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.

Author: Gemma Stafford Servings: 8 Ingredients 1 recipe of Brownies (my Best Ever Brownies , boxed Brownies or your fav Brownie recipe)For the Custard:6 eggs, at room temperature1 1/3 cups (10 1/2 floz/300ml) whole milk2/3 cup (5floz/142ml) cream1/4 cup (1 1/2oz/43g) brown sugar1/2 teaspoon salt2 teaspoons vanilla extract1/2 teaspoon almond extract, optional 1 cup (4oz/115g) semi-sweet chocolate coarsely chopped Instructions Generously butter a casserole dish, roughly 8x8 inches. Set aside.Cut the brownies into small cubes, less than 1-inch squares. In a large bowl add the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, almond extracts, salt, and sugar. Whisk until everything is well combined.Add the chopped brownies and chopped chocolate into the custard, pushing down gently to coat.

When ready to bake pour the brownie pudding mix into your buttered dish.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)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. Play Recipe Notes This recipe will also work with my best ever brownie recipe or any brownie recipe you have.
