Chocolate bread pudding!

This recipe is a modified version of Delia's, which is absolutely the best winter dessert

In a bowl pour 400ml of double cream, 200g of dark chocolate, 1/3 cup sugar, 3 tbs rum, and 1 tsp vanilla bean paste.

Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, until it all is melted and combined.

Take off the heat and let cool for five minutes.

Beat 3 eggs, and mix in.

Slice up and remove the crusts from 10 slices of bread.

Pour 1/3 of the chocolate mixture, add a layer of bread, repeat, and top with the rest of the chocolate.

Allow to rest in the fridge for 24 hours.

Bake in a pre - heated 180/350 oven for 35 minutes.

Serve with whipped cream.
