Chocolate Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is a popular dessert from the United Kingdom. Early American colonists brought this scrumptious recipe with them when they settled. It has been a favorite dessert in Southern households ever since. 

Years ago, bakers and cooks did all kinds of things to avoid wasting food. Bread pudding was a solution to leftover pieces of stale bread.  This rich flavorful dessert can be served hot from the oven.  Or, as with this recipe, it can be served cold and turned onto a separate dish. Plan ahead, this bread pudding needs to rest for at least eight hours after it is baked. 

The traditional version of bread pudding without chocolate can be found in our Bread Pudding Recipe. Either version is sure to be a favorite.
