Cut a loaf of plain, day- or two-day-old brioche into rough cubes, then bake bathed in creamy custard with a scattering of summer's last berries. The recipe comes from Hewn bakery in Evanston, Illinois.


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups 1-inch cubes Classic Brioche Loaf* (about half of a loaf), dried**
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, thawed and quartered
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick cooking spray or butter
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and vanilla. Add brioche cubes and toss to coat. Let sit until mixture becomes slightly soggy, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss blueberries and strawberries with sugar and salt. Gently fold fruit into bread mixture with a rubber spatula.
  2. Transfer mixture to a greased 2-quart baking dish (or divide among 12 greased 21/2-inch muffin cups). Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and puffed and a knife comes out clean, 50 minutes for a large pudding or 26 minutes for individuals, rotating once halfway through baking. Let cool 10 minutes. If desired, dust with powdered sugar.


  • *Brioche You can make this recipe with brioche from a bakery or specialty store such as Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, or make your own. Find bakery-owner Ellen King's recipe for Classic Brioche Loaf on


  • **Drying Bread Spread brioche cubes evenly on a baking sheet; cover loosely with a kitchen towel and let stand overnight. Or, if you are in a rush, bake the cubes at 300 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes in oven, stirring once.
