Where's the bread pudding?

Now that winter is here, I'm searching for a regular bread pudding fix, but to little avail.

I continue to be surprised at how scarce this treat is in Toronto (and other parts of Ontario, for that matter). Across the border it's *everywhere* - they even sell it from food trucks and at backcountry gas stations...

I'd prefer not to be limited to ordering this at the end of a dine-in meal - I like to scratch my itch and go. Acceptable pud is fine. Tasty and properly made is a definite plus!

Any recommendations?

  1. I found some in Kesseler bakery in Richmond Hill,which was not too bad.

    1. I stop by Le Delice in Mississauga all the time to fill my craving; they make great mini ones for sure. Don't recall offhand if they make large sizes on a regular basis but I have no doubt that they'd do it if you gave them a couple days notice.

      1. They serve it at Le Gourmand some of the time---usually not just the plain kind though. It usually has chocolate chips (and banana, I think) in it.

          Chocolate is great. Bananas are a non-starter, however... :(

            I think it might have been banana bread--is that better?

        2. Not sure if this will fill the need for you or not, but the baked french toast at Bonjour Brioche is essentially a very decadent bread pudding. They use their day old croissants and brioche, cut into pieces and soak in cream and eggs overnight before baking the next morning. It's wonderful, rich and decadent.

          1. The bakery in the distillery does a very good bread and butter pudding. I recommend it.

              Thanks all for the input.

              I was looking for an excuse to go to the Distillery this weekend and I think you just gave me one...

              Will check it out.
