Although some people consider me a "baker," the irony is I don't even have much of a sweet tooth. Usually I bake to please others. However, I fell in love with Sweet Melissa's Sweet Almond Bread Pudding with Raspberry Sauce. Literally. After my second bread pudding, I needed to learn how to make it myself. Lucky for me, Candy Girl shared the recipe (from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book by Melissa Murphy) on her blog. Like Candy, I used Challah instead of brioche as my supermarket didn't have it either. The difference was insignificant so I have been using Challah ever since. The whole wheat is just a poor attempt at making it healthier. As for cutting the sugar, I often find many desserts too sweet, so I do this with everything I make. Click on the Read more link below for my version of the recipe.
On a side note, I made this yesterday for my friend, who has waited a year and half to eat it again. Happy birthday, Linda! Hope it was worth the wait :)
