Today the weather in Chicago was a little damp, a little dreary and a little chilly.
Spring doesn’t necessarily bring bread pudding to mind, but it’s one of my most favorite desserts, no matter what time of year. And I was craving for it.
As the thunder rolled in, I made a simple recipe of my favorite dessert. Using a loaf of French brioche bread (it’s also great with Challah or cinnamon raisin bread), eggs, a little vanilla, heavy cream, sugar and some apples and currants, it’s quite a simple recipe. Of course, you can make this more elaborate if you want. But I just wanted a quick and simple bread pudding to satisfy my craving!
At ten o’clock in the evening, the house smelled so sweet and delicious that my son could not get himself to bed without at least having a small bowl of it! The only thing I regret is forgetting a jar of caramel to drizzle on top!
