CHOCOLATE WALNUT BREAD PUDDING WITH CARAMEL SAUCE
6 cups diced Baguette or sourdough bread cubes (or any hearty bread)
1 ¼ cup semisweet chocolate pieces
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
8 oz jar of Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauce
Preheat oven to 350°. Generously butter a 3 quart rectangular baking dish. Spread bread cubes in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with chocolate pieces and walnuts.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread mixture. Mix thoroughly to coat bread pieces and press down gently with the back of a spoon.
Bake for 50 – 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. To prevent overbrowning, cover loosely with foil for the last 5 – 10 minutes.
Scoop into bowls and serve with Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauce.
