Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding

Posted by parsingtime on November 28, 2007

Bread Pudding Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf French bread, cut into 1-inch squares (about 6-7 cups)
  • 1 qt milk
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Soak the bread in milk in a large mixing bowl. Crush with hands until well mixed and all the milk is absorbed. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon together. Gently stir into the bread mixture. Gently stir the chocolate chips into the mixture.

Pour butter into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking pan. Coat the bottom and the sides of the pan well with the butter. Pour in the bread mix and bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, until set. The pudding is done when the edges start getting a bit brown and pull away from the edge of the pan. Can also make in individual ramekins.

Parsingtime Thoughts: Serve with ice cream on the side.  Warm pudding + cold ice cream =  yummy; Makes 8-10 servings. I’ve eaten this reheated the next day and it was still good.  Also I think you could make this with white chocolate chips or butterscotch chips or any other chips you can find or even something gross like raisins or craisins. Ugh.

I also make this as a half recipe using half a loaf of bread, 2 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 1 cup sugar, 1tbsp vanilla, 1/2 cup chocolate chips. It’s good I promise. I made this for a dinner party last week and everyone asked for the recipe.

One word of caution, use a hard loaf of french bread. Soft-ish french bread makes this a big soggy mess…and then you look like a fool in front of your in-laws because you have to throw away a whole dessert. Not that that would happen to me.

    This would make excellent therapy for your last post-much cheaper than real therapy – as long as it didn’t lead to jowls.
