Ingredients
Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish and place the bread in the dish. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, and liqueur. Using another bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, and cocoa powder and mix well. Add the sugar mixture to the milk mixture and mix well. Add the vanilla and almond extract, and cinnamon to the beaten eggs. Combine the egg mixture to the milk mixture and mix well.

Stir the grated chocolate into the mixture. Pour the mixture over the cubed bread in the pan. Let the mixture stand, stirring occasionally for approximately 20 minutes or until bread absorbs most of the milk mixture. Bake pudding for 1 hour or until set. Check pudding by inserting a knife through the middle and it should come out clean.

Serve the pudding warm, or refrigerate and serve chilled with whipped cream if desired.

Read all the 5-star reviews--most have major modifications! This is nasty as written....BUT, take out the almond extract and Kahlua, and bump up the chocolate (6 tablespoons cocoa, 12 oz. chocolate chips, divided), it is great. Specifically, I used challah (16 oz.), omitted the almond and vanilla extracts, and replaced the Kahlua with 1/2 cup brewed coffee. I melted 6 tbsp cocoa and 1/2 bag chocolate chips into 1 cup of the milk called for in the recipe, then added this to the batter; stirred in rest of the bag of unmelted chips. Can toss it all together in the a.m., then cook in greased 6 qt slow cooker 4 hrs on low, and keeps warm for hours, for a party. Fantastic--but not the original recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy! I used mocha Kahlua as that is what I had on hand. I used chocolate chips because I failed at chopping them in the Ninja blender. I would recommend topping this with homemade whipped cream (Thanks Ninja!). It helps to cut the sweetness. Sent to work with the spouse, people have requested me to make for the next team event! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this several times just as the recipe states, except I cheat and use semi-sweet chocolate chips. I serve it with a warm white rum sauce. It's the best & everyone loves it! I LOVE the extract flavors!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband is not a bread pudding fan, but had seen a chocolate bread pudding on tv last night and said he wanted to try it. I immediately thought of your website and found a recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand and my son and I whipped up a batch. It was a hit with the whole family. We will be making this again. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Take out the almond extract and this is amazing! I make this all the time for holidays and parties and everyone loves it. Best served warm with some warm heavy cream poured over the top. I will never use another recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious. I did cut down on the almond extract--but only by a little!! I can't stop making it and I can't stop eating it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We were very disappointed in this recipe, seemed to be too many competing flavors. We decided that it was either the almond extract, the Kahlua, or both which just seemed out of place. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Liqueur taste too strong. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was fantastic! Although, I did cut down on the sugar. I used 1/2 cup granulated and 1/2 cup brown. 2 full cups of sugar just sounded way too sweet to me. The chocolate was amazing! I will definitely be making this recipe often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm afraid I found this recipe far too cloying and sweet. The ingredients fought with one another. There was no subtlety. The almond extract was overpowering and the coffee liquer added only calories. My guests, one of whom is a bread pudding fanatic, picked at their portions and left some behind on their plates. Sadly I used very good chocolate and thought it wasted. I would not bother to make this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you so much for your suggestions. I did exactly what you said and it turned out excellent. I sort of felt it need more chocolate and I am so glad I read your review for making the recipe. :-) item not reviewed by moderator and published
