Have no date? Nothing to do on a Friday night? Well then make this fast and easy chocolate bread pudding- this consolation prize will make all your really-busy-‘cuz-I-have-a-life-friends super jealous and break up with their lousy boyfriends and want to spend their Friday nights eating this with you. But their sudden stroke of genius will be too late, because you’ve already used your magic bread pudding to wheedle your way through the stomach and into the heart of that cute trust fund baby you’ve had your eye on since for-evah!
I credit my mum (no I’m not British, but it’s really fun to say mom that way) with this recipe. It’s pure delicious genius!
Friday Night Consolation Prize Chocolate Bread Pudding
4 cups of brioche bread cut up into chunks
2 bars of milk chocolate Scharffen Berger cut up into pieces
1 cup of heavy cream
3 cups of milk
1 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tsp. of Vanilla extract
zest of 1 orange
Butter casserole pan. Put chunked up bread into pan in layers alternating with the pieces of Scharffen Berger. You want to disperse the chocolate so that when you bite into the bread pudding you have a chocolate chunk here and there. Lastly mix all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, mixing really well. Then pour it over the bread chunks in the buttered casserole. If need be and if the bread is still too dry you may add extra milk (1/4 cup max).
Put in 350 oven for 35 minutes until puffy and golden. Viola! Yum to da tum:)
