Toasted Cinnamon Raisin Bread that is magically transformed into Chocolate Bread Pudding. Then top off a scoop with Kahlua Cream Sauce!

The BEST bread pudding ever. With tons of chocolate chips and made with cinnamon raisin bread. Then topped with Kahlua Cream Sauce,

Chocolate and Walnut Bread Pudding with Kahlua Cream Sauce

O. M. G!

This was THE dessert of the month! And my husband ate every single bite!

As he was licking the bowl clean, he very strongly told me to never make this again. And then he had a second bowl! I was shocked! SHOCKED I tell ya. This was made with cinnamon raisin bread and the man hates raisins. I didn’t have the heart to tell him what was in it.

So not your basic bread pudding. This one is full of chocolate, walnuts, and covered in Kahlua cream sauce.

It’s kinda like that sometimes. You sit down to a “normal” meal and only later you find out what was in it. I have no idea that there were anchovies and raw eggs in Caesar dressing. No. Clue. I also had no idea that the delicious crock pot meatballs I was really enjoying were made with a jar of grape jelly. I was so confused with that one!

So, I just didn’t have the heart to ruin my husbands joy while he was eating this bread pudding.

It was so decadent! Cinnamon Raisin Bread, chocolate chunks, walnuts, and then topped with the Kahlua sauce I made! So yummy! I definitely had to make up the calories in this.

Amazing Bread Pudding that is sure to be a crowd pleaser! This was so fantastically good! You gotta make it ASAP!

I was so pleased with this dessert. The original recipe called for basic loaf of french bread, which is fine… but the cinnamon and chocolate paired so nicely! It really was a magical dessert.

Chocolate and Walnut Bread Pudding

Chocolate and Walnut Bread Pudding

Homemade Cinnamon Raisin Bread turned into a bread pudding with chocolate chunks and walnuts then topped with a Kahlua Cream sauce. It doesn't get more decadent than this.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 6 cups dried Cinnamon Raisin Bread
  • 1 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chunks or chips
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Kahlua Cream Sauce


    1. Toast your bread chunks if the bread is still fresh. Preheat oven to 300 deg F and rip bread into bite-sized chunks and bake for 10 – 15 minutes. Turn the bread over half way though to toast the other side.
    2. Preheat oven to 350 deg F and butter a 9×13 baking dish – 3 quart. Spread the bread into the pan and sprinkle on the chocolate chunks and walnuts.
    3. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla and pour evenly over the bread. Press down on the bread to aid in absorbing the moisture.
    4. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If the edges start to brown, cover with foil for the last 10 minutes.
    5. Warm the Kahlua sauce. If you made your sauce a day before, use a double boiler to reheat the sauce without cooking it. If the sauce is too thick, add one tablespoon of milk at a time and stir until thinner.
    6. Cool for 20 minutes, then serve with warm Kahlua Sauce.
