Orange & Chocolate Bread Puddings
The aforementioned challah does indeed make excellent french toast. But there was still plenty left for bread pudding, and this recipe from Fine Cooking #62 caught my eye a long time ago. I was too full after dinner last night to eat one for dessert, so I had mine today for breakfast. Coffee and sweets are so good together.
I love the combination of chocolate and orange (oh those dark chocolate crackles!!) but this might have been a little too much chocolate - it overpowered the orange. Still, it's hard to complain about yummy bread pudding for breakfast.
