Description

Chocolate Chip Brioche Bread Pudding is a rich and decadent dessert that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Its custard-like texture is punctuated by gobs of melted chocolate. It can be enjoyed warmed up by itself or accompanied with Easy 2-Ingredient Whipped Cream and fresh berries or a scoop of ice cream. This easy bread pudding recipe is a perfect use for stale bread and can be made in under 90 minutes.


Scale

Ingredients

2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs, beaten
7-8 slices of brioche, cut into 1” cubes
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons powdered sugar for dusting


Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cubed bread on a baking pan and toast the bread for 10-15 min, or just until golden. Turn the cubes halfway through. Set aside to cool.

In a saucepan on low heat, warm up milk, butter, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Once the butter is just melted, remove from heat to cool. Once the mixture cools, add eggs and whisk.

Fill a 9-inch pie dish with toasted bread and toss with chocolate chips. Gently shake the pie dish so the bread settles. Pour the egg and milk mixture over bread and let the bread soak up the custard mixture for about 20 minutes.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until custard is cooked, but slightly wobbly and the bread is slightly brown. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm and top with berries, ice cream, or whipped cream.


Notes

If you don’t have brioche, you can substitute with a baguette or challah. You can also serve the Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding with Easy 2-Ingredient Whipped Cream.
