Lauren at Upper East Side Chronicle chose the Four Star Chocolate Bread Pudding for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie.
I made a loaf of Challah to use for my bread pudding. I made a half recipe using two 4x4 pans. I cut and toasted my Challah, as Dorie suggests, and thought it took to the pudding quite nicely. I did add a little extra bread though just to be extra sure that the custard was soaked up.
I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the recipe. Sadly, I am not much of a bread pudding fan to begin with, so I was mostly expecting not to like this at all. As it turns out, I did like it. I can't say I loved it, because this just isn't really my thing, but it was good.
What I can say though, from my friends who love bread pudding, is that they thought this was amazing. They raved that it was incredible, so there you go!
