Hello, friends and bread pudding lovers! If you aren’t a bread pudding lover (or at least a ‘like-r’) after 10 weeks of seeing this heavenly dessert, I don’t know what to tell you.
So we’ve hit week 10 – the final week of me and Jess’s Bread Pudding Challenge. It’s been a crazy ride, and I’ve had so much fun running around St. Louis in search of the best Bread Pudding.
Honestly, this challenge could have gone on for 20 weeks (or more!). There are so many great spots to find this decadent dessert; it would be impossible to hit them all.
So, with no further ado, I present to you – the final week of the BP Challenge! This week I went to Frazer’s, in the Benton Park neighborhood of St. Louis.
Since it was such a lovely day, I made myself comfortable on their outdoor patio. Spring is not officially here, but it sure felt like it!
Let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
According to the menu, this bread pudding contained white and milk chocolate, along with whiskey sauce and whipped cream.
I dug in quickly before the sun melted the whipped cream too much!
My thoughts? I wasn’t really a fan. The flavor of the bread pudding was nice; while I didn’t taste any hints of white chocolate, the milk chocolate was definitely there. It was creamy and very chocolatey. I didn’t taste any traces of whiskey sauce, either, which was rather disappointing.
The texture of this bread pudding is what really let me down. The top and bottom of the bread pudding were hard and crunchy, like they had been overcooked. The middle was just okay – it was approaching that custard-like texture that I despise. I wouldn’t describe it as custardy, but it was close.
I was hoping to end the bread pudding challenge with a bang. I had my fingers crossed that Frazer’s would knock it out of the park. I guess my hopes were just too high for this one.
So what happens from here? Next Wednesday, I will post a wrap-up, with a quick rundown of each bread pudding and my top three picks. Later that afternoon, Jess will have a guest post featured on my blog, with her thoughts on each BP, as well as her top 3.
This is where you come in. We need your help in choosing the best bread pudding in St. Louis! I’ll set up a poll on my Facebook page (feel free to chime in on twitter or in the comments section as well!), and the following week, we’ll crown the winner. Sound good? You in? I hope so!
Enjoy this Pi Day (get it? 3.14…) and I’ll see you later!
