Bread Pudding is another dish that I don’t think I ever had growing up. I was always more of a french toast fan. But now that I have had bread pudding, I realized that 1) its pretty similar to french toast, and 2) its way easier to make!
And since Valentines Day is on a Friday this year, I thought this raspberry & nutella bread pudding would make the perfect dish for a Valentine’s Day Brunch! And to add a little savory to the menu, I made a couple of egg’s in the hole with a heart shape cutout (you might just have to trust me that these were initially hearts!)
Raspberry & Nutella Bread Pudding
Raspberry & Nutella Bread Pudding is the perfect treat for a Valentine's Day Brunch
- 1/2 loaf of challah
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 5 tbsp Nutella
- raspberries to serve
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a small saucepan add the milk, butter, vanilla, and sugar. Mix together until its all incorporated.
Cut a half of loaf of challah into small cubes.
Spray a small oven-safe baking dish with cooking spray.
Add the bread, frozen raspberries, and nutella into the baking dish so that the raspberries and nutella are evenly dispersed.
Once the milk mixture is cooled, add the two eggs and beat them until combined.
Pour the mixture over the bread.
Cook for 45 minutes.
Serve with fresh raspberries.
I like to share substitutions so you can use what you have rather than buy a specific ingredient just for one dish. But you will need all of the ingredient in this dish, so its probably worth buying. But still, below are some possible substitutions to help you use what you already have on hand or to meet your dietary restrictions.
- Raspberries: You can use any fruit, fresh or frozen! I try to use frozen fruit in the winter since fresh berries are not in season and will cost more.
- Dairy-free: I think you can try a milk substitute for this dish, but I haven’t tried.
- Nut-free: Skip the nutella if you need to make the recipe nut free, you could also try adding a few chocolate chips.
Heart-shaped Egg in the Hole
I didn’t create a separate recipe for this egg in a hole. But to make these take a heart shape cookie cutter to a slice of bread. Put the bread in a pan and crack an egg in the whole. Cook for 3-4 minutes on one side and then flip for another 3-4 minutes on the other. Serve with avocado!
