TWD: Four Star Chocolate Bread Pudding


I love bread pudding so I was really excited to make this week's recipe. Lauren of Upper east side chronicle made this delicious pick. I don't think that I've ever made bread pudding before but it was so easy that I don't know why I haven't tried making it before! I really liked this bread pudding. It was chocolaty but not too chocolaty and I liked that there was some extra custard on the bottom of the large dish I had made.


I used all whole milk and left out the heavy cream because I didn't have any and I thought that it would be rich enough without it. I used more raisins than called for and also sprinkled some dried cranberries on top. I really liked the dried cranberries in this. I think next time I will just add dried cranberries and leave out the raisins.

This was really good right out of the oven and even better cold. I hate to admit it but I had some for breakfast. Please don't judge unless you've tried this. It's good, it was really good. Anyways go check out what other bakers have done this week.
