by myself. whoops. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/COOKING-LIGHTS-MANGO-COCONUT-BREAD-PUDDING-50006494

oh, and funny story about the recipe is that the girl who posted it at epicurious nabbed it from me when i made it for her years ago. i stumbled across her posting online when i was trying to create an online catalogue of my tattered print out recipe book.

That looks insanely good! I snorted laughing when I read the bird-watching line. Ha!

Rose - I will check that out, even though she stole from you.

Katy - thanks! I finally took that note from my teacher and started to manipulate with iPhoto : )

I'm guessing your oven looks so clean b/c you put the pyrex under the baking dish. Smart girl.
