Author Notes: This bread pudding is a combination of my standard (easy) bread pudding recipe and my family's trifle recipe, which involves pound cake and raspberry jam. You can make it with another kind of bread, but nothing beats brioche for flavor and texture in bread pudding. I also use homemadeTahitian vanilla extract, because I love the floral flavor with the raspberry jam.Savour

Serves 6

Bread Pudding

  • 6 ounces brioche
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon sherry
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice the brioche into rough slices.
  3. Spread each slice of brioche with jam, layering the brioche as you go into a 2 quart souffle dish. Sprinkle a little of the sherry over each layer of the brioche.
  4. Mix the milk, cream, eggs, sugar and vanilla, and beat until the egg is thoroughly incorporated.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the brioche. Let sit for about 5 minutes so the custard can soak in.
  6. Bake the bread pudding at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The pudding should be slightly wobbly in the middle.

Meringue

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place a shiny cookie sheet, shiny side down, on the top rack of the oven on the highest setting, and the other rack on the lowest setting.
  2. Beat egg whites and salt until fluffy. Slowly add sugar, and beat until the mixture is glossy and stiff peaks form.
  3. Spread meringue over the top of the bread pudding. Use the spoon to make peaks and whorls.
  4. Place pudding on lowest rack of the oven, beneath the cookie sheet. The shininess will reflect heat onto the top of the meringue, making it brown faster.
  5. Bake the pudding for about 8 minutes, or until the meringue is golden brown. Serve warm.

That is a good looking meringue. The raspberry and brioche is just such a good combo. I will be making this.
