Tres Leches Bread Pudding

If you love tres leches and bread pudding, this recipe is for you! It combines the flavors of a tres leches with a bread pudding! Great for a get together!

The one thing we love about making a bread pudding, is the ability to make it ahead, especially if you are entertaining. Hosting doesn’t have to be stressful when you are able to find make-ahead menu items

What is Tres Leches

Tres Leches is a popular authentic Mexican dessert. It is a sponge-like cake soaked with “three milks,” which consists of condensed milk, heavy cream, and evaporated milk. It is divine.

How is this recipe a Tres Leches

Of course, this is not your traditional tres leches recipe. We took the idea of a tres leches and combined it with a bread pudding. A nice brioche bread that is soaked with evaporated milk, condensed milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Bake it and top it with chocolate chips and a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk.

How to make this recipe

Custard. This custard is a simple combination of egg yolks, milk, half the condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar and vanilla. Beat all these ingredients together.

Brioche. Cut up a loaf of brioche into bite size pieces, and pour the custard over.

Buttered baking dish. Pour in a buttered baking dish, approx. 12×8.

Make-ahead. This recipe is best put together 6-8 hours before serving. The longer it sits the more the brioche absorbs the custard.

Bake. Top with chocolate chips and bake at 375 degrees F. for 50-60 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Topping. Once the bread pudding is done, top with the condensed milk. We add a whole can onto the topping, but feel free to keep it on the side and drizzle as little or as much as you like.
