Ingredients: Bread Pudding (from here)
8 cups cubed day-old bread (I used Challah)
2 and 1/4 cups whole milk
1 and 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tablespoon butter
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
Recipe: Bread Pudding
Place bread cubes in a buttered 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, butter, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour evenly over bread and sprinkle on dried cherries.
Bake, uncovered, at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting and pouring on chocolate sauce.
Melt together the cream and butter over medium-high heat, add the chocolate and mix until smooth. Let cool.
