Nutella Brioche Pudding

Nutella Brioche Pudding, bread and butter pudding, comfort food, dessert, pud, British, stale bread, custard, chocolate

Our local supermarket has opened up a new bakery which is not doing that well and I have heard many complaints from customers about it. It just isn’t one thing or the other so at the end of the day there are baskets and baskets of reduced baked goods. Recently I decided that their brioche would make an excellent base for a bread and butter pudding but as half my family don’t like dried fruit I knew I couldn’t make a conventional one. So it wasn’t much of a leap of the imagination to use Nutella which my daughter seems addicted to (well chocolate in general really – no idea where she gets that from)!

Having made this Nutella Brioche Pudding three times now it is finally good enough to be released into the big wide world. Tweaks were made each time until I got it just right, not that my family minded all the taste testing! Each time I made this pudding they absolutely loved it. So if you see some brioche going cheap, don’t worry about it being a bit stale as that is perfect for this pudding. Now every time I see brioche reduced I put a loaf in the freezer and for 50p I’ve got the base of a really frugal a delicious dessert! Even if you can’t find any reduced brioche this pud is so good I think it’s worth splashing out at full price!

  7. Christine Lockley

    Mmm yummy, can’t wait to give this recipe a whirl – thanks for sharing

    1. Camilla

      It’s so good, happy eating:-)

  8. June Etherington

    Looks nice & easy to make and would.t cost a lot for the ingredients if you haven’t already got them.

    1. Camilla

      Well I bought a largish sized jar of Nutella for £2.50 today which will last quite a long time, I’m afraid I don’t know the price of brioche but you can find it in roll form often in packs or loaf form from a variety of manufacturers (best if you can find it reduced at the end of the day)!

    I will have to try this as we all like Nutella in our house and we also like bread & butter pudding. After Xmas you will often find that supermarkets have got Panetone reduced to clear. That also makes an excellent bread & butter pudding, similar in texture to brioche.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, yes Panetonne would be great but we never seem to have a problem gobbling it all up though!

  10. wendy malone

    my teenager love nutella so i will be making this.

    1. Camilla

      Oh she’ll love this then:-)

  11. Anne Dalzell

    I’ve never made a bread and butter pudding but this looks like the perfect way to start. I got a massive jar of nutella for £4 in Lidl and had fancied baking with it.

    1. Camilla

      Excellent Anne, it was meant to be;-)

  12. Su Tyler

    I agree Brioche makes great B&B pudding. I’ve never thought of making it with chocolate spread though.. good idea…
    MMM wonder if the Biscoff spread would taste good too… I feel an experiment coming on!!

    1. Camilla

      I don’t think it would be as good but if you try it do let me know:-)

  13. Maya Russell

    I’m going to definitely look out for some brioche. It looks so good & easy to make. MMM!

    1. Camilla

      It’s soo good Maya:-)

  14. Ursula Hunt

    This is really delicious and better than regular bread pudding

    1. Camilla

      It really is Ursula:-)

  15. Jane Davies

    This looks insanely good, only problem is, I’d end up eating the whole lot to myself !

    1. Camilla

      I’m sure if there weren’t 4 of us here the same would happen LOL:-)

  16. Jane McColl

    this is pure heaven…… anything with Nutella in is a winner

    1. Camilla

  23. Rosie @Eco-Gites of Lenault

    Drool … and as I live in the land of Nutella and brioche it would seem rude not to make this!

  30. Ursula Hunt

    This is really gorgeous

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Ursula, it’s soo good:-)

  31. Maddy

    Love chocolate and this seems a good alternative to fruity puds

  32. Deena Kakaya

    Camilla that looks gorgeous! I am not normally overly keen on brioche, but I need that! x

  33. Sally - My Custard Pie

    Any form of bread and butter pudding has my name on it. This is a lovely version.

  34. Irene Wright

    I like your style – more to the point, I love your recipe for ‘left over’ brioche.
    Never know what to do with the extra because when there are just two of us, a whole loaf is a bit much sometimes. Now I have the answer, a delicious pudding will be made. Thank you for this recipe.

  35. Maddy

    Yum – just yum!

  36. Ursula Hunt

    I love cooking with Nutella, it gives a great flavour

  37. Bintu @ Recipes From A Pantry

    I saw this on instagram and just had to come and drool. Yummy…

  38. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

    YUM. Bread and butter pudding is always amazing but brioche and chocolate spread?! Even better!

  39. Anne Dalzell

    Now this is my kind of cake – not too difficult to make and utterly delicious to eat. I agree with your daughter, Nutella is fabulous!

  40. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy

    What a sweet and indulgent dessert. I have to try and stop myself from buying nutella as once it is open, that is it! lol

  41. Katie Bryson

    This looks like just the sort of pudding my two boys would go wild for Camilla – we seem to get through jars of nutella at an alarming rate!!!!! Bookmarking this for the weekend 🙂

  42. Heidi Roberts

    This looks superb – will be on the look out for brioche now!

  43. Kavey

    It’s a shame the new bakery isn’t giving the local population what they want. I wonder if those complaining have passed their varied feedback back to the bakery or not?

    Love brioche in bread and butter puddings and nutella/ chocolate variations are always a treat.

  44. Jan @GlugofOil

    I might have to make this (I don’t do desserts) but Paul would love this!

  45. Paul Wilson
