  17. I love pudding (virtually all puddings!)so this is calling to me - love the addition of rum!

  18. Hi Kit,

    I laughed reading about your sons' Huhs! Waiting to eat a delicious food can be quite torturing!


  19. What a decadent dessert! Yes, perfect for a cold winter night, in deed. I seldom make bread pudding for the same reason. But I see you achieve a golden crunchy top on these. Maybe I should give them a try. They sound perfect with the rum raisin ice cream!

  20. Hi Kit! Generally I am not a fan of bread puddings. But since this one has chocolate, I might give it a chance :)

  21. I wouldn't be able to wait overnight to eat this!!

    Also, I love the ramekins, so pretty :)
