1.Cut bread diagonally into 1cm slices, then halve slices. Use 40g butter to grease a 10-12 cup gratin or baking dish. Arrange bread in dish so it is slightly overlapping.
2.Combine cream, milk, sugar and salt in a pan and stir over moderate heat until sugar has dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate and stand until chocolate has softened, about 3 minutes. Stir until smooth.
3.Break eggs into a large bowl and beat lightly. Slowly add chocolate mixture, whisking until well combined, then stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over bread and stand 1 hour, pressing bread down from time to time.
4.Preheat oven to 160°C (140°C fan). Dot 30g butter onto the top of pudding. Place dish in a larger baking pan with hot water coming halfway up sides of dish. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until custard has set but is still wobbly in the middle. Serve warm with cream.
