How to make it

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm the milk just until you see bubbles forming around the edge of the pan.
  • Remove from heat, add 8 oz of the chocolate, and let stand until the chocolate has melted. Whisk until smooth.
  • Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Put the diced bread in the cooker.
  • With a whisk or electic mixer, vigorously beat together the whole eggs and yolks, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, vanilla, and cocoa in a medium bowl until pale and thick.
  • Slowly drizzle in the warm chocolate mixture and cream.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the slow cooker over the bread cubes and push down the bread to moisten evenly.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours, to soak the bread.
  • Fold in the remaining 4 oz of broken-up chocolate. Dot with the butter and sprinkle with the remaining 2 T of raw or granulated sugar.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH until the pudding is puffed, wiggles slightly in the center, and a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should read 190°.
  • Remove the lid and cook on HIGH another 15 minutes.
  • Turn off the cooker, cover, and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving.
  • When ready to serve, combine the creme fraiche and confectioners sugar in a small bowl and beat until soft peaks are formed.
  • Serve the pudding with a dollop of the creme fraiche.
  • Chocolate Custard Bread Pudding with Cherries: Toss 12 pitted fresh bing cherries with the bread cubes before pouring the custard over.

    OMG!!! This sounds so rich and yummy!!! I love Valinkenmore's idea of whiskey sauce with this!

    Should I double this recipe? My slow cooker is a 6.5 quart size.
