Chocolate Bread Pudding...


OK, not my favorite and I like bread pudding. I think it was the bread I used, couldn't find brioche or challah; besides I only wanted to make a 1/3 recipe. I used Texas Toast bread because it is sliced thick, about 1"; but I feel it would have been better with the suggested bread. The chocolate didn't do it for me, I like a more traditional bread pudding. DH said it was OK and finished the bowl, LOL. I only get a taste (very small) of everything I have been making lately; I have a competition next Saturday and my eating has to be perfect, damn. But, on Sunday look out!!!

Your pudding looks lovely! I am not a big bread pudding fan either, but my husband loves it.

It wasn't the best thing I have ever eaten either.

Too bad it wasn't a success. I didn't like it much, but I think it is because I'm not a bread pudding fan. I liked the taste, just not the texture.

It was rated "not bad but not a hit" in our house. Funny, my opinion was just the opposite of pinkstripes -- I liked the texture but not the taste. Maybe with no chocolate and cinnamon-rum-raisin flavoring?

Sorry you didn't love it, but at least you tried. Maybe it was for the best that you didn't love it so you didn't feel too bad about not getting to eat much before your competition :)

Well, you saved yourself a whole bunch of calories. that's one way of viewing it. I think it would be wise to wait until you make next weeks selection. I hear its good. Good Luck on your competition.
