Grade A Comfort Food

Leftover bread and a ripe banana—it's the making of a bread pudding. I've been thinking of bread pudding ever since I had some at Note Bene two weeks ago, and while I’ve never been a particularly huge fan of it, something made me want to have just a little more. So I threw half a French baguette into a pan along with a ripe banana and a sprinkle of chocolate chips for a bit of variety.

Bread pudding is comfort food at its finest, combining two of my particularly favourite comfort food items: sugar and carbs. The egg custard base makes for a sinfully rich dessert, and only a few bites will be enough to satisfy you. I’ll be honest, I ended up giving half of the pudding away to a friend, because I couldn’t possibly have finished the whole pan on my own (nor would I want to!). I had a small bowl of it myself, and the rest I’ve tucked away into my freezer, to have on had for those days when I just need a little pick-me-up. I think I’ll go out for a jog now so I feel less guilty…
