A week ago I watched an episode of America's Worst Cooks on FN. Robert Irvine had this gorgeous Vanilla Brioche Bread Pudding with Peach Suzette Sauce recipe that I thought I would try. Now the bread puddings I have had are always dry or no flavor. Other than one time at this resort that was super expensive, that was delicious there. Well the judges on the show raved about this and Robert even said it was better than when he makes it. So.... I went with Dh to get all the ingredients on Friday. This recipe calls for Brioche bread? I have never heard of it and neither had the 3 stores I went to. We head back to the grocery store and DH looks on his phone for a Brioche bread recipe. If I am going to make this I want to make it right, this wasn't asking for any loaf of bread. It was a bit more specific and I didn't want to try and substitute. Anyways, we find a recipe and I made the bread.
This made 2 loaves and I have to tell you it doesn't look like much for all that work, right? After 3 1/2 hours making this bread I wanted it to look different I guess. It was a huge mess in making as it wants you to knead a cup of butter in stages into this bread. If you have kneaded bread you can only imagine how slimy and messy this was. I said to DH this better be worth it. It is now Saturday night and dinner time. Our new dinner recipe turned out awesome as well which was Slow Cooker Brisket sandwiches. Now we just had the brisket and all the sides etc, but you can use the Brioche bread with this as well.
Back to this bread pudding. The sauces are cooked and ready to slather on the scrumptious dessert or so we are hoping. This is the first dish served up, the little touch of Creme Fraiche on top and voila.....
The most delishes bread pudding I have ever HAD! It was so darn DELICIOUS.... I can't even begin to say how great this was. It was so creamy and moist, the creme fraiche was tangy and with the smooth sweet sauce it was awesome. Oh my goodness! I will gain 20 pounds if I make this a lot. Holy smokes! If you had smell-o-vision on the computer you would want to eat your monitor. ha! Now I have a whole loaf of Brioche bread to use and look what I found while finding these links for you all? A fabulous Tyler Florence recipe with guess what.... Brioche bread! Gasp! I adore Tyler as he has some of my favorite recipes so here is the next one I am trying with my Brioche Bread called Brioche and Berry Bread Pudding with Lemon Fondant! I will let you know how that turns out. Thanks for listening and seeing me ramble about my food addiction. hee hee Have a great evening.
