How to make the Bread Pudding
Spray a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Next, break up the loaf of French bread and place it in the casserole dish.
Mix eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, and milk in a sauce pan over low medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Do not let the mixture boil.
Pour the mixture over the bread and add the chocolate; lightly stir the chips into the bread mixture, then let the bread soak for at least 15-20 minutes. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree preheated oven for 45 minutes.
While the bread pudding is baking in the oven, you’ll make the rum sauce. We use rum extract instead of alcohol. Please see the recipe card below for the full recipe.
Once the bread pudding comes out of the oven and the rum sauce is made, you could pour it over the entire pan of bread or serve it separately as we do.
