In this how-to video Lisa Belt (Lovejoy’s queen bee) and her darling twin boys whip up a Brioche & Pecan Bread Pudding that’s quick, easy, and worthy of royalty. Absolutely scrumptious with a dollop of fresh whipped cream!
2 tablespoons of butter, melted, plus some to grease the pan
1 loaf of Lovejoy Bakers brioche, cubed
1 cup pecans
4 cups half-and-half
1 cup whole milk
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly grated nutmeg
Grease a large baking dish, and put the cubed brioche in it. Sprinkle with whole pecans.
Whisk together the rest of the ingredients including the half-and-half, milk, eggs, butter, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
Next, pour the mixture over the bread. Push the bread cubes down to make sure they absorb the liquid. Let the pudding sit for 1 hour or so.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and pour the melted butter over the top. Bake for 50 minutes, or until set. Serve warm from the oven with some fresh whipped cream!
