Brioche Bread Pudding

February 9, 2019Sew White

My Brioche Bread Pudding is a warm super fruity treat and perfect all year. We have had it for brunch before it still remains the best pudding.

This is a super simple pudding and one that is always popular in my house. It’s always worth having a bag of frozen fruit in the freezer so you can whip it up if you come across a brioche loaf with your name on it.

My favourite part of making this recipe is spooning the hot fruit over the bread. It smells so rich and fruity. The feast for the senses is really pushed with the soft creamy brioche with it’s crisp toasted outside against the rich flavoured fruit which can be a little sour with the lemon juice but it’s worth it.

  • brioche loaf (approx 400g loaf)
  • 100 g redcurrant jelly
  • 500 g frozen summer berries (strawberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries, raspberries, redcurrants)
  • 50 ml Brandy optional if you'd prefer without alcohol
  • juice of half of 1 lemon
  • icing sugar for dusting
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Fresh raspberries


  • Slice the brioche loaf lengthways and place on a tray. Pop it under the grill on low to warm and lightly toast each side. Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn.
  • Add the redcurrant jelly, frozen berries, brandy and lemon juice in to a saucepan and place on a low heat to melt. Mix together as it cooks.
  • When the brioche is toasted place on a plate and gently spoon out the fruit over the top when it's softened and ready.
  • Wash and chop the fresh berries and pop them on top of the dessert. It's lovely to have the mix of hot and cold fruit.
  • Add a sprinkle of icing sugar and serve straight away.
