The essential problem with white bread...

... is that when you combine 8 thick slices (broken into pieces) with 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of butter, 1 tablespoon vanilla, 3 eggs, and 2 cups of whole milk and bake it at 400 F for 30 minutes, it turns into bread pudding!

I've discovered this problem recently, and now I must spend another 4 hours a week on my bike to rid myself of the calories.

This is most distressing.

I'm not so sure about that problem...... 

I feel driven to do my own research on this...   ;-)

...but methinks a nice pear-ginger preserve served over warm bread pudding is quite convincing. :D

(That recipe needs 3x the ginger, however, if one is concerned about the statistical significance of such things as deliciousness and waist enlargement.).

Yes, I think the original observation was quite enough, thank you very much.  Now, how am I supposed to get this out of my head?!?  ...must have bread pudding... must have bread pudding... see what you've done? :D

...if I pass it on, maybe the possession will release me.

I didn't buy eggs today so I can't make more (white bread or bread pudding). No eggs is a surefire way to stop me from making deliciousness this time of year. 

Ski season is upon us, alas; so, what I can't make, I can buy as ski lodge and coffee shop for usurious prices. $14 cinnamon rolls at Vail, anyone? :D

..... considering pannetone and brioche could meet a similar fate swimming in the same mixture in a hot oven.

Potato bread can meet a similar fate.

It all sounds wonderful......too good actually.............it just all gets back to portion control which is self control.

There is also the problem with croissants. If you slice them in half and put almond filling in the middle, when you take them out of the oven they have  mysteriously turned into a wonderful pastry. After that, they just seem to leap off the plate and into my mouth. It's very strange . . .

came by since we live in the sticks, so it was up to me to make sure the left-overs didn't rot.

(Love the pencil idea !)
