Maple Bread Pudding

Spinach Dip

Ingredients

9 eggs
1 liter 35% cream
1 cup sugar
1 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 large loaf of brioche bread (we make our brioche in house allowing us to add a touch of cocoa to half the loaves to give the bread pudding a beautiful marbled look but not to fear — your will taste just as delicious)


Cooking Instructions

1. Cut the bread into large cubes and set in a bowl.

2. Whisk the eggs together and add the cream while still whisking.

3. Slowly add the sugar, maple syrup and vanilla extract while whisking the cream and egg mixture.

4. Add the liquid to the brioche cubes and stir a few times.

5. Let the mixture soak into the bread in the fridge for at least 1 hour, better if left longer, up to overnight is fine.

6. Preheat an oven to 350⁰F.
