Chocolate-Walnut Bread Pudding

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Lightly coat the inside of a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan heat milk over medium heat until very warm but not boiling. Remove from heat. Add chocolate pieces and cocoa powder (do not stir); let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth; cool slightly (about 10 minutes).
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and chocolate mixture. Gently stir in bread cubes and walnuts. Transfer bread mixture to the prepared cooker.
  4. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for about 2-1/2 hours or until a knife inserted near center of pudding comes out clean (mixture will puff). Remove crockery liner from cooker, if possible, or turn off cooker. Cool, uncovered, for 30 minutes (pudding will fall as it cools).
  5. To serve, spoon warm pudding into dessert dishes. Top each serving with Coffee-Cream Sauce.

From the Test Kitchen

To cube and dry bread, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Cut 1/2-inch bread slices into 1/2-inch cubes. Spread bread cubes in a single layer in a 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice. Cool. (Cubes continue to dry and crisp as they cool.)

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your pudding is finished cooking, spoon it out of your slow cooker. Once the food is out of your slow cooker liner, simply dispose of the liner. Note: Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.

Coffee-Cream Sauce

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan stir together sugar and cornstarch. Add cream, coffee, and liqueur. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Drizzle sauce over bread pudding.
