This recipe is inspired by the food52 community. From Amanda's post on chai, I was tempted to try a simple chai recipe given by Sally Maccoun from her friend Alla. It was the first time I had chai, and I liked it. So, I brought over a loaf of left over bread to my friend's house where we tried out this recipe...and I got her to join food52 too. This bread pudding has a very light texture and gentle flavor...perfect for a chai newbie like me. Thanks food52 for expanding my horizons! —monkeymom
Frothy Ginger Creme
slice fresh ginger
Chai Bread Pudding
tea bag (black tea...I used Earl Grey as that is all my friend had on hand)
slices sweet french bread, crusts removed (it was a wide loaf, not a slim baguette)
My favorite distraction is to cook. Though science and cooking/baking have a lot in common, I'm finding that each allows me to enjoy very different parts of my life. Cooking connects me with my heritage, my family, friends, and community. I'm really enjoying learning from the food52 community, who expose me to different ingredients and new ways to cook.
