Chocolate Kahlua Bread Pudding with Pecans and Chocolate Chips

Jump to recipe

Reward yourself with breakfast that tastes like dessert! Slightly boozy too. What more can we ask for? Chocolate kahlua bread pudding is bursting with chocolate flavour and a truly special morning treat. 

Chocolate Kahlua Bread Pudding

Welcome to September everyone! Or as we Filipinos like to call it, the start of Christmas season lol.

Up here though, the end of the Labour Day weekend signals the unofficial end of summer as kids go back to school and sweaters start to make their appearance. Seriously, it was so chilly last week it actually already felt like fall.

While I am hoping for an Indian summer (of course I am), I have to admit I do love fall flavours. Cozy, comfy food that feels like a warm hug on a crisp fall day. Let’s start with this delightful chocolate kahlua bread pudding. It has chocolate, cardamom, cinnamon and pecans. Plus a little booze for kicks. What’s not to love?

Kind of bread to use

Chocolate Kahlua Bread Pudding

In my other favourite bread pudding recipe (surprise, surprise, it’s lemon and has booze in it too: Croissant Bread Pudding with Lemon Butter and Blueberries), I used butter croissant as base.

In this chocolate bread pudding though, I used the sturdier and crustier ciabatta because that was what we had leftovers of.

Bread pudding is a great way to use up days old bread! So feel free to use whatever you have on hand. Some breads are fluffier than others and that may affect the texture of your pudding but it will taste just as delicious.

Double chocolate

I mean, it’s hard to go wrong with chocolate, right?! And in this recipe you get double the chocolate fun – it has cocoa in the custard and chocolate chips mixed in with the bread.

Plus, it has coffee liqueur! Which makes it an adult breakfast. We deserve it once in a while, yes? While the kids have their chocolate pancakes?

This chocolate kahlua bread pudding is what lazy weekend mornings are made of. Go for it and top it with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, more chocolate chips and pecans. What you’ll have is breakfast that’s rich, decadent and tastes just like dessert.

Make-ahead breakfast

It keeps incredibly well too. So make it this weekend and keep leftovers covered in the fridge. Next morning, just grab a slice, microwave, enjoy and be on your way!

Happy baking!
