Chocolate Fridays - Bread

There are so many possibilities when you make Chocolate Bread. Not only do you have, chocolate bread (which let's face it is wonderful by itself)) but you have the ability to make a number of other delicious desserts and breakfast options for those of you who think chocolate for breakfast is a good idea.

You might be thinking this is the type of chocolate bread that resembles a chocolate pound cake. It's not. This recipe is a yeast-style chocolate bread. As I continue to bake through the book, "Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day," I seem to find more recipes that are easy, take relatively little time and seem to be better than the last.
Once I made Chocolate Bread, I decided to use the two large loaves it provided to make other desserts. I made Chocolate French Toast (use it as a dessert or breakfast) and I also made Chocolate Bread Pudding. I love a recipe that I can re-use into other amazing ideas. Its the gift that keeps on giving. 

Chocolate Bread Pudding

5 eggs
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cube or tear the loaf of chocolate bread into pieces in a 13x9 glass baking dish. In a mixing bowl, mix eggs, half & half, and vanilla together and pour over the bread. Sprinkle semi-sweet chips over the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes.


  1. Oh my! Can I come and eat at your house? Wow! That's a whole lotta chocolate going on. I want to make chocolate bread. You found this recipe in Artisan Bread in 5? How did I miss this? Gorgeous bread and pudding!

  2. I think I need this book!! Chocolate and bread is the absolute best :)

  3. Your chocolate bread looks delicious. I tried David Lebovitz's recipe a few months ago and I loved it. Funny, I missed the Artisan Bread in Five version in my book.

    It never occurred to me to make bread pudding but I love the idea--thanks for your post!

  4. Thanks to you, I now have a new book I can't wait to add to my cooking library--chocolate bread french toast? Wow. Can not wait.

  5. Wow! Chocolate Bread? Sounds too good to be true, but can't wait to try it out!!!

  6. Love that book! Me and my wife got it as a gift a couple years back, talk about the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.
