Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Swirl Bread Pudding with A Sweet Maple Drizzle

Hope everyone enjoyed a nice weekend. Sunday night is upon us again, I’m still trying to get unpacked from our fun filled weekend in SnowflakeAZ.For those of you who are not from AZ, Snowflake is a very small town that has a big celebration for Pioneer Day Weekend, which happened to be this weekend.

My husband’s family makes a tradition to have a family reunion every other year on this weekend. Small towns are very interesting, they are fun for a weekend and then I find that it makes me so grateful to live in the city! Nothing against small towners, but it’s just not for me. I am so spoiled and grateful to have just about every store I need within a few miles from my house. I will say that we did have lots of fun, I posted a few pics of the highlights from our trip in the post below.

Did anyone happen to catch my toe tapping, “overly salty” performance on The Build a Better Burger Competition this weekend on Food Network? Don’t worry if you missed it, you can catch my undercooked chicken performance coming up in August. At least I can laugh at myself, one of these days I’m bound to get it just right!

Ok, onto the bread pudding!This is a killer recipe.It’s another recipe that I worked on for that little project I was talking about earlier, that I will post about early this week.It is easy, and ridiculously tasty.The cinnamon swirl loaf, that I picked up from Walmart, makes for a perfect bread pudding, gooey and sweet.Baking it in muffin tins makes nice little individual servings, perfect for picking up with your fingers!

I would say for the little amount of effort that goes into making these, it’s one of my favorite bread pudding recipes.I can’t wait to tweek it into more flavors.I think I’ll do fruit next time.
Do yourself a favor and whip up a batch, they literally take minutes to prepare, you’ll be glad you did. Don’t forget to drizzle, it’s a complete must!

    Ah! That’s why your profile pic looked familiar! I think I’ve seen that Food Network challenge before and never connected the two. Cool!

    Love the bread puddings – I’ve got this flagged for my next brunch!

  15. Jenny

    Thanks Honeyb,
    The glaze is my fav part!

    Hi Theresa,
    Hope you enjoy!

    Hi Katherine,
    Thanks for visiting my blog, great to have you!

    Hi Sharon,
    Trust me, you didn’t miss much! I goofed up my burgers and served them way too underdone, had fun though!

    Hi Barbara,
    Yes, my kids loved these too, the berry version coming soon.

    Thank you so much for your kind comment! I remember those sleepless nights so clearly and I would watch Food Network too. Glad that I can help with some dinner ideas for your family. I have so much respect for you as a mother of 7!

    Thanks Kimberly,
    Hope you’ll enjoy the recipes you try!

    Thanks Pricilla,
    You’ll love these and so will your family! Can’t wait to see your version!

    Me either Rita,
    I ate one too many of these!

    Hi Mandy,
    Definitely visit the Superstion market, you’ll find loads of great veggis for a great price. I need to get back there this week!

  16. Mandy

    Thanks for all of the great recipes! I loved your post about using asparagus from your Farmer’s Market – I am also in Arizona, and am wondering where you shop for cheap, good, produce. Thanks!

  17. Clumbsy Cookie

    Loving cinnamon swril bread, chocolate and bread pudding, I don’t think I would have a major issue eating a couple (ok more) of those! They look very darling as individual portions, and also less messy!

  18. ~Priscilla~

    these look delicious, i know what i will be making next! your little boys look like they had a blast!

  19. Kimberly

    I did see you on the Food Network this weekend! Fun! I kept thinking, I wonder if she belongs to the Flake family that colonized Snowflake, AZ?

    These look so yummy! I love reading your blog. I always salivate over all the recipes. I have really got to try to make some soon!

  20. Shumway Family


    I smiled when I saw you on the Food Network this weekend with your burger. How fun for you!

    Glad you had a fun weekend in Snowflake – my husband’s ancestors settled the area – I’m sure with lots of others too…:)

    Thanks for always sharing your recipes. I love to cook – kicked around the idea of culinary school- but was too scared to do it. I’m so happy you create recipes and do Food Network stuff – when my second son was born I was up all night, every night walking the halls with him. I become infatuated with Tyler Florence. NOw that those sleepless nights are over, I still like his food, just not infatuated with him…:)

    I love your style – it’s easy to feed my family of seven and has enough culinary interest for my palate!

    Long winded, but Happy Monday!!


  21. Barbara Bakes

    My kids would love these for breakfast. I’ll look forward to the berry version. Thanks for the award!

  22. Sharon

    You were on the food network? I “know” a star?! 🙂 Sorry I missed it, I’ll have to tune in to repeats.
    On to the good stuff, this has me drooling. It’s early here and not quite time for bread pudding but I want a bite anyway!

  23. Katherine Aucoin

    These look amazing. I think one would go real good with my cup of coffee right now. You have a terrific blog. Thanks for your kind comments and for visiting my blog.

  24. Theresa

    I saw these this morning and wish it was on my table for breakfast. They look so good. A must try.

  25. HoneyB

    These made my mouth water! Wishing I had one for breakfast! 🙂 I love how they look the glaze and the chocolate chips are just yumm!!
