Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 2-qt. square baking dish. Place bread cubes, raisins, and, if desired, nuts in the dish. In a medium bowl whisk together 2/3 cup of the sweetened condensed milk, 2/3 cup milk, and the next five ingredients (through vanilla). Pour over bread mixture in dish. Use a spatula to press bread down into the milk mixture.

  • Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes or until puffed and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan melt chocolate over low. Stir in remaining sweetened condensed milk and 2 to 3 Tbsp. milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle chocolate over each serving of bread pudding.


To dry bread, spread bread cubes in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Cover loosely and let stand overnight or bake in a 300°F oven 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Bread will continue to dry as it cools.
