Valentine's Day Recipe: Toffee Bread Pudding with Clotted Cream and Caramel

toffee bread pudding

This Valentine's Day, rather than bumping elbows with other couples in close quarters at the latest in-demand restaurant, cuddle up at home with your sweetheart and this indulgent take on bread pudding from Brian Reyelt. The Boston-based chef uses a mixture of custard and buttery croissants to build the bulk of the dessert, then finishes it with a drizzle of caramel sauce and a crowning of clotted cream. We love the tiny shards of chocolate toffee that hide among the decadent layers of dough. It's fun to excavate them with a spoon—much more fun than trying to secure a restaurant reservation. Get the recipe here.
