Chocolate Chip Cherry Bread Pudding

Ever wonder what to do with stale bread? I always feel bad throwing it away....
Solution: Bread Pudding. It's like French toast, in a bowl. Yum.


Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 5ish minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups stale bread in cubes (make sure there's no mold or anything else that looks suspicious....)
  • small handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk (I used soy milk because I don't usually have cow's milk in stock but either is fine)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg in small bowl.
2. Evenly spread bread, cherries, and chocolate chips in quart-sized baking dish.
3. Pour egg mixture over bread mixture.
4. Using a wooden spoon, press down on bread so everything gets a good soaking. If your bread is as stale as mine, you might need to give it a few minutes before you can do any squishing.
5. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
6. Serve warm, topped with cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or vanilla ice cream!
