Chocolate Bread Pudding
Chocolate Bread Pudding
The recipe is adapted from the old Fanny Farmer cookbook and has been around for a long time. It is a way to use up stale bread and get an amazing dessert in doing so.
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 qt scalded milk (heated to 180° F)
  • 4 c of 1" cubes of stale bread
  • Note - I use the Classic White Bread recipe and cut 3 1" slices and then cube them and let them sit out for a day or two.
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 1/4 c butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 t vanilla
1.  Preheat the oven to 325° F.
2.  Butter a 1 1/2 or 2 quart casserole dish.
3.  Break the chocolate into pieces and melt it in the milk, stirring until smooth.
4.  Add the bread to the milk and set aside to cool.
5.  When lukewarm, add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
6.  Pour the mixture into the casserole dish.
7.  Bake uncovered until the center is set. Start checking it at 50 minutes and then at 5 minute intervals after that. It will probably take about an hour.
Serve with hard sauce or whipped cream.
