Apple and Blackberry Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding



I received another tasty Degustabox at the end of August and have been enjoying it's contents in the ensuing weeks.  You can see evidence of that in the lovely Apple and Blackberry Bread and Butter Pudding I baked with the package of Brioche Pasquier I received in the box.



 I do enjoy these boxes when they arrive each month.   It's like getting a Christmas package because you never know what is going to be in it until it arrives.  It's quite exciting really! . .   


The Pasquier family began baking brioche in 1936 in a small bakery in the West of France.   Based on a traditional recipe, their pain au lait are made using the finest ingredients to make a light, airy, moist brioche roll you can enjoy with your favourite filling.  RRP £1.59 for 8 pains au lait.

It was the Brioche Pasquier Pains au Lait which I used to create this delicious Apple and Blackberry Bread and Butter Pudding.

It's rich and fruity . . .

Stogged to the hilt with fresh autumn cooking apple and hedgerow blackberries.  With a rich and indulgent custard, there is not much not to like about this dessert!  


Served warm with lashings of more cream drizzled over top, it went down a real treat!  Simple, easy and delicious!

Serves 4 to 6
Quite simply delicious.   All that is good about autumn in a baking dish.

6 brioche buns
softened butter
1 large cooking apple, peeled and grated
1 large handful of fresh blackberries
140ml of whole milk (2/3 cup)
30ml of double cream (3 TBS)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 TBS sugar
the zest of 1/2 lemon
2 large free range eggs, beaten
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger 


Apple and Blackberry Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding 


Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4.  Butter a baking dish large enough to hold the brioche buns in it side by side.


Cut each bun in half.  Butter each half on the cut side.  Lay the bottom halves in the baking dish.  Sprinkle the grated apple over top.  Scatter with the blackberries.   Mix together the sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon and ginger.  Sprinkle this mixture over top of the fruit.  Cover with the top buns.  Beat together the milk, eggs, cream and vanilla.  Pour this over top of the brioche buns, pressing them down into the mixture a bit.   Let stand for about 15 minutes.
Bake in the heated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until puffed and golden.    Serve hot with or without cream.

Many thanks to Degustabox for sending me this box. It was truly lovely, with lots to enjoy!

  3. I usually try to use all that they send me in some way if possible Monique. Of course I can't always use it all, but then my friends are happy recipients of my generosity!
