Chocolate bread pudding |hungrybrownie|

If you have been following my blog you would know that this is not my first bread pudding recipe. I am obsessed with bread pudding I know.  My mom never made bread pudding while in the Philippines because very rarely we have leftover bread to begin with. If you live with a family of 7 then you know what I’m talking about, especially when you have two older brothers who will stop at nothing to get what they want to eat, aka, leftovers.  From this I have learned how to hide a stash of food in my room, lock the door, and throw away the key.

I am just used to be a part of a bigger family, but now that It’s just me and my husband, I have too much leftover bread to handle.  I have three bread pudding recipes to date (see Cinnamon bread pudding, Mango bread pudding and this Chocolate bread pudding) but out of the three, this is probably my favorite.  I can’t wait to make this for my family back home.  Just a few more months till our Philippines trip!

Ingredients
  1. 8 slices leftover french bread
  2. 1 tablespoon butter, plus more for baking dish
  3. 2 cups milk
  4. 3 ounces semi sweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  5. 2 large eggs
  6. 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  7. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. Confectioner's sugar for dusting
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch square baking dish, set aside.
  2. 2. In a medium saucepan over low-medium heat, combine butter, milk and chocolate. Stir occasionally until butter and chocolate has melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool a little bit.
  3. 3. Slice bread into small bite-size pieces and evenly layer inside prepared baking dish. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk in warm milk chocolate mixture until well combined. Pour over bread.
  4. 4. Using a fork, push down on the bread to absorb the wet mixture. Bake in a preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until bread pudding has puffed up and firm. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  5. 5. Sprinkle some confectioner's sugar before serving. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. This pudding can be served warm, room temperature, or cold. To chill, let cool completely, then cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least one hour or overnight. - Martha
