This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was selected by Lauren of Upper East Side Chronicle. Just like the title indicates, it's a simple bread pudding made with melted chocolate in the custard batter. I decided to use dark chocolate instead of bittersweet, just because that's what I prefer. Cutting this into slices was definitely easier once it had been chilled overnight in the refrigerator post-baking.
Making this bread pudding was interesting since my kitchen is in a bit of disarray...again. Seems like problems just keep coming up. There was a small flood in our townhouse, and it turned out that our adjacent neighbor's pipes were leaking into our area. Because they had recently remodeled their kitchen with granite, the plumber couldn't access the pipes from their side, so now we have a large gash in the wall of our kitchen, and the oven is sitting in the middle of it. Now, our kitchen isn't that big to start with, so it's been difficult lately to do the simple things, like open the refrigerator. But hey, when life gives you lemons, right? Hopefully it'll be finished this week.
