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.

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

When I was a child, eating smoked salmon was always a massive treat because it was so expensive. It's cheaper now, but still fantastic. Just take care when seasoning the dish because the salmon is already salty.

Torta di Polenta con Arance e CointreauPolenta Cake with Oranges & Cointreau

This is such a beautiful cake to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea. Alternatively, serve it with a dollop of mascarpone on the side as a dessert. My kids, however, won’t thank me for this recipe as they think every dessert should be about chocolate! You can substitute the Cointreau with a citrusy Limoncello if you prefer.

Cozze allo ZafferanoQuick Mussel Stew with Saffron & White Wine

Mussels are by far the main shell fish that we eat in Naples, therefore, as you can imagine, I have grown up eating mussels in many different ways. Of course traditionally we would never use double cream, but for this particular dish it works perfectly. If you buy saffron strands instead of the powder, please make sure that you grind it before using it. Never use red wine for this recipe.

Torta Al CaffeCoffee and Ricotta Tart

Every Italian loves coffee but I have decided to dedicate this recipe to my good friend Peter Andre. I have never met another man that loves coffee more than I do, so this delicious coffee and ricotta tart is especially for those of you who are like us. The creamy ricotta cheese paired with the strong coffee is amazing.
