When the craving for chocolate hits, try this Chocolate-Cinnamon Bread Pudding. The warm melted chocolate makes it a definite comfort food, while the whole wheat bread and evaporated skim milk adds to its nutritional punch.
Bread pudding is a dessert that was born of necessity long ago. It was a recipe cooked up by thrifty homemakers to use every bit of leftovers in interesting ways to feed their families. This bread pudding, from an old Amish cookbook, is absolutely incredible. It is definitely a comfort food, and can be made richer with cinnamon sauce or caramel sauce. You can also substitute berries in place of the raisins for a delicious change of pace. It is a fairly basic bread pudding recipe, but it is truly the soul satisfying treat that most people crave. Nothing beats warm bread pudding on a cold or rainy night. Submitted by LOANKIDD
Tastes so decadent, but is actually a much lighter variation of a classic comfort-food favorite thanks to a few changes in the "custard" mixture.
This recipe idea came to me when I had a couple of day old bagels lying around. I didnt want to waste them so I thought it would be interesting to try and make a bread pudding out of them. Any bagels will do (blueberry or apple cinnamon would be great too), but it just happened that I had 2 cinnamon raisin bagels which worked out really well.
Just a few suggestions:
*If using plain bagels, you may want to add a couple of tablespoons of sugar to your custard mixture and some fresh or dried fruits for a little more flavor.
*Most of the fat in this recipe comes from the addition of walnuts so you can omit the topping altogether, but I really like it!
*Make sure your bagels arent fresh! That will effect the texture of the finished product. If you don't have any stale bagels lying around, you can lightly toast the bagels or cut up pieces the night before and allow to sit out until they're firm.
