craving bread pudding...

I'm craving bread pudding... ideally with chocolate chips. Any recommendations for some great bread pudding?

    If you're jonesing and near Whole Foods, they do a good traditional one without choc chips though. Ralph's also makes one, but it does have nuts in it.... it's gooer and more caramelized through than WF's, but it has those nuts that I would have to pick out.

      I used to get a really wonderful pudding, chocolate or vanilla, in the bakery case at the Broadway Deli on the 3rd Street promenade. I assume they're still making it.

        Agree. It's the only thing worth eating there, too.

          Auntie 'Em's in Glendale has GREAT bread pudding. Usually fruit though, like banana, don't know if they do chocolate chips. And while there, pick up their Red Velvet Cupcakes. The minis are only $1.25, the 'maxis' (huge ones) are $3-3.50...and just gorgeous. Not too oily, like Doughboys....

            Try Chaya Brasserie! Their chocolate croissant bread pudding is AMAZING.

              Bread puddings I have tried and liked:

              Pacific Dining Car (6th St. & Witmer)
              Frances Bakery (Honda Plaza on 2nd St., in Little Tokyo)

                Babita... but call ahead of time because it's not currently being served (I tried ordering it last week).
