Nutella & Strawberry Jam Bread Pudding

Today is the day after Christmas, last day of our 3 day long weekend and I woke up really late this morning. If it was like any other weekend I would have skipped breakfast and went straight to lunch, but as I said it is the last day of our 3 day looong weekend and I wanted to make something special for breakfast.

I had this bread pudding in my mind, but I wanted to make it without the croissants and make it (very very) little healthy. I had whole grain white bread on hand and I used this recipe with nutella and strawberry jam to make the bread pudding. 


Ingredients:
Whole grain white bread - 6 slices (use any other bread that is thick)
Nutella - ¼cup
Strawberry Jam - ¼cup (or use any of  your favorite jam)
Eggs - 2 large
Sugar - ¼cup
Milk - 1 cup (I used whole milk, but 2% would work perfect)
Heavy Cream - ½cup
Vanilla extract - ½tsp

 
Method:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Keep a 8"x8" baking pan ready.
  • Spread nutella on 3 bread slices and jam on the remaining 3 slices. Place the bread with nutella on jam smeared one and press lightly. Repeat with the remaining pieces.
  • Slice each sandwich into 4 triangles and arrange them in the baking pan with the pointy sides facing up.
  • In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, vanilla and cream. Whisk until well combined. 
  • Pour the egg custard evenly over the bread. Set aside to soak for 10 minutes.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the custard is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or cocoa powder for a festive finish.
