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.

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

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
