Brioche Chocolate Chip Pudding

Everyday, I always try to look for something to look forward to. I do that to be inspired and keep the smile in my face despite of the unpleasant stuff at work, life and in between. And one of things I look forward to everyday is Fiesta Friday, and I mean that from the bottom and top of my fats. 😀

I missed last week’s FF, but I am here now and I am ready party with you and to co-host Fiesta Friday #114. So now, it’s time to join the FF community and share your travel experiences, stories, recipes & DIY. Link up to Fiesta Friday #114 and please do not forget to link back your posts to Angie, our ever-amazing host, and to The Not So Creative Cook so we’ll know that you have arrived.

I am going to answer your breakfast/brunch/snack cravings this week as I am sharing a recipe of bread pudding which uses brioche. The bread was given to me by a lovely friend and intentionally reserved some for bread pudding. And  if you know me well, you know that Linda @ La Petite Panière is my Brioche Queen. This post is dedicated to her. ❤

The taste of brioche alone is amazing, but I want to try taking them to a higher level due to the curiosity whenever I see bread pudding recipes saying that brioche is one of the best breads to use when making bread pudding. So when I was given a large braided brioche, I did not let the opportunity pass.

The bread pudding came out really good. The brioche soaked up the custard very nicely and the top had a very lovely texture. The chocolate chips also added a wonderful flavor with every bite. This is perfect for breakfast, brunch or snack. Another good thing is – this can be eaten either warm or cold.

Brioche Chocolate Chip Pudding


  • 5-6 thick slices of brioche (preferably 1-2 days old)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup nuts (can be assorted), toasted and chopped (optional, but adds a lovely texture)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a small baking dish, 8 x 8 or 9 x 5 would work.
  2. Breakdown the brioche slices into thick chunks.
  3. Add half the brioche chunks to your baking dish. (This will serve as a first layer.) Add half of the chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
  4. Add the remaining half the brioche chunks, chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. In a bowl, mix eggs, cream, vanilla extract and salt.
  6. Pour the custard over the brioche chunks then gently push down the bread so the custard starts to absorb.
  7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes then remove the foil and continue to bake uncovered for about 10 minutes until the bread pudding is golden brown. The bread will rise slightly and the liquid is absorbed by the time the pudding is done.
  8. Serve warm or cold. Sprinkle powdered sugar just before serving.

Notes: This can be served with ice cream on top or whipped cream.

I hope you try this recipe and let me know. 🙂

    1. Hello, Helen. Sorry to be just responding. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a good time with your lovely family. 🙂

  1. Bread and butter pudding is one of my hubby’s favourite puddings. This looks delicious with the brioche I can just imagine how good it tastes! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x

    1. Oh, I really kept some of the slices for this pudding. It was difficult, but I had to, especially when I don’t make it at home. 😀

  2. Wonderful! I don’t typically eat any kind of bread pudding – savory or sweet – unless it’s made with really good bread like brioche!!! And this looks fabulous!

  3. Awesome, Jhuls! Thanks so much for single co-hosting this FF! You rock! I hope you aren’t too lonely, but you are surrounded by very happy and well-fed bloggers! 😀

  4. I almost never eat desserts but I can never resist a good bread and butter pudding! The chocolate makes it look even more amazing 🙂

  5. What a wonderful treat you’ve got for all of us for this Friday’s Fiesta Jhuls. It looks mouth-wateringly decadent and oh so sinful 🙂 Bring it on!

  6. Forget breakfast, I’m eating this for dinner! It looks so yummy, Jhuls! You’re tempting me with so many yummy things lately, can’t wait to try them all (which is not good because I’m starting my diet again in Monday!).

    And happy FF, Jhuls! Thanks for hosting us all!

    1. This is good anytime of the day, so this would be great for dinner, too. 😀 I hope the diet is doing great, Michelle. Have a lovely day!

  7. Oh my Jhuls – does this ever look good! I don’t use brioche very often but you have convinced me otherwise. Of course the addition of chocolate makes your pudding special. Thanks for co-hosting solo this week 🙂 Happy FF!

    1. Co-hosting alone can be quite lonely, but I am happy that you are all here to help me. 🙂 Thanks a lot for stopping by, Aunt Juju. x

  8. It’s been so many years since I’ve had bread pudding, I forget how much I actually like it. Your post reminded me of that, so thanks Jhuls. Happy FF, thanks for co-hosting 😉

  9. Hi Jhuls! This gives me the perfect reason to buy that brioche I have been eyeballing at the grocery store, although it may put my husband into a food coma. I’m gonna pin this recipe for later consumption! Yummmmm!

  10. You have me drooling over this post, Jhuls! So much for my non-existent diet 😉 Absolutely stunning, I can taste it from here.
    Thank you so much for co-hosting this week’s FF, it’s a lot of pressure reading though all those posts on your own, I cannot thank you enough for your enthusiasm and determination!
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Ginger x

    1. It’s fun to read everyone’s posts, Ginger. I am learning a lot from you and from others. Thank you so much for stopping by and I am glad you liked this pudding. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend, too. x

  11. We eat brioche for breakfast almost daily so there are always leftovers and this is one of my favourite things to do with leftover brioche. Yum!

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
