Riley's Nutella Bread Pudding

For the dessert portion of the 5th grade summer homework cooking-mission, Riley selected a bread pudding that he saw on the cooking channel. We don't have a television. Well, we have a physical television, but it doesn't receive any stations; we use it to watch DVDs and documentaries on netflix. It never occured to me that my kids watch cooking shows at the Nonni's house. That is until I received an email from my mom that read: "Good morning - we were watching the cooking channel and Riley said he would like to make this bread pudding.  It's a bread pudding made in a slow cooker by the America's Test Kitchen folks.  If you need the cooker let me know.  It sounds yummy."

I didn't have challah, so we used a speedy yeast bread. And I also don't have a slow cooker, so I used a stoneware bowl.

1 loaf bread, cut into 1" cubes
1/2 C chipped dark chocolate
9 egg yolks
1 C Nutella spread
2 C heavy cream
1 C milk
3/4 C + 2 T organic granulated sugar
4 T pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter the baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cream, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, and milk. Stir in the Nutella, then blend in the bread cubes until moistened. Add in the chocolate pieces.

Press the mixture into the buttered baking stone. Cover with foil. Bake for 60 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with 2 T granulated sugar. Bake for another 30-45 minutes or until the mixture is firm and golden.

Serve with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream.


  1. Copied the recipe! This sounds amazing! :)

  2. Oh, this sounds SO tasty - I'm a total Nutella-nut, so I know I'd probably devour way too much. Fantastic job, Riley!

  3. Mmmm, good stuff! I am a huge bread pudding fan to begin with but toss in Nutella and whip cream, swoon. Thank you for sharing this with BYOB.

  4. HI I am dropping by via BYOB, this looks totally amazing and decadent, would love love love to have some.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
