m loves bread pudding and i love chocolate so i knew this was a dessert we could both enjoy! it is so chocolatey good!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound loaf French or Italian bread, cut into cubes (about 7 cups)
  • 1-1/2 cups skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons light cream or fat free half and half
  • 1/4 cup coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder – or –
    2-ounces melted semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 4-ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. Place the bread in the baking dish.

In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, and liqueur.

In another bowl, combine the granulated and brown sugars with the cocoa powder or 2-ounce melted chocolate chips. Mix well. Add this to the milk mixture and whisk to combine.

Add the vanilla and almond extracts and the cinnamon to the beaten eggs. Combine the egg mixture with the milk mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes; let stand, stirring occasionally, for at least 20 minutes, or until the bread has absorbed most of the milk mixture. Bake the pudding for 1 hour, or until set; a knife inserted into the center of the pudding should come out clean. Serving the pudding warm, or refrigerate it and serve chilled.

Serve it warm or cold, with whipped cream or a cream sauce.
