Who knew that there were so many recipes for bread pudding? My wife has always loved bread pudding on Christmas morning. So when I saw this book at the library, I had to check it out. I am very glad I did.
"New-Fangled, Old-Fashioned Bread Puddings: Sixty Recipes for Delectable Sweet and Savory Puddings, Puffs, Stratas, and Bread SoufflÃ©s" is packed with all kinds of goodies. There is something here for everyone (unless you hate bread for some reason).
There are, of course, the sweeter choices. Recipes like Crunchy Apple Bread Pudding, Coconut Rum Custard, and Fudgy Chocolate Hazelnut Bread Pudding will definitely appeal to those with a sweet tooth.
For those looking for something a little heartier, selections abound. The Eggplant, Basil, and Parmesan Bread Pudding with Charred Tomato Vinaigrette is a meal in itself. The Welsh Rarebit Single Strata and the Winter Spiced German Steamed Bread Pudding are textbook definitions of comfort food.
There are so many great recipes here that I could go on endlessly about them. Yet to do so would be wasting your time. Instead, I encourage you to get this book right now--and start cooking! You will not be disappointed.
I recommend "New-Fangled, Old-Fashioned Bread Puddings" very highly.
