This easy blueberry bread pudding recipe is made with fresh berries, brioche, and a handful of other ingredients. It’s a cozy weekend breakfast idea or a decadent dessert, especially if you serve it with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream!

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of brioche or challah bread, cut into 12-inch cubes
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, stems removed
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions

Prep your tools. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9×13 glass pan with the butter. Set aside.

Cut the brioche into cubes about 1-2 inches. I usually will cut 1 slice of the bread into 6 pieces. Add the cubes to the prepared 9×13 baking dish.

Add the blueberries to the pan with the bread cubes. Use your hands to mix things together.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs together. Add the milk, sugar, vanilla, ground cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk together well.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes. With a fork, move the bread pieces around a bit so that every piece of the bread has a chance to soak up some of the custard. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Bake uncovered for 50-60 minutes, until the bread pudding is golden and has puffed up a bit. The pudding is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean (no wet custard on it). Allow the pudding to cool for 10 minutes.

With a serrated knife, cut the pudding into squares. Remove each square with a spatula and serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.

Notes

Storage: Let the bread pudding cool to room temperature, then cover it tightly with saran wrap in the baking pan. Or you can cut it into slices and transfer them into an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. I don’t recommend freezing bread pudding because it will affect the texture too much.
