TWD - Apple-Apple Bread Pudding
It's just me. Bread Pudding was not part of my palate development. In my childhood home, there was no such thing as leftover bread. We fought over those delicious nub ends. If we were lucky, a couple of slices would be pulled out for French toast, pan-hot and eggy, slathered with strawberry jam.
Before Dorie, I had never eaten Bread Pudding, after Dorie I can't imagine making it again.
That's not to say this wasn't a delicious dessert - it was. Rich, moist bread with all those lovely caramelized apples and organic apple butter. I spooned on a bit of vanilla yogurt. It was great and I had to be forcibly kept away from the dish. but then I'm still doing Weight Watchers and haven't eaten bread in 7 weeks.
This week's recipe was chosen by the always entertaining blogger Liz. She's got the recipe posted on her blog Cake or Death?
Next time, I'll take cake.
