Bread and Butter Pudding anyone? Even if you're not a fan (I have one of those in our house) you might just appreciate this one. Made with chocolate chip brioches, from Aldi, rather than bread and butter. No butter, no dried fruit, just the brioche all sliced up, laid in a baking dish in layers, and covered with a custard of:
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk
cinnamon to taste (about half a tsp)
Whisk the first three ingredients together and then whisk in the milk and cinnamon. Pour half over the brioche and sit for 10 minutes. Then pour in the rest and bake for 50 minutes in a water bath in an oven set on 150C.
So, so, so yum. Not too unhealthy as far as desserts go. Every time one of the kids comes to Aldi with me we seem to come home with a packet of these little brioche buns along with the promise of dessert.
