{twd} four star chocolate bread pudding

This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe is Four Star Chocolate Bread Pudding. And while the title may be all about the chocolate, for me, this one was all about the bread. I started by baking up a couple of loaves of Dorie's brioche. I brought one to a friend's apartment for brunch, and let the other dry out for this pudding. After hearing that other members of the group found the pudding to be too custardy, I decided to add a little more bread than the recipe called for. After all, I didn't want all of my hard work to go to waste. The result? I overdid it with the bread juuust a bit. My chocolate bread pudding turned out more like chocolate bread bars. And while they may have been a little dry, they were still delicious. To see some more traditional puddings, be sure to check out the TWD blogroll.

Making your own brioche is pretty impressive.

I've made Nancy Silverton's chocolate bread pudding for a potluck and it made a hit.

I really enjoyed this, especially warmed up with chocolate syrup or cream anglaise!

Mmm, chocolate bread bars sound good to me. I don't believe you can overdo anything with bread! :-) I love bread pudding but have never made it - so it always seems like such a rare treat. This recipe looks great!
