I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chocolate Raisin Bread Pudding

Presentation of bread pudding when baked in a loaf pan is much more appetizing than the usual bread pudding blob!

4 cups stale bread, cubed
2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsps cocoa powder
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup raisins

I keep a bag in the freezer to collect bread crusts, heels and stale pieces (any kind of bread) until I've accumulated enough for a bread pudding. Then I'm ready to cut it in chunks.

Place half the cubed bread in a greased 9 X 5" loaf pan followed by half the chocolate chips and raisins. Add the remaining bread, then the remaining chips and raisins.

Mix the milk, sugars, cocoa, eggs and vanilla together, then whisk in the melted butter. 

Ladle this mixture into the loaf pan slowly letting it seep down in between the bread. Let it sit 15 minutes. (Sorry for the blurry picture)

Cover with foil and bake on a cookie sheet (because it's pretty full!) at 375 F for 50 minutes.

Remove the foil and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Once cooled it slices perfectly!

No need for pudding sauce as it is sweet enough on it's own.
