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.
