Individual Orange & Chocolate Bread Puddings

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

You can assemble the bread puddings and keep them in the refrigerator up to a day ahead. Remove them from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking, let them come up to room temperature, and bake them when ready to serve.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices good-quality American-style white bread (about 8 oz.)
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened; more for the ramekins
  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 3 oz. (1/2 cup) chopped semisweet chocolate (or 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Preparation

  • Heat the oven to 375°F. Lightly butter four 1-1/4-cup ramekins. Remove the crusts from the bread and spread one side with the butter and marmalade. Cut the bread into quarters and arrange four quarters in the base of each ramekin, overlapping to fit. Sprinkle with half of the chocolate and repeat with the remaining bread and chocolate to make two layers.
  • Whisk the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl or large glass measuring cup. Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Set the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake until puffed and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

    These looked lovely and the contrast of the orange with the chocolate was intriguing, but they did not firm up as bread puddings that use stale bread do. They were very soggy and soft despite the allotted cooking time. It would be hard to adjust this recipe so that the bread was stale while spreading the butter and orange marmalade on the stale pieces and still be able to fit it into individual cups (it would be much easier to do so if it was all made in a larger single dish).

    Loved this dessert! It's so easy and looks kind of impressive, because it puffs up high in the oven. Maybe more of an adult dessert. My young children did like it, though they like dark chocolate.

    I made these to use up some leftover challah. I love orange and chocolate together. If I made these again, I'd probably use slightly less chocolate.
