Chocolate Bread Pudding

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Last weekend turned out to be down time, holy time. Rather than being inspired to write something riveting, I was inspired to cook and clean. And, I found a great recipe:

Chocolate Bread pudding

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 eggs
¾ c. packed light brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups of milk
4 cups cubed stale bread

Melt 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Mix together eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, milk, and melted chocolate in large bowl. Add bread and let stand 30 minutes, occasionally stirring.
Ladle half of the bread mixture into a loaf pan. Spread remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips on top. Ladle the rest of the bread mixture. Bake about 55 minutes. Serve warm with cream. Serves 10.
I halved the recipe and used oatmeal bread and an old leftover scone. I also reduced the amount of chocolate chips. The dessert was FABULOUS!

From Science and Health, “Genesis 2:2. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.

“God rests in action. Imparting has not impoverished and can never impoverish the divine Mind. As understood in divine Science, no exhaustion follows the action of this Mind. The most satisfying and sweetest rest, even from a human standpoint, is in holy work.”

    Yes! Good call. I’ve reduced the amount of chocolate also on occasions when I’d like it a bit lighter.

    Is this baked at 350?

    Thank you, I updated the blog. Add the milk with the rest of the ingredients before pouring over the bread.

Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.

Making the Bible practical
Reading the Bible practically requires thought. This is different from reading the Bible  emotionally or as if the words are what God said. The Bible isn’t a history book and God doesn’t speak human words. God is Spirit and communicates spiritually, mentally. The David and Goliath story foun

The questionable big bang
Bible scholars recognize two distinct accounts of creation in Genesis. In the first chapter of Genesis through chapter 2:3, God renders the common noun, Elohim. As for the second account, the beginning of human history, God renders Yahweh in the Hebrew. For right reasoning, the two accounts ca
