Default NEW ORLEANS CLASSIC DESSERTS

A friend gave me a great little book yesterday, New Orleans Classic
Desserts, just published. Wonderful recipes from famous New Orleans
restaurants and chefs with a gorgeous picture for each recipe. Made
the Bread Pudding last night and it was a huge success. Lots more to
try and keep my sweet tooth happy. Next one will be Leah Chase's Sweet
Potato Pie!

Decadent Chocolate Bread Pudding

chocolate, desserts

1 1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup plus 2 t sugar
10 oz finely chopped semi-sweet
1 chocolate or chips
6 egg yolks
5 oz butter, cut into pieces
6 egg whites
5 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cup 1/4 diced white bread

Bring the sugar and cream to a boil, and remove from the heat.

Add the chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips) stirring until
completely
melted and blended well. Add yolks, one at a time, beating well after
each.

Stir in the butter until melted. Whip the egg whites until soft peaks
form.

Add sugar when just starting to turn white, and then add vanilla and
whip
until stiff. Gently fold in the chocolate mixture. Pour over prepared
bread in a buttered 9 x 11 inch pan. Gently squeeze chocolate mixture
into
the bread with hands until completely mixed. Let sit for 30 minutes or
so
as to absorb the mixture. Add more cream if too dry.

Bake in a 350F oven in a hot water bath (halfway up the sides of the
pan)
for 45 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Cut into wedges, or cubes loosely piled together. Serve with whipped
cream.

Yield: 12 servings
