What a great way to use leftover bread. DH added milk choc chips to his...I add white. MMM...MMM...Good!
I couldn't find callah bread so used a sweet french instead, this was very easy, the smell was heavenly and even with the chocolate chips the chocolate flavor stayed mellow, perfect for us as we don't like anything to rich or too sweet. Great comfort food!
Really good! I only had a 2 1/2 quart pan, so I filled it about halfway up with bread and that seemed to do the trick. This was so easy to make, and was great even with just skim milk (I'm a cream lover). I added the chips to the top five minutes before it was done, and I highly suggest using them. The more chocolate, the better! We served with ice cream.
Simple to follow instructions, and a quick to make and really delicious dessert. I used 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of honey, and I added chopped pecans, about 5 minutes before the end of the cooking time. If you are planning to make this, it’s really worth buying challah and not substituting some other bread. If you are not familiar with it, challah is sweeter than most other breads and has a distinctive texture. Real comfort food: just yummy! I ate mine with a generous dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt.
Follwed your recipe exactly and used the choc chips. YUM! Served warm with some vanilla ice cream- so good!
This is a great way to get your chocolate fix without having to feel guilty. I made this with Charmed's Bread Machine Challah Bread Machine Challah. I also used soy milk and Egg Beaters for dietary reasons. This came out with a very enjoyable custardy taste and a nice, light chocolate flavor. I bet it would be excellent with the optional chocolate chips. UPDATE: I wanted to raise my rating to 5 stars. Yesterday I just scooped the pudding off the top, but today I mixed it up and discovered that most of the chocolatey goodness was at the bottom of the dish! I would highly recommend stirring this up well before serving. It makes a big difference! By the way, this is great both hot and cold.
