I was inspired to make bread pudding when I found this recipe for Nutella Bread Pudding (recipe here). I had everything in the house except the nutella. Yet, what I did have was some of the ganache from Eli’s birthday cupcakes! I am not a big nutella fan, so using the rich, dark chocolate ganache made me very happy!
I switched it up a little from the original recipe. I used a little more cream and little less milk and I opted to bake these in muffin tins rather than ramekins. I was able to make quite a few mini bread puddings which made it the perfect to dessert to take to friends, leaving a few behind for breakfast the next morning.
You can’t really go wrong with a bread pudding. Most all the recipes I have every tried are full proof. Play with your ingredients a little, that is the fun of it!
