  Vanilla extract 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Eggs 4

  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  All purpose flour 1 Tablespoon
  Chocolate square 1 Ounce, melted (Milk Or Dark)

Preheat the oven to 350°.
In a mixing bowl combine the milk, butter, brandy, and vanilla extract.
Beat in the sugar, eggs and nutmeg.
Add the bread cubes, submerging until thoroughly moistened.
Transfer the pudding mixture into a 3-quart buttered baking dish gently, so that the bread doesn't break up.
Bake the pudding for 30 to 45 minutes or until set.
In a small saucepan blend the sugar with the flour.
Stir in the melted chocolate and the water.
Place the pan on a burner and bring the sauce to a boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes.
Pour the sauce over individual servings of the pudding.
