This is such a good and easy dessert to make. I recently made it for a potluck (which is perfect because you can eat it warm or room temp or even cold) and I enjoyed it so much, I made a batch for home just a few days later. This is really good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
8 slices cinnamon raisin bread
2 cups milk
4 oz chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
confections sugar for dusting (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray or butter a 9 inch square baking dish. Toast the
bread and tear each slice into four pieces. Place them in baking dish. Heat chocolate, milk and butter over med until chocolate is melted (stirring frequently). Whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Slowly add the milk/chocolate mixture and stir until combined. Pour over bread and bake 25 minutes. Cool for about 15 minutes and top with confectioners sugar (if using). Otherwise, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
