(Good eats) Dessert Duel

Kim Schneider
When it comes to bread pudding, every culture, from Mexico to South Africa, has its take. But two of our local favorites have found inspiration across the pond — one has English roots, while the other flaunts its French qualities. Two deserving bread puddings with very different tastes —take your pick.

GLBC signature bread pudding from Great Lakes Brewing Co.
2516 Market Ave., Cleveland,
(216) 771-4404,
Price: $7
The ingredients: Plump raisins folded into soft, doughy bread and topped with a bourbon-butter sauce and fresh whipped cream makes this unfussy dessert a great example of what a bread pudding should be.
Bang for your buck: The large portion is enough to share with friends or indulge in all your own (we recommend the latter).
Croissant bread pudding from Tartine Bistro
19110 Old Detroit Road, Rocky River, (440) 331-0800,
Price: $6
The ingredients: Flaky bread gives way to sour cherries tempered by a sweet white chocolate sauce tinged with a hint of mint. Sounds complicated, but the layers of unexpected flavors pay off.
Bang for your buck: This dessert is so decadent and tart that we’re fine with the fact that it’s smaller than GLBC’s version.
