Cherry Bread Pudding with Chocolate Sauce
If you like bread pudding, cherries, and chocolate you will love this. Soft warm cinnamon-y bread pudding filled with dried cherries and covered in homemade chocolate sauce. Absolutely delicious.
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.
I’ve just started to make bread pudding and this one looks luscious! That chocolate sauce is just the “icing on the cake!” fun recipe– i’ll let you know how it comes out here…
I love cherry anything. Bread pudding just got a face lift!
This looks like a perfect winter warming dish!
Luxurious! Tasty looking. And I love how elegant and tidy it looks even with the chocolate sauce all over it. I wish I could make my bread pudding less of a hot mess of goopy blobbiness! And I love anything with cherries!
This looks very moorish – would have to have this in lieu of a meal!
Man Chloe, this looks soooo yummy!
That is such a good photo!!
I love bread pudding! For some reason, nobody eats or even likes bread pudding where I live in Canada. Yours looks scrumptious.
Oh yum! I am SUCH a bread-pudding fan! I make my own bread which is great but it does not keep for long so I always have left over dried bread to make some pudding with! I usually make it with chocolate chips or raising – but CHERRY? Oh yes!! 🙂
