We had this as part of our Thanksgiving pudding! Absolutely incredible. Rob, our resident engineer, assembled this one beautifully and made a very good call about adding more milk mid-way through the cooking. The top needs to be slightly soggy. Not crisp, but must have some chew to it.
- 6 bars of chocolate (we used milk and plain because Tesco failed us on white chocolate)
- 2 eggs
- Brown sugar (lots)
- Sultanas (lots)
- Milk - about 300ml
This is so easy; it is like building a tower:
- Place a layer of bread, butter side down in your dish.
- Add a layer of broken chocolate, sultanas and brown sugar.
- Add the next layer of bread, this time buttering both sides.
- Again, add a layer of chocolate, sultanas and brown sugar.
- Cover with bread, butter side down. Whisk two eggs with the milk (use a fork) and pour it evenly over the whole thing. Fill the gaps with chocolate.
Cook for 35 mins at 190. If it looks like it is drying out, add some more milk! Also, do not add any chocolate to the top (see picture) until half-way through because otherwise it burns and is a bit nasty.
Serve with ice cream or cream (I don't recommend both as the cream freezes onto the ice cream; I am not into that sort of thing). Beautiful.
