The Showstopper Dessert Of The Holiday Season

Every year, there is always one hero recipe that leaves your guests craving for more. This holiday, whip up this rich and delicious brioche pudding that features a soft and buttery sweet loaf made in France that is hand-braided before baking for European-style flavour and flair.

“Toasting the brioche in the oven is a key step to the recipe. It helps to dry out the bread, which makes it even better at soaking up the custard for a moist, cake-like texture,” shares Tom Filippou, executive chef for President’s Choice Cooking School. “To make this more indulgent, serve it with vanilla bean ice cream or freshly whipped cream and garnish with a sprinkling of dark chocolate shavings.”

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf PC brioche loaf, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups homogenized milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream, 35%
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tbsp orange zest, grated
  • 1/4 cup orange juice, fresh
  • 1 tbsp orange-flavoured liqueur
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spread brioche in single layer on parchment paper-lined large baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, until golden; about 10 minutes.
