Brioche bread pudding with raisins is a delightful and indulgent dessert that combines the rich and buttery flavors of brioche bread with the sweet and chewy goodness of raisins. This classic dessert is often baked to perfection, resulting in a warm, comforting dish that is perfect for special occasions or any time you're craving a sweet treat.
Here's a basic recipe for making brioche bread pudding with raisins:
1 loaf of brioche bread, cut into small cubes
1 cup raisins
4 large eggs
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom powder
Pinch of salt
Butter for greasing the baking dish
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Grease a baking dish with butter.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
Add the brioche bread cubes to the egg mixture, making sure to coat each cube thoroughly. Allow the bread to soak in the mixture for about 10 minutes, or until it absorbs the liquid.
Gently fold in the raisins into the bread mixture.
Transfer the mixture to the baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is set. You can test for doneness by inserting a knife into the center – if it comes out clean, the bread pudding is ready.
Allow the brioche bread pudding to cool before serving.
Serve the bread pudding warm with a drizzle of caramel sauce, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar,
