Thanks for posting this, Ocean~Ivy! I'm wondering if step or two is left out since the milk, butter & egg yokes aren't mentioned in the instructions. I decided to stir them in before step 2 but didn't thicken it. Later it was hard to combine the egg whites so I'm wondering if I should have thickened the chocolate mixture. Anyhow, the result was very good, I used chopped walnuts so it was like a brownie with the texture of a bread pudding. A visit to a local creole resturant that had a fantastic chocolate bread pudding with whisky sauce inspired me to try this. They made individual servings in buttered molds that were inverted to release the pudding on a plate and theirs was a little more creamy than this. With all the eggs in this recipe, I think I'll increase the milk to 1 cup and try for a creamier result. Its very good with ingredients listed, just what you'd expect for bread pudding. This was my first attempt with a steamed pudding and I think they're Great! If you already have the steamer out for veggies, you can easily have a wonderful, steaming hot pudding ready when its time for dessert!
