A box of brownie mix can be so much more than brownies — especially with my Brownie Bread Pudding recipe!


Hi Bold Bakers!

How do you take something like a box of brownie mix and transform it into a decadent 5-star dessert? I’m going to show you how to make a bread and butter pudding, but using brownies instead of bread! That’s right, this is my Brownie Bread Pudding recipe!

Is There Any Bread In This Brownie Bread Pudding?

Nope! In this recipe, we replace the bread with BROWNIES! I don’t know about you when I realized you could do that all I could think was, “How have I not already done this? I am a culinary wizard!” Remember, you can use your own homemade brownies, my Best Ever Brownies, OR you can even use boxed brownies for real ease and convenience.

All you need is a small 8 x 8-inch batch.

My Bread Pudding Is Too Dry, What Happened?

If you watch the video you will see that the pudding is a lot of custard and an 8 x 8 inch batch of brownies. You might think it is too much custard, but trust me, you need all of it. The brownies will absorb it and if you bake it just right (with a jiggle in the middle) it will not be dry.

My Bread Pudding Is Too Runny, What Happened?

This is rare and unlikely to happen. To bake this pudding perfectly you want a very visible jiggle in the middle once it’s done. That will mean it is still really moist and pudding-like on the inside.

In case you are worried it’s ‘too runny’ let me just tell you that once this pudding sits and cools it will set firmer so you want to factor that in when you are taking it out of the oven.

How do I store Brownie Bread Pudding?

Once cooled, store the pudding in the fridge. Re-heat before serving with vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream.

How long does it last?

The pudding will last for up to 3 days covered in the fridge. Note that it also freezes well for the future. Always warm through before serving.

Tips and Tricks to Making Brownie Bread Pudding…

  • Feel free to use any brownie recipe including boxed brownies
  • You can use a small 8 x 8 inch batch of brownies
  • Bake it until you still have a jiggle in the middle
  • As the pudding cools it sets so factor that in when you are taking it from the oven
  • Cooking a little less will just make it fudgier
  • Make the custard up to 24 hours in advance 
  • Allow the pudding to soak for at least 30 minutes before baking

A box of brownie mix can be so much more than brownies — especially with my Brownie Bread Pudding recipe!

Servings: 8
Calories: 344 kcal
Author: Gemma Stafford
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe of Brownies (my Best Ever Brownies , boxed Brownies or your fav Brownie recipe)
For the Custard:
  • 6 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cups (10 1/2 floz/300ml) whole milk
  • 2/3 cup (5floz/142ml) cream
  • 1/4 cup (1 1/2oz/43g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, optional
  • 1 cup (4oz/115g) semi-sweet chocolate coarsely chopped
Instructions
  1. Generously butter a casserole dish, roughly 8x8 inches. Set aside.

  2. Cut the brownies into small cubes, less than 1-inch squares.

  3. In a large bowl add the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, almond extracts, salt, and sugar. Whisk until everything is well combined.

  4. Add the chopped brownies and chopped chocolate into the custard, pushing down gently to coat. Set aside at room temperature for the pudding to soak up the custard for a minimum of 30 minutes.

  5. When ready to bake pour the brownie pudding mix into your buttered dish.

  6. Bake the Brownie Bread Pudding at 350°F (180°C) for roughly 35-40 minutes. The pudding is done when it is slightly firm on top BUT there is still a jiggle in the center of the pudding, very important to have that jiggle. (I mentioned in the video 45-50 but In the end, I only did 40 minutes and it was plenty)

  7. This pudding is best served warm with whipped cream or ice cream (or both). Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat before serving.

    I love your recipes! I have a bunch of leftover super sweet brownies, can I make this brownies bread pudding recipe omitting the sugar (because my brownies are already too sweet) ? Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 29, 2019 at 1:50 am

      Hi Linda,
      YES! that is the idea, balance the sweetness out by omitting it from the custard. No waste!
      Gemma 🙂

    I made it using 18 2.5 inch chocolate chip cookies. I cannot figure out how to attach a picture.

  3. Teresa on September 24, 2019 at 10:01 am

    How many cups of brownie or leftover cookies or leftover cake equal one box of brownies?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 24, 2019 at 4:47 pm

      You will need a lot of brownies. 1 recipe is almost 1.5kg of brownies https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/best-ever-brownies/. You can always check the back of the box. In any case, you can easily halve this recipe if you don’t have enough ???? Gemma
