Chocolate Bread Pudding

Makes: 8 servings
Prep 20 mins Cook 2 hrs 30 mins  on (low) Stand 30 mins
Chocolate Bread Pudding
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3  cups  milk
  • 3/4  cup  semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 3/4  cup  presweetened cocoa powder
  • 3  eggs, lightly beaten
  • 5  cups  cubed Hawaiian sweet bread or cinnamon-swirl bread (no raisins) (1/2-inch cubes), dried*
  •  Whipped cream (optional)
  •  Presweetened cocoa powder (optional)
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 the 3/4 cup 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. Transfer bread mixture to the prepared cooker.

4. Cover and cook on low-heat setting (do not use high-heat setting) for about 2 1/2 hours or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean (mixture will puff).

5. Remove liner from cooker, if possible, or turn off cooker. Let pudding stand, uncovered, for 30 minutes to cool slightly before serving (pudding will fall as it cools).

6. To serve, spoon warm pudding into dessert dishes. If desired, top each serving with whipped cream and sprinkle with additional presweetened cocoa powder.

From the Test Kitchen*Test Kitchen Tip:
  • To dry bread cubes, spread fresh bread cubes in a single layer in a 15 1/2x10 1/2x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degrees F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice. Cool. (Cubes will continue to dry and crisp as they cool.)
