Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
Makes 6 Servings

You can start this dessert a day ahead and bake it in the time you are preparing and serving dinner. Microwave the leftovers for a nourishing breakfast.

3 cups firm white bread cubes
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 large eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream (I used evaporated milk)
Vanilla ice cream
Chocolate syrup

Generously butter a 2-quart baking dish or casserole. Combine bread and chocolate chips in the buttered dish.

Whisk together eggs, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in milk and cream. Drizzle over bread cube mixture; wrap tightly and refrigerate until ready to bake--several hours or overnight.

At least 1 1/2 hours before serving, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover baking dish and place on rimmed baking sheet.

Bake pudding until golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly before serving.

To serve, divide pudding among 6 bowls. Top with ice cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
