Triple Chocolate Bread Pudding

Fran recently shared the recipe for her triple chocolate bread pudding with WBTV, check her out on QC Life!

Here’s how you can make this super sweet dessert at home:

Ingredients: 

1 baguette, diced in 2 x 2 inch squares

2 cups granulated sugar

11 eggs

4 cups half & half

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder 

1/2 c. chopped milk chocolate

1/2 c. chopped semi-sweet chocolate 

1/2 c. chopped white chocolate

Directions: 

1. Spray a 10 x 12 inch pan or similar with pan spray and then sprinkle 1/2 c. sugar over the bottom of the pan. Place diced bread in the pan in an even layer. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, 1 c. sugar, half & half, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla until incorporated and well blended. Pour over bread. Let soak for 20-25 minutes to allow the bread to soak up the custard. When time is up, pour the remaining 1/2 c. sugar over bread.

2. Wrap pan in plastic wrap, then foil. Place in a preheated 350-degree oven and bake for 35-40 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. The pudding should jiggle very slightly in the center, but otherwise, be set and puffed.

3. Remove from oven and let rest 1 hour before serving with whipped cream, caramel sauce, and fresh berries if desired. Serves 10-12 generously.
