What more could you ask for? White chocolate and raspberries added to one of the best comfort foods ever, bread pudding. I am sure this will be one of those desserts that you will unashamedly hide  in the nearest dark closet with a flash light to eat.

  • 8 ounces French bread, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 c. milk (do not use low-fat or non-fat)
  • 3 c.  heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 18 oz. white chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 c. frozen raspberries
  • 7 large egg yolks
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

1.  Preheat oven to 275°F. Arrange bread cubes on baking sheet. Bake until light golden and dry, about 10 minutes. Transfer baking sheet to rack; cool completely. Increase oven temperature to 350°F.

2.  Combine 3 cups whipping cream, 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup sugar in heavy large saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Add 10 ounces white chocolate (about 1 3/4 cups) and stir until melted and smooth. Whisk yolks and eggs in large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in warm chocolate mixture.

3.  Place bread cubes in 2-quart glass baking dish, along with frozen raspberries.  Add half of chocolate mixture. Press bread cubes into chocolate mixture. Let stand 15 minutes. Fold  in remaining chocolate mix. Cover dish with foil.

4.  Bake pudding 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, 10 – 15 minutes. Transfer pudding to rack and cool slightly.

5. Bring remaining 1/2 cup cream to simmer in heavy medium saucepan. Remove saucepan from heat. Add remaining 8 ounces white chocolate and stir until melted and smooth.

Serve pudding warm with warm white chocolate sauce.

    Sounds great! I’ll have to try this once I can pick some fresh raspberries this summer.
