Chocolate Chip and Cherry Bread Pudding
INGREDIENTS

1            loaf (1 pound) challah bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 10 cups)


½           cup semi- or bittersweet chocolate chips


13         cup dried cherries


4            large eggs, lightly beaten


13         cup granulated sugar


½           teaspoon kosher salt


1½         cups whole milk


1½         cups heavy cream


2            teaspoons pure vanilla extract


              nonstick cooking spray (or softened butter)

Instructions

1.   Place the bread cubes, chocolate chips and cherries in a large bowl.  Toss to combine; reserve.


2.   Put the eggs, sugar and salt into a mixing bowl and whisk until light and frothy.  Add the milk, heavy cream and vanilla and continue to whisk until well combined.  Pour liquid mixture over the bread and chips.  Gently stir to fully coat.  Cover with plastic and allow to rest in the refrigerator for a minimum of 3 hours, and up to overnight.


3.  Preheat oven to Bake at 350°F with the rack in the lower position.


4.   Lightly coat a 9-inch round baking pan with the nonstick spray (or brush with butter).  Transfer the soaked bread mixture into the pan.  Lightly cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.  Bread pudding is done when it is nicely puffed and the internal temperature registers 160°F.  Serve immediately with freshly whipped cream.
