Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Chocolate bread pudding 1) Preheat the oven to 160C/Gas 3.

  2. Lightly grease a 33-by-23 cm baking dish and fill with bread cubes.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream and liqueur. In another bowl, combine the caster and brown sugars with the cocoa powder and mix well. Add the cocoa mixture to the milk mixture and whisk to combine.

  4. In a medium bowl, add the vanilla essence, almond essence and cinnamon to the beaten eggs. Combine the egg mixture with the milk mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes; let stand, stirring occasionally, for at least 20 minutes, or until the bread has absorbed most of the milk mixture.

  5. Bake the pudding for 1 hour, or until set; a cake tester inserted into the centre of the pudding should come out clean.

  6. Serve the pudding warm or cold, with pecan rum flambe dessert sauce.

  7. Pecan rum flambe dessert sauce:

  8. 1) In a large skillet, melt the butter and add brown sugar, stir together. Add the pecans and cook until sugar has caramelised over medium-high heat.

  9. Turn off the stove and pour in the rum. Stand back and carefully light with a long lighter. Be careful; a flame will shoot up above the pan. As the alcohol cooks out, the flame will die down.

  10. Serve over chocolate bread pudding.
