3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1-3/4 cup sugar
3 cups nonfat milk
1 pound day old bread with crusts removed, torn into pieces
1 tablespoon vanilla
Two egg whites
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
Preheat oven to 375-degrees. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray and dust with cocoa powder. Combine cocoa and 3/4-cup sugar with milk in a saucepan. Cook over medium low heat until dissolved. Cool. Pour over bread and soak until bread absorbs mixture. Combine vanilla, egg and egg whites, cinnamon, remaining sugar, salt and orange peel. Place one layer of bread in loaf pan. Pour a little of the egg mixture over. Continue placing bread and egg mixture in loaf pan until pan is filled. Pour remaining egg mixture over the top and bake for
45 minutes to one hour, or until crusty on top, puffy, and set in the middle. Let cool slightly and serve warm or cold. Some liquid will settle in bottom of pan.
