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.”

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

A mask of compassion
In my observance of life, I’ve noticed a human trait that can get out of hand. We humor ourselves or others. I’m not talking about humor, hahaha. Wittiness and fun lay low when we want to humor someone. To humor someone is to indulge them, to give them slack, or comply with what they ar

Getting out of the rut
Moses lived a few hundred years after Joseph, the guy who saved the children of Israel from starvation by bringing them to Egypt. The move to the land of plenty was a glorious salvation. By time Moses was born, the children of Israel became lazy followers. They expected the leader, Pharaoh, to fe

Authentic baptism
Last week, I was asked by Chris to come watch his baptism. He decided he wanted to be baptized in the Susquehanna River. The day was lovely. The event was touching. Chris’ family was there and church friends. We all sang: Shall we gather at the river? By Robert Lowry, 1864 Shall we gather

Human intentions are secondary to the intentions of the Holy Spirit
Promises generally come with good intentions, however, neither the promise or the intentions have the power to fulfill themselves unless resolve, endurance, diligence, aplomb, grit, and common sense pulls through. Human promises are inert without the Holy Spirit. Promises fall out of our mouths a

Cats howling
Beautiful day yesterday. Had all the house windows open to feel the fresh air. I was cleaning the floor on my hands and knees and faintly heard howling angry cats. I drop my cloth, run to the back door, put on my rubber boots and dash down the driveway to find the source of the bawling. There
