Ingredients

  • Butter for greasing the baking dish (about 1 - 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (to coat the baking dish
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk whole milk or 2% milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups mixed berries strawberries, raspberries and blueberries pictured in this recipe
  • 2 tablespoons berry liquor (Chambord) - (optional) Grand Marnier can be used as well
  • 8 cups brioche bread, cubed or torn into 1 inch chunks
  • Whipped cream for serving (optional)
  • Extra Berries to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Butter an 8 x 11.5 inch (2 qt) baking dish and coat it with the 1/4 cup sugar
  • Trimming the berries: Rinse/clean the berries. Trim the strawberries and if they are large, cut them in half or quarters. You want all the berries to be somewhat similar in size in size.
  • In a medium bowl mix the berries. Pour the berry liquor over the berries and mix gently. Let the berries sit on the counter for about ten minutes. *See notes
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar and vanilla. Add the heavy cream and milk and whisk until well blended.
  • Place the bread cubes in a single layer inside the prepared baking dish (use a little more than half the amount of bread for this layer).  

  • Pour half of the custard mixture over the bread. Press lightly so the bread absorbs the custard.
  • Spoon half of the berry mixture (and their juices, if any) over the custard soaked bread.
  • Top the berries with the remaining bread cubes and pour the rest of the custard over it. Press lightly. Place the remaining berries on top.
  • Bake for about 55 minutes to 1 hour or until set in the center. The top should look a bit golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. This will help the bread pudding set a bit so it is easier to serve.
    Serve with whipped cream and garnish with extra berries (optional).
