What you'll need:
3 cups heavy whipping cream
10 ounces white chocolate
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
8 egg yolks
1 loaf French bread, torn into pieces and dried in the oven
For the sauce:
8 ounces white chocolate
3 ounces of heavy cream
Heat the cream in a double boiler and add the white chocolate; when the chocolate is melted, remove from heat.
In a double boiler, heat the milk, sugar, eggs and egg yolks until warm (do not let it come to a boil). Blend the egg mixture into the cream and chocolate mixture.
Place the bread in a 9x13 baking pan. Pour 1/2 the mixture over the bread and let settle for a while, making sure the bread soaks up all the mixture. Top with the rest of mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 275° for 1 hr and 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Top with white chocolate sauce. Serve warm.
To make the chocolate sauce:
Gently melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. Remove from heat and mix in heavy cream. Spoon over bread pudding.
