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!
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.
1 batch of brownies, left out overnight to get stale
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
- 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.
- 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.
