Ingredients for Chocolate Orange Bread Pudding:

  • 10.5 ounces of white bread
  • 3 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup of candied peel chunks
  • 2/3 cup of sultanas or golden raisins
  • 1 cup of full-fat milk
  • 1¼ cups of heavy cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • egg yolks
  • ½ cup of light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 1 tsp of orange extract
  • 5.3 ounces of dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup of chocolate chips
  • orange, sliced into half-moons
  • 1 tsp of powdered sugar

How to Make Chocolate Orange Bread Pudding:

Step 1

Grease a large baking dish with butter or nonstick cooking spray and set it aside. Rub butter over each slice of bread, then cut them into 1-inch chunks, and add them to the prepared baking dish.

Step 2

Add in the candied peel and sultanas, and set them aside. Add the milk, heavy cream, and vanilla extract to a pan, then heat the mixture until almost boiling making sure to give them a good stir, and turn off the heat.


Step 3

In a large measuring cup, add the egg yolks, brown sugar, and cornstarch, then whisk everything until well combined, and then gradually add in the hot milk mixture a little at a time while whisking consistently until well mixed. Pour the mixture back into the pan, then turn on the heat to medium, and allow it to thicken while stirring slowly.

Step 4

Turn off the heat, then add the orange extract and dark chocolate, and give them a good stir until melted. Pour in the chocolate mixture over the bread, then gently toss them together until evenly coated, and let them sit for about 30 minutes until the bread has absorbed most of the chocolate.

Step 5

While waiting for the bread, preheat your oven to 350°F, then once ready, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bread mixture, and put them in the oven. Allow them to bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges are crispy, then garnish them with orange slices and powdered sugar, and serve. Enjoy!
