I remember my mom making this, when I was a little girl, however, I haven't got her recipe. I just like to "wing-it" and make it my way with what I have. Today, I used some fresh eggs that a friend gave us recently; they were blue eggs which I think come from Arauncana chickens.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES. ASSEMBLE PUDDING BY LAYERING BREAD, THEN POUR MIXTURE OVER AND PAT DOWN AND LET REST A FEW MINUTES TO SOAK UP THE CHOCOLATE.
