When my friend suggested that I make bread pudding cupcakes, chocolate is not what I had in mind. I was picturing more of a traditional bread pudding – maybe with some kind of boozy sauce. However, when I came across Chockylit’s chocolate bread pudding cupcakes with toffee, all other searches went out the window. I couldn’t even think of a way that I wanted to change it. I almost always change something about a cupcake recipe. In this case, I made it as written, except for the frosting.
How Were the Bread Pudding Cupcakes?
The bread pudding cupcakes were a little rich for me. They were almost a cross between bread pudding and fudge. My mother-in-law said the cupcakes were a perfect chocolate bread pudding, but she wasn’t quite sure how they were cupcakes. This was a common comment among my tasters – including my ever present taster Ran and Bride and Groom 2.0. Cupcake or not, if you like rich chocolate desserts and you like bread pudding, this might be a winner for you!
The Bread Pudding Cupcake Recipe
As noted above, I got the bread pudding cupcake recipe from Chockylit. I have reprinted it below with my notes.
I topped the bread pudding cupcakes with brewed chocolate frosting. It went perfectly!
