Torta di Pane al Cioccolato
Chocolate and Rum Bread & Butter Pudding

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious chocolate recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my chocolate and rum bread & butter pudding for you to enjoy.

To tell you the truth I am such a big fan of bread and butter pudding that I had to create my own version of this great dish. The rum with the chocolate is absolutely divine and with a pinch of cinnamon, it’s a marriage made in heaven. My only tip for this recipe is to make sure that it rests into the fridge for at least six hours before cooking – this will give you a fantastic soufflé effect when it’s ready.

Feast your eyes on the finest chocolate and rum bread & butter pudding! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Remove the crusts from the bread and cut each slice into 4 triangles.
  2. Place the chocolate, whipping cream, rum, butter, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl set over a saucepan with simmering water. Be careful not to let the bowl touch the water. Once the butter and chocolate have melted and the sugar is completely dissolved, remove the bowl from the heat and stir to amalgamate the ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and then pour the chocolate mixture over them and whisk again to blend everything together.
  4. Lightly butter a shallow ovenproof dish measuring about 18 x 23 x 5cm.
  5. Pour about a 1cm layer of chocolate mixture into the base of the dish and arrange half the bread triangles over the chocolate in overlapping rows.
  6. Pour half the remaining chocolate over the bread and arrange the rest of the triangles over that, finishing off with a layer of chocolate. Press the bread gently down so that it is evenly covered with the liquid. Leave to cool.
  7. Cover the dish with clingfilm and place in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
  8. Remove the clingfilm and bake in the middle of a preheated oven at 180º for 35 minutes until the top gets crunchy and the inside soft and squidgy.
  9. Remove from the oven, leave to relax for approx 5 minutes and serve with plenty of chilled double cream poured all over.

Like most great concoctions, this dessert was created by chance when my wife bought a bottle of Baileys liqueur for one of our dinner guests. I thought I’d try it in the panna cotta I was making... All I can say is 'wow'!

Frittelle di zucchine con pecorinoCourgette Fritters With Pecorino

Whenever we are in Olbia, a port town on the northeast coast of Sardinia near my home, we order courgette fritters instead of chips. They make a great side dish or snack, but if you include cheese, as I have done here, they make a more substantial first course. Pecorino sardo, a traditional Sardinian hard cheese made from sheep’s milk – is similar to the better-known pecorino romano (which...

Quattro StagioniFour Seasons Pizza Topped with Ham, Artichokes, Mushrooms and Olives

Globe artichokes are used a lot in Europe, and especially in Italy, but don’t seem to be very popular here in England. However, artichoke hearts are essential on this pizza as they work beautifully with the ham, mushrooms and olives. I have tried making this recipe with rocket leaves instead of the mushrooms and it’s just as good. A classic Italian four seasons pizza that just reminds me of home. Makes...

Rigatoni con asparagi, piselli e funghiRigatoni with peas and porcini mushrooms in a creamy asparagus sauce

For anybody who isn’t a big fan of rich tomato sauces this has to be the perfect pasta recipe if you still want bags of flavour on your plate. This dish is so full of fresh ingredients that even though it’s in a creamy sauce it doesn’t feel heavy. I must admit that every time I make this for a vegetarian they utterly love me – so it must be good.

Spiedini di AgnelloSkewered Marinated Lamb with Rosemary & Mint

Often people have this misconception that you can only make meat skewers in the summer and cooked on a BBQ – this is not the case.  Make sure once the skewers are ready to be cooked that your griddle pan is very very hot to enable the meat not to get stuck to the pan.  Use sirloin steak if you prefer and if you don’t like mushrooms substitute it with shallot onions.
