Made this today for dessert to accompany a tradition English dinner of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding... and it was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal. It was easy to prepare while things were cooking and popped in the oven when the roast came out. Served it with whipped cream to keep it simple... and the kids raved about it. DD couldn't stop commenting on how good it was. Definitely a keeper!

WOW! This is really good! I had some really great chocolate on hand that I have been waiting to use for just the right recipe, and this..THIS was the recipe! I used some wonderful challah from a local bakery. The mixture filled my 9X13 pan to the brim, and when it came out of the oven... I uncovered it, and I was amazed at how lovely it looked...all puffed up! I cannot find words to tell you how beautiful and how delicious this bread pudding is. I didnt have all of the ingredients on hand for the sauce, so I used the whipped cream as you mentioned. After tasting it, I think the sauce may have taken away from the elegance of the bread pudding. I just want to savor the chocolate goodness of this pudding!.. I dont want any sauce to hide it! Thanks for the recipe. Its a keeper!

Tremendously rich (I did use 50% more chocolate than it called for; who wants half a bag of chips laying around?). Served with a chocolate whipped cream.

I can add this to the list of bread puddings I like. Normally I loath bread pudding but for some reason I keep looking for recipes for it; I think it's the old fashioned homey appeal thing & this one, along with my recipe for bread pudding that I have in here, are the only ones I like. This is creamy, very rich and satisfies the chocolate cravings quite nicely
