Chocolate Bread & Butter Pudding (Delia Smith)

A very yummy addictive chocolaty dessert!

Saw this the first time from Kit from I-Lost in Austen, and I was drooling I told myself I must make too :)

What you need:

9 slices of stale bread, crust removed
170g dark chocolate, chopped (original recipe 150g)
425ml whipping cream
4 tbsp dark rum
75g butter
3 eggs
110g sugar
1/3 tsp cinnamon (I omitted)
semi sweet chocolate chips - to sprinkle (my addition)

  1. Cut each slice of bread into 4 triangles, set aside
  2. On a double boiler, combine chocolate, cream, rum, butter and sugar
  3. Cook til chocolate and butter melted and sugar dissolved. Remove from heat and stir well
  4. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and pour chocolate mixture over it and whisk til well mixed
  5. Pour mixture into ramekins (about 1cm high), arrange half of the bread triangles over it in overlapping rows
  6. Pour half the remaining mixture all over the bread then arrange the rest of the bread triangles over it. Pour the remaining mixture over it 
  7. Press the bread down gently using fork so its covered evenly with the liquid as it cools
  8. Cover ramekins with cling wrap, let stand at room temperature for 2 hours then keep in the fridge overnight
  9. Preheat oven to 180degC. Remove pudding from the oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake on high shelf for 35mins
  10. Let to stand for 10mins  before serving, with pouring cream of ice cream :)
