Bread pudding

Hi guys!

Long time, no blog.

It has been a while since my last post, I’ve been moving around, things have been hectic BUT I finally managed to bake today. The weather has been beautiful for the past couple of days and today was the perfect day to bake some warm bread pudding. I know most families have their own bread pudding recipe, but go on, try something slightly different this year. Okay? Cool. 🙂

I used french brioche in this recipe but you can use pretty much any type of bread. You can even use croissant if you like and you’re not a big fan of pecans, you could use nuts of your choice and even add raisins for that extra sweetness.

Serves: 3 (240ml ramekin each)

Ingredients

  • 6 slices of french brioche (or bread of choice)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden brown sugar
  • 2 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tblsp chocolate chips (1 tblsp in each ramekin)
  • 9 pecan halves, chopped (3 pecans in each ramekin)
  • For the sauce
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup milk

Instructions

  1. Cut the bread in small cubes and place in ramekins
  2. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and pecans on the bread
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk all the ingredients until most of the sugar is dissolved
  4. Pour this mixture over the bread and let it sit for 10-15 minutes
  5. Preheat oven to 180C or 350F
  6. Place the ramekins in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes

    For the sauce

  7. In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk the sugar and butter until you can’t feel the sugar granules
  8. Add the egg and vanilla and stir continuously
  9. Next, add the milk and stir for a minute
  10. Turn off the heat and pour the sauce on the baked bread pudding.
