And the answer is......... yes. My attempt at bread pudding WAS doomed from the start. Computer crashes and tornadoes didn't stop me from trying. The recipe "Old Fashioned Bread Pudding" is an egg custard with the sweetness of raisins and a cinnamon/nutmeg dusting. Maybe that is what "Old Fashioned" bread pudding is supposed to be- but it tasted like an omelet. It wasn't what I was looking for. My quest is for a sweeter (but not too sweet), richer (but not too rich), heavier (but...you get the idea) taste. I have a nice cookbook collection, which I should have consulted instead of looking for the quick fix on the 'net. Do any of you fave recipe to share before I go about my research?
If this had been a fan-f'ing-tastic dessert, it would have taken my mind off of the fact that I compromised the computer network of my place of employment by looking for the recipe, heck- it might have even made it worth it. I could have somehow justified the whole thing if it had just tasted good. (See the 6/1 post It's Chili in Miami). I try not to be superstitious but at times it's hard not to believe in karma...and the eggs.
