Tuesdays with Dorie- Chocolate Bread Pudding


This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Lauren of Upper East Side Chronicle. To be honest I have never been a bread or rice pudding fan. I think it is a texture issue, we all have our likes and dislikes and pudding (& jello) has never been mine. BUT I have never actually made bread pudding so I thought I would give this week a go.


It was very easy to make, I used gluten free rolls and made a third of the recipe in 2 ramekins. Sadly... this recipe did not change my mind. However, I did enjoy learning how to make it.. the baking process is always enjoyable for me. :) I also could not resist showing off my beautiful Orchid plant. After a wild weekend of weather in Denver.. (some areas got up to 22 inches of snow ..ACK!), spring has finally sprung here. I for one am very excited for some "spring fever" and beautiful weather! :) Despite the fact that this was not a favorite desert, I of course, am looking forward to more TWD adventures.

Lovely orchid! I have family that lives in Boulder and they sent pictures of all of that snow, crazy! I'm sorry that the bread pudding didn't rock your world. As a person that has texture issues with some foods, I know that it's a hard thing to get past. I give you props for trying it!

Beautiful orchids! ...of course bread pudding not being as photogenic as them, it did need that nice dainty plate you put it on! LOL

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it much... even if you did manage to make it look super!

too bad it wasn't a success for you. I agree, I think it is a texture thing.

Wow, that orchid looks amazing - they're so hard to grow! Sorry this didn't change your mind about bread pudding, but I agree - sometimes the baking process makes it all worth it.

What a lovely orchid! I agree, the process of baking is always interesting and almost always fun, no matter what the results.
