Dorie says if you love bread pudding you will love this. Well, um, I *don’t* love bread pudding (my parents do though) so I wasn’t too fussed about making this. I did make the scones though and made extra for this recipe. And then both of us got sick and I forgot about the scones and I definitely forgot to freeze the leftovers and, well, then I had to make more scones. Gah!
In fact, this is a bit of a fussy recipe, involving not only scones but lemon curd and also apples. I had some lemon curd needing to be used up in the fridge so that was good. But no apples. But lots of blueberries … so I figured with lemon-poppyseed scones and lemon curd, that would be a good combination.
So this is a simple custard poured over layers of scones spread with lemon curd and then it’s topped with apple slices. I made 1/2 of this recipe, using 2 1/2 scones and it made four HUGE serves (it’s not the lightest dish so you don’t need much!). My scones soaked up the custard and my pudding was less custardy – it cut like a cake. It’s been a while since I made/ ate a bread pudding so I am not sure if this is what it’s meant to be like?
In any case, it’s pretty with the blueberries and poppyseeds, right? Probably not one I’d make again but for bread pudding lovers I am sure this would be a winner!
