I cubed and dried my own bread crumbs, from a one dollar loaf of day old french bread. I placed the cubes on a cookie sheet and turned them two or three times. This was an easy recipe to follow. I baked the pudding to the exact temperature and times stated in the recipe. The finish pudding came out puffy just as lazyme said it would. I let the pudding cool down and my kitchen before making the Chantilly cream. So the puff had gone out of my pudding by the time I had made the Chantilly cream. Step 15 only took just over a minute to get the soft peaks, using my KitchenAid mixer. The whole recipe was very tasty but the Chantilly cream is to die for. I suggest to make a double batch of this topping. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013 in the 'Bread N'awlins Style Challenge'
Lovely straight forward recipe using pantry ingredients. Delicious too with the added indulgence of the Chantilly - don't skip that !! I used a sliced grain bread, torn up into small pieces. Made for ZWT9.
