Good morning and happy Wednesday! I hope your Valentine’s Day was lovely. Me? I chilled at home with my favorite Valentine:
Say hi to Walcott! She’s my baby
Okay, enough mushiness. Let’s talk food! For this week’s Bread Pudding Challenge I headed to Annie Gunn’s in Chesterfield. This fancy pants restaurant is well-known for their steaks, but I was here for one thing and one thing only: bread pudding!
Annie Gunn’s has a banana bread pudding with Maker’s Mark caramel sauce. Sounds delish, right?
It was. This was served in a giant bowl. I’ve never been served bread pudding in a bowl until now! And with the crazy amount of caramel sauce that was served, I now understand why. It was practically swimming in it!
When this was first presented to me, I was wary. I was almost sure that this bread pudding would be soggy and custard-y, due to all of the caramel sauce.
But somehow…it wasn’t. It was a little soft, but not so much that it was custard like. It still had the firmness that I love in bread pudding. So texture-wise, it was spot on.
Taste-wise? Another home run! The banana flavor was pretty pronounced, and I loved how it was garnished with banana slices. This dessert was like bananas foster in bread pudding form! Delicious.
I give the bread pudding at Annie Gunn’s two thumbs up. But how does it compare to the other 5 spots I’ve tried so far? Here are my personal standings (1 is the best!):
2. Annie Gunn’s
6. Café Eau
As you can see, the BP at Annie Gunn’s didn’t knock Remy’s out of first place for me, but it’s a very close second! Poor Café Eau is still at the bottom for me. Blech.
I can’t wait to see what BP ends up being Jess’ favorite! Only a few more weeks left of the bread pudding challenge!
See you this Friday with a restaurant review!
