Prep time: 15 minutes Total time: 1 hr
1 pound loaf cinnamon bread (we make our own)
2½-3 cups whole milk (use 2½ cups for drier bread pudding, 3 cups for moister texture)
2-2½ cups sugar (start with 2 cups, add more to taste)
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips (optional)
¼ cup butter, melted
1 cup heavy/whipping cream
Soak bread in milk, crushing to mix thoroughly. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, and chocolate chips, mixing well.
Pour melted butter into 2-quart casserole dish or evenly in 6-8 ramekins. Add bread mixture,
Bake at 350F degrees until firm.
Whip heavy cream with mixer on high until stiff (tip: place bowl in freezer for 10 minutes before whipping).
