Gooey goodness

by V. Vicki , Sanford, FL on Feb. 2007

I love bread pudding. This is good, but it needs a little more chocolate than is recommended so I made a chocolate-rum sauce that was incredible to pour over it. (If you don't want the rum, just use the chocolate!)

Better Than I Could Have Imagined

When I found this recipe in my downloaded collection yesterday I realized I had everything on hand needed. It was easy, quick, and delicious. I used a sugar substitute, sprinkled a few frozen raspberries over each serving, and gave each one a squirt of whipped cream. Wonderful flavor!

I am a purist when it comes to some things, bread pudding being one of them, but this is truly a flavor fest. Very rich and moist. Thanks.
