All You Double Chocolate Bread Pudding with Dulce de Leche

Desserts and treats prove to be a popular item in my house, being devoured within hours of being made. My boys like anything with chocolate or sugar, but my husband and I are a little more particular in our preferences. I try to make a variety of dessert recipes so my family doesn't get tired of the same treats, time and time again. The May issue of All You had a recipe for Double Chocolate Bread Pudding with Dulce de Leche, that looked interesting and different from our normal dessert routine.

This recipe is easy to put together, but time consuming. The bread pudding has to sit for an hour after being prepped and then cooked for an hour. The recipes method for preparing the dulce de leche is time consuming and takes about 2 1/2 hours. This isn't a dessert that can be started at the last minute, total time is over 3 hours. The ingredients are easy to find, there was only one type of instant espresso powder available at my local store, so that is the one I used, I don't know if a different brand would have affected the taste. I did modify the way that I prepared the dulce de leche. After two hours mine wasn't thick enough, so I took it off the double broiler and finished up on the stove.

This recipe has a nice taste with the combination of the chocolate and espresso powder. It isn't overly sweet like many bread pudding recipe can be and has a nice consistency. My husband and I enjoyed this recipe, but it took my boys a couple tastes before they were convinced. This is a great recipe for a more complex dessert option and work great for having guests over.

  2. Love the recipes. I am a fan of good homecooking and these recipes sound mouthwatering. Double Chocolate Bread Pudding with Dulce de Leche (?) It really does sound decadent, but at the right moment and with a good cup of coffee,tea or milk. MMMmmmm. Perfect.

    Aside recipes, I like the way your site is organized and Frugal is something that more and more of us need to be, whether we planned on it or not. It is a good old American virtue we need to cultivate.

  3. @Kiran Thanks for following back.

    @Will, I started trying to cook from scratch as much as possible about a year ago. With living on one income, I try to cut our budget as much as I can and I think everyone should start saving more and spending less. Plus, homemade food tastes so much better :) Thanks for the follow and comments!

  9. @XtraSmall I can tell from the photos on your blog that you're tiny :) I was underweight for a long time and my youngest is only in the 5th percentile weight wise.

    @Arizona Girls It is a time consuming recipe, but it would work well for a gathering or large group, I understand about summer heat its supposed to be 100 this week here and we get nasty humidity :) I try to bake in the morning before the house gets horrible
