Schar Sweet Brioche Rolls and Brioche ‘bread and butter’ Pudding

I remember these when they were by Dietary Specials and called breakfast rolls.  The first time I had them I remember thinking they were lovely and just like cakey bread.  I’m not surprised Schar rebranded them and called them Brioche.  I often have a packet in the cupboard for when I need a quick snack.  They are lovely with just jam or banana and are very satisfying.


The other day I made some Almond Macaroons, I only need the whites of two eggs for this recipe so I was left with two yolks.  I also had a couple of the Brioche rolls left that were beginning to go a bit stale so I though I would try and make a ‘bread and butter’ pudding.You will need:

  • 2 brioche sliced
  • 100ml milk
  • 4 tablespoons double cream
  • the two egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • handful of the dried cranberries
  • grated orange
  • and some ground nutmeg



  • preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas4
  • Grease a dish with butter
  • Slice the Brioche ( I didn’t butter it as I felt they were buttery enough) and layer it in the dish with the cranberries and sprinkle over the sugar.
  • Combine the milk and cream and heat in a saucepan, being careful not to allow it to boil
  • Whisk the egg yolks into the warmed milk and cream add the orange zest and then pour over the brioche
  • Finish with a sprinkling of nutmeg then pop in the oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown and set.
  • when done, remove from oven and allow to cool slightly then dish up and slather with cream and enjoy!
