Bread Pudding Chocolate

These days when you eat out and the restaurant offers bread pudding, it is always the raisin and cinnamon kind, which I despise. However, when I was a kid, the greatest treat my mother could make for us was chocolate bread pudding. I don’t know what it was about this that made it so wonderful…probably just that Mommy made it, but after having chocolate bread pudding, all other pales as an inferior substitute.

Bread Pudding, Chocolate

1 1/2 squares unsweetened chocolate

3 cups milk

2 eggs slightly beaten

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups cubed stale bread

Add chocolate to milk and heat in double boiler. When chocolate is melted, stir until blended. Combine eggs, sugar and salt. Add chocolate mixture gradually stirring vigorously. Add vanilla. Place bread in greased baking dish. Pour mixture over it and let stand ten minutes. The mix well before baking. Place dish in pan of hot water and bake in moderate oven (350 degrees F) 60 minutes. Serves six.

  1. YUM! My mother made it for us too. She also made the kind with raisins and cinnamon, which is only OK. I never order it out, or here at FV (Not Fountain Valley). When we were on a “Howard” trip, we were served chocolate bread pudding at Yosemite lodge – evidently no one much had heard of it and were surprised by it. I LOVED it and it brought back good memories. I would recommend hard sauce with it – hard sauce is like vanilla frosting except you keep adding XXX sugar un till it is almost too stiff to stir. Serve it with very warm pudding. EXCELLENT.
