Can that be my whole “schpeel?” If not, then you should make this and serve it to your most beloved friends and family (save
some a lot for yourself as well). The whole WORLD needs to know of this deliciousness! I am a “sweets” person, so this Pinterest Pin had me; at well, the photo of this dessert.
Pin Review = 5 stars
Chuck over at the Knead for Bread has truly out done himself. Bravo! The combination of flavors is magnificent, it wasn’t super “puddingy,” which I like; when I served it over the holidays, I got a ton of compliments. People were also very impressed with the sauce for the pudding, an amazing addition. It does require some Bailey’s Irish Creme, but don’t worry, you won’t become inebriated by this topping. But truth be told, you will be intoxicated by it’s richness and charm ;)
Note: The recipe simply says to use “thick sliced bread.” I didn’t really know what that meant, so I used White Mountain Bread from the Publix Bakery and it worked just fine.
This is not as much of a labor of love as you would assume. It does take effort, but it’s not the most time consuming thing I’ve ever done. Also, the fact that I knew something fabulous would be fashioned out of my handiwork, put an extra spring in my step!
The Bailey’s Sauce is a little scary to make because there are eggs involved and at one point he warns that there is a risk of accidentally “scrambling” the eggs in the scalding whipping cream. But since I am a novice and I did not scramble my eggs, you should be fine too!
I hope you make this and love it as much as I did, I would love to hear what you think!
