Chocolate Bread Pudding

Chocolate Bread Pudding

This delicious, intensely chocolaty chocolate bread pudding is made with thick slices of flavorful sourdough bread. I like using sourdough bread for bread pudding because of its dense texture. Research also shows it’s actually healthier than whole-wheat bread.

Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, soft
  • 4 (40 gram) slices sourdough bread
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup (2 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
Instructions
  1. Use your fingers to coat a 1-quart baking dish with the butter (or double the recipe and use a square 8-inch baking dish).
  2. Lightly toast the bread in your toaster oven to dry it out, then cube it into ½-inch pieces. Place the bread cubes in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Heat the milk over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add the cocoa powder and the chocolate chips. Whisk constantly until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup and vanilla. Gradually pour about 2 tablespoons of the chocolate-milk mixture into the egg mixture, whisking vigorously to avoid curdling the eggs. Now slowly pour the egg mixture into the chocolate milk, whisking constantly.
  5. Pour the liquids evenly over the bread cubes, making sure all bread cubes are soaked. If some remain bare, gently flip them using your fingers to make sure they get coated.
  6. Cover the baking dish with foil and gently press with your hands to flatten. Allow the bread to soak the custard while you heat up the oven (no need to preheat).
  7. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  8. When oven is ready, remove the foil. Bake the pudding, uncovered, 30-35 minutes, or until set.
  9. Remove from oven. Cool 5 minutes in pan. While bread pudding is cooling, whip the cream - no need to add sugar, heavy cream is already naturally sweet, and the bread pudding itself is very sweet.
  10. Spoon the bread pudding into individual bowls. Top with a dollop of whipped cream, and serve.
