Bread Pudding + Chocolate Ganache

I'm not a big fan of leftovers, not that I don't eat leftovers, I just don't want to waste food. It is always in my best interest to re-use/re-cook food in any way that I can. Now before you go on cray cray and think that I serve stale and old cakes, that is not the case… necessarily. ;-p

There are a lot of ways to save an old desert and make it into something new, case and point: Bread Pudding! I'm sure any old hotel buffet serve this delectable dessert, and not because its a staple and oh so yummy but to save their day old breads from going to waste. Now isn't that clever and resourceful I might add. So one day I am faced with the same dilemma, life changing problem if ask me, what to do with leftover Pate choux! Now if you are going to ask why I had a lot of leftover Pate choux, don't! It's a long story and I'm not ready to talk about it. 

So I did what any logical baker would do, make bread pudding! Top it off with Chocolate ganache, and your friends won't even notice that you were being lazy during that potluck dinner! They'd be in awe and say, Wow, you are such an awesome baker, with matching tap on the back! ;-p 

This is one of the easiest desserts ever and I highly recommend you read more for recipe :) 

Bread Pudding:

1 Bowl (cut into bite size pieces ) of bread/ pate choux/ croissant/ doughnut, whatever you can find really that is of bread-like qualities, but please no savory bread, that's just weird :)

2. Pour the mixture into the bread and soak for 15 minutes 
3. Brush with the remaining butter, and top with choco chips and raisins.
