Brioche Pear Bread Pudding…with Chocolate!

I don’t feel like as American’s we grew up knowing much about Bread Pudding (at least I didn’t). So, when I came across this recipe by Martha Stewart I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I was initially drawn to it because she uses Brioche bread, and I love Brioche bread (who doesn’t). If you haven’t tried it, Brioche is a French pastry bread that has a high butter and egg content so it is deliciously fluffy and flaky at the same time. It is perfect for dessert recipes, or even just for French toast. In the South, bread puddings are typically served with whiskey or use, served warm, and with a nice dollop of fresh whip cream. There’s no whisky in this recipe, but I think Martha makes up for it with the chocolate! Also, and I know I say this a lot, but, this recipe is so EASY and looks so FANCY!  Read more…
