Pear, Chocolate and Bread Pudding

Another bread pudding I know!  It’s this flipping gluten free bread it goes stale so quickly and I wouldn’t want to waste it now would I?!


Serves 3/4 normal people 2 greedy pigs!

A quarter of a gluten free loaf (I used Genius but you could use anything, i’m sure a nice brioche or stale baguette would be lovely too)

Half a pint of milk

2 Eggs

A teaspoon of vanilla extract

Two dessert spoons of sugar and a heaped teaspoon for dusting with

About 1 tinned pear chopped

About a third of a bar of dark chocolate


Pre heat oven to 150 degrees.

Cut the bread into cubes and put into ovenproof dish.

Sprinkle over and mix in between the chocolate, broken up into little chunks, and the pear.

Whisk up the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla extract.

Pour custard mixture over bread til almost full.

I then weighed mine down for a ten or so min with a lid to make sure all the bread cubes got a thorough soak, if you can be more patient wait longer and leave in fridge until needed.

Place pudding dish in a larger pan or dish and fill with jusy boiled water (bain marie).

Sprinkle over teaspoon of sugar to creat crunchy top.

Put in the oven for 45/60 min until just set.

Leave to cool slightly before eating, remember I burnt my tongue last time!
