Chocolate Bread Pudding

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This recipe goes back to my grandmother. She was a wonderful cook and had to make do with what she had. I guess they all had leftover homemade bread. This sounds like it is toooo simple to be good, but we love it. It has a wonderful flavor.

Too soggy and not enough chocolate. Next time I'll use less milk, more cocoa and maybe add some berries or chocolate chips.

*The sogginess could have been because I had to use skim milk so I'm not taking any stars off for that. But this still didn't satisfy my lust for chocolate so it only gets 4 out of 5. Overall it was good but not what I was hoping for.
