Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding w/ Kaluha Fudge Sauce + Bayou Boogie

Here's a family fave that is out of this world and is sure to please your family and guests. Luscious chocolate chip bread pudding topped with a sinful Kahlua fudge sauce and a scoop of ice cream, make this a perfect summertime treat. When I tell you that it's heavenly, then you know that I mean it, cher! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding w/ Kahlua Fudge Sauce

1 lb. cubed day old French bread (6 cups)
1 cup sugar 
4 large eggs 
1 tsp. vanilla extract 
3 cups milk 
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Spray a baking dish (9 x 11 inch) with Baker's Joy and line with  French bread cubes. In medium mixing bowl, beat together sugar and eggs, until light and fluffy. Add milk and vanilla and beat until combined. Pour over bread cubes and let soak for 30 minutes.

Stir in chocolate chips and pecan pieces until evenly dispensed throughout the bread pudding. Place in a larger baking pan filled with 1 1/2 inches of water and  bake in a preheated 350 degree oven, for 45 to 50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
Kahlua Fudge Sauce

1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/4 cup sugar 
1/2 cup Kahlua
2 tbs.'s cornstarch 
1 tbs. water

In a small sauce pan, heat heavy cream, sugar and Kahlua over  medium heat. Combine cornstarch and water and mix until cornstarch is dissolved. Whisk into cream mixture and stir until thickened. Top individual servings of bread pudding with sauce and a scoop of ice cream, and maybe a little whipped cream, topped with a cherry. Yum!

Bayou Boogie

Here's a little clip of one of Cajun country's favorite dance bands playing a fast two step.. Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys were really rockin' the crowd at this year's Gator by the Bay Festival. Crank it up for this one, cher, and let the good times roll!

 Hope that ya'll are having a super summer weekend! Merci beaucoup for coming by!

I love bread pudding. My MIL makes a fantastic one with fresh peaches. Being from New Orleans I'm spoiled and don't ever get bread pudding at restaurants here in Texas. They're just never as good as home-made. This one of yours looks wonderful.
