New! Apricot-Mascarpone Bread Pudding for Four

Apricot-Mascarpone Bread Pudding

It's too bad I had to eat my loaf of braided apricot bread because it really was a work of art. I had a slice, just to determine what I could match it up with: I considered something earthy, like brie.

Then at the grocery store I saw a carton of mascarpone. A light bulb when off, an aha! moment occurred.

And that was that.

Bread of the Month: Braided Apricot Bread

Braided apricot bread from Bay Bakers.

Just when I was complaining inwardly that I hadn't won anything lately, I learned that I'd won a year's worth of free bread - well, one loaf per month - from Bay Bakers, a vendor at my favorite farm market.

I couldn't wait to get it home to eat photograph it. In January, I chose cherry-walnut bread but ate it too fast to shoot it.

I knew this bread would be out of this world, because I'd bought a braid of apricot-almond bread for Christmas breakfast from the same vendor. I don't think it lasted ten minutes.

A loaf like this is a treat for me. It's really a good thing I only get one free one per month.

I'd love to try making this, and you might, too, so I found this recipe, which looks very similar.

I'm not very adept at making shaped breads, but this could find it's way into another recipe.
