Brownie Bread Pudding

Brownie Bread Pudding

I made these brownies but I accidentally over baked them and they turned out being a little too cakey for my liking. Rather than throwing them away I decided to make Brownie bread pudding!

Brownie Bread Pudding

Pretty much any stale bread, cake or brownies can be turned into bread pudding. Leave the brownies out overnight so they turn slightly stale. This will allow the cream mixture to really soak in and make them nice and spongy once baked.

Ingredients

1 batch of brownies, left out overnight to get stale

5 eggs

2/3 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups half and half (I mixed some single cream and milk)

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

ice cream, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F/190 C. Grease a 7 x 11 inch baking sheet (I used small ramekins). Spread the crumbled brownies over the bottom. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar until blended. Mix in the half and half. Pour over the brownies and cover with foil. Let stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Bake for 1 hour (I left my ramekins uncovered) until the custard is set. Remove from the oven and let sit for 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream and drizzled chocolate.

    This was delicious! I used 20 Costco brownie bites. And… since I did not read the recipe thoroughly, I ended up on a time crunch. I did not let it rest before baking. I baked in my convection oven on 400 for 15 minutes and 375 for 15 minutes, and it was perfect! Thank you for this recipe!

  8. I tried making these and the setting of the custard didn’t quite turn out right. I think I may have also burned them a bit but I think I will trying this again. Somebody mentioned using Costco brownie bites which I might copy instead of what I used this time, although, I cannot resist eating the whole tub of those usually.
