Low carb recipe for Helen's Chocolate Bread Pudding which belongs to the Sweets recipe category.
- 2 cups (480 ml) half-and-half
- 1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
- 1 cup (240 ml) water
- 6 slices "lite" White Bread (5 grams of usable carbs per slice or less?the squishiest you can find)
- 3 ounces (84 g) unsweetened baking chocolate
- cup (16 g) Splenda
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Pinch salt
Preheat the oven to 375F (190C, or gas mark 5).
Combine the half-and-half, cream, and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring it just up to a simmer.
While it's heating, spray a large casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray, tear the bread into small bits, and put them in the dish.
Pour the hot halfand- half mixture over the bread and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and add it to the bread mixture; it's good to use a little of the hot cream to rinse out the pan you melted the chocolate in so you get all of it.
Now stir in the Splenda, eggs, vanilla, and salt, mixing very well.
Bake for 1 hour or until firm.
Serve with Not-So-Hard Sauce
