This is a fun recipe because the chocolate makes it different from traditional bread pudding. It's a rich, comforting dessert. —Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas

  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices day-old bread, crusts removed and cut into cubes (about 3 cups)
  • Optional toppings: Confectioners' sugar and whipped cream


  1. In a small microwave-wave bowl, melt chocolate; stir until smooth.
  2. Stir in cream; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the sugar, milk, egg, vanilla and salt. Stir in chocolate mixture. Add bread cubes and toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  4. Spoon into 2 greased 2-cup souffle dishes. Bake at 350° until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and top with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.

    Absolutely delicious. Especially good when served with melted semisweet chocolate or hot fudge sauce. I shared the recipe with my sister who used banana bread and said it was a hit with her friends.
