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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
