Sorry, Food.com but this recipe is not too user-friendly. I have never made bread pudding, so that may have been part of my problem, but the recipe leaves out some crucial info. I think of brioche and challah as large diameter breads. So, since I was using bastone (about a 3 inch wide oval) I had to figure out how to compensate for the size differences. Then, the recipe did not indicate the thickness of the slices, so I guessed at a 1/2"-3/4" or so. I was also trying to make a 1/2 recipe, so I had no guidance as to how deep the bread should be in the pan or how high the egg mixture should be - should it cover the pieces, just come half-way up, or be totally absorbed by the pieces? Well, I'm still not sure. What I have just taken out of the oven is pretty dry on the top, very moist on the bottom and extremely sweet. I'm going to try it with vanilla ice cream and see if that helps.
Anything with nutella is awesome and this is no exception. I revised the recipe a bit and mixed the nutella in with the cream mixture instead of making sandwiches. I also used a method similar to the Good Eats bread pudding (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/spiced-bread-pudding-recipe/index.html) using the French boule bread. This turned out really amazing!
Yummy! This was really good and easy to make. I used a fresh brioche loaf and slightly toasted the slices to ease spreading the nutella on top. Used 200ml double cream and 37ml semi-skimmed milk. Next time I will increase the liquid amount slightly. Made my pudding in glasses rather than in a dish; I had enough for 3 glasses. I think a nice twist on this would be to add banana or strawberry slices. I used half the recipe with 2 eggs as suggested in another review
This was so so so so goood!!! I was afraid that it wouldn't turn out good, but i was wrong. Though it was a bit dry cz my brioche bread was too thick, so next time i will be using more nutella. Other then that, it pleased a very picky crowd today :) Thank you Kel !
We have never had bread pudding before and boy did I find a winner! Only two of us here, and only made half the recipe using two eggs turned out wonderful. Half the recipe made three generous servings. At first there was a problem now its solved..We arm wrestle for the third serving!! Thanks KelBel. This is a new family favorite.
I made this using homemade white bread, my DH loves Nutella so he really enjoyed this, thanks Kel!...Kitten:)
YUMMY!! YUMMY!! YUMMY!! This was out of this world!! I love the Nutella in this! AWESOME! Thank you for sharing it!!
