Bread Pudding Slice

Chocolate French Toast Bread Pudding – My New Favorite Breakfast.

This one started as an “Oops!” but quickly became a “Wow!” after taking that first bite. It’s dense and cakey, not custardy like a traditional bread pudding. It’s also only mildly sweet, and the marriage of chocolate and cinnamon is reminiscent of a Sunday brunch French toast. It’s also a true testament to how you can mess up in the kitchen and still (sometimes) end up with a great product.

I’ve searched high and low for the best recipe and I knew I’d found it when I came across this one. There’s just enough sugar to sweeten the chocolate and it’s so buttery and silky smooth, it goes great with a nice scoop of ice cream, chocolate sauce, or maybe some Crème Anglaise. This one is perfect for chocolate lovers! Continue reading
