  7. Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -- -- --

  8. 6 ounces chocolate (semisweet or white) -- melted

  9. 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  10. 1/2 teaspoon salt

  11. 1 teaspoon cinnamon -- ground

  12. 1 1/2 cups milk

  13. 2 eggs -- lightly beatenn

  14. 2 1/2 cups bread cubes -- small

  15. Butter four 1-cup ramekins or six custard cups and place them on a cookie

  16. sheet. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the melted chocolate, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir the milk in

  17. slowly and then add the eggs. Beat the entire mixture with a whisk until

  18. well blended. Stir in the bread cubes and let them soak for a few minutes.

  19. Beat the pudding with a whi s k again. The bread cubes should fall apart

  20. somewhat. Divide the pudding between the ramekins or custard cups and put them, cookie

  21. sheet and all, into the oven. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges look

  22. done (spongy, like a cake) and the middle is just under done. Cool for 15 minutes and serve or cool completely, wrap, and store in the

  23. 3 to 4 days, at least, if refrigerated. The

  24. puddings can be warmed in a microwave oven at medium power. The original recipe has half as much cinnamon and eggs. I added the extra

  25. egg to make the pudding slightly custardy. If you can get them, Guittard's Vanilla Milk Chips do quite well in this

  26. recipe in place of the chocolate. If you use a crusty bread, trim crusts from bread before using. I usually

  27. use Pepperidge Farm's white bread and I don't trim. I think the average

  28. American white bread is not firm enough. I have used a purchased whole wheat

  29. granola bread with quite g o od results. I think this recipe could easily be

  30. altered to include nuts, chopped dates, chopped dried apples and/or raisins. For a richer pudding, try using leftover cake instead of bread. Once I even

  31. baked a small cake from a mix and chopped that up for this recipe. One layer

  32. makes a double batch. (It was a Dutch chocolate cake, how decadent!) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
