Chow Bella, the food blog from Phoenix New Times featured my brioche chocolate bread pudding in their holiday series “What Are You Baking?”
You can find the recipe and a short interview about what I’m baking this holiday season, along with my New Year’s food resolution on the Chow Bella Blog.
Thanks Chow Bella!
Oh… one thing I didn’t mention in the recipe is why I cut the bread cubes in such large hunks. (Seriously, they look ridiculously large, but there is a method to my madness.)
First, it looks visually stunning, with large hunks of browned bread. That’s because the bread floats to the top and crisps up nicely.
Second, all that crisping means there’s an interesting texture contrast between the crunchy bread and the soft custard underneath. All those chocolate chunks? Well, they just add flavor.
Try it. You’ll love it.
