Bread pudding isn’t usually on our repertoire. Hubs doesn’t like sweet sides. He grew up with savory lukshen and potato kugel as standard sides. I grew up with sweet lukshen with fruit and sugar. My mom put raisins in basically everything; his mom doesn’t put raisins in oatmeal (raisin) cookies.
So far I am very happy with the results of my Cooking with Joy expedition. I have gotten to taste new flavors and have learnt that lots of things that you would think are a patchke, take barely any time at all.
This bread pudding was very quick and easy to make. I was kind of expecting it to be super sweet and sticky, but it didn’t come out that way at all. I followed the recipe to a tee, the only difference was I used whole wheat challah.
The pudding was good, just to me lacked the sticky sweetness I was hoping for. As I read on, I saw there was a recipe for a glaze. BINGO that’s just what it needed. The glaze gave the pudding what I was looking for. I had a few portions and Hubs ate the rest!
