Gluten and Dairy Free Cherry Choc Chip Bread Pudding


I typed up this recipe to share last week when the weather wasn’t great.  Now it is scorching hot and you probably have no desire to sit down to bread pudding.  I thought I would share the recipe anyway and you can tuck it away to make on a rainy day.

I love cherry and chocolate as a combination and this pudding ticks all the boxes for me.  Each bite gives you a mixture of juicy cherries and melted dark chocolate.  If you don’t have fresh cherries this recipe also works well with frozen cherries.  I also have another bread pudding on my website for a rhubarb and ginger version if you prefer that flavour combination.

Working on a few new dessert recipes which I can hopefully share soon including a key lime pie, chocolate banofffe pie and a cararmel peanut chocolate pretzel pie – all gluten and dairy free.
