What You Need

Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding

  • Brioche Loaf
  • Pecan nuts
  • Salted Caramel Sauce ( see recipe here)

How to Make it

Heat the oven to 180 degrees.

Layer the Brioche loaf across the baking dish you are using, ideally 11-12 inches.

Dip the pecan nuts in the salted caramel sauce for extra crunch and then scatter them across the bread.

Dot or drizzle the brioche with the Salted Caramel Sauce (according to taste but maybe now is not the time for less is more; more is more)

Mix the eggs, vanilla and milk to make the custard and pour gently over the brioche pressing any exposed bread back into the grey mixture.

If you like a little crunch, then sprinkle brown sugar over the top.

Pop in the oven for apprize 30 minutes until the custard is set and the top is golden brown.

Serve warm (not hot) with an extra drizzle of Salted Caramel Sauce on top for Sugar heads and extra cream or ice cream for those who like to indulge.
