Nutella and Toffee Bread Pudding

With a layer of creamy and rich Nutella sprinkled with crunchy toffee, encapsulated between two luscious cushions of bread pudding, this treat will have you wishing you could it all in one sitting!











  • 1 ½ pound of brioche bread (diced into cubes)
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 6 whole eggs
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste (or 1 T of vanilla extract)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup of crushed toffee pieces
  • 13 ounces of Nutella


  1. Preheat your oven to 275 F and spray or butter your casserole dish.
  2. Dice your brioche bread into cubes (no larger than 1-inch by 1-inch) and put them into a large, heat-proof bowl.
  3. Add the heavy cream, the brown sugar, the vanilla bean paste and the salt to a pot and stir to dissolve the sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture starts to simmer slightly. Turn off the heat.
  4. While the cream mixture is coming to a simmer, crack your eggs into a large heat-proof bowl and whisk them thoroughly.
  5. Once the cream mixture has simmered and the heat has been turned off, whisk in the hot cream mixture into the whisked eggs, little by little, tempering the egg, until it becomes one smooth mixture.
  6. Immediately pour the cream and egg mixture over your cut bread from earlier and gently mix with a rubber spatula to evenly distribute the custard amongst the diced bread. Allow the bread to soak for 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes to ensure all the pieces of bread absorb the custard. The mixture should look slightly soupy at this point.
  7. Once all of the bread has absorbed the custard base and you can no longer see any dry pieces of bread, pour half of the bread into your greased casserole dish from earlier and gently tap on the counter to ensure there are no pockets of air.
  8. After you have about half of the casserole dish filled, spread the Nutella across the top of the bread pudding as though you were spreading it on toast.
  9. Once all of the Nutella is spread, sprinkle the toffee pieces directly on top of it.
  10. Once the toffee has been sprinkled on, layer the remaining bread pudding onto the layer of the Nutella and toffee so that that they are sandwiched between two layers of bread pudding.
  11. Gently tap the casserole dish down on the counter to remove any air pockets and then transfer to the oven and bake at 275 F for 50-60 minutes or until the bread pudding has inflated slightly in the center and it no longer giggles.
  12. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.
