  • 2   cups 
    firm-textured whole-grain bread cubes (about 3 ounces)
  • 3   tablespoons 
    snipped dried tart red cherries
  • 1   tablespoon 
    toasted wheat germ
  • 2/3  cup 
    fat-free milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat four 6-ounce individual souffle dishes or custard cups with nonstick cooking spray. Divide bread cubes, cherries, and wheat germ among the dishes.
In a small saucepan, combine milk and chocolate. Cook and stir over low heat until the chocolate melts; remove from heat. If necessary, beat smooth with a wire whisk.
In a small bowl, gradually stir chocolate mixture into egg product. Stir in orange peel and vanilla. Pour mixture over bread cubes in the dishes. Press lightly with back of spoon to moisten bread.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the tops appear firm and a knife inserted near the centers comes out clean.
