Pear & Chocolate Brioche Pudding Recipe

Bottom heat 150ºC
Serves: 6-8
Prep: 25 minutes
Cook: 1 hours, plus cooling


  • 75g butter
  • 30g caster sugar
  • 340g pears – peeled, cored & quartered
  • 285g brioche fingers, sliced in half lengthways
  • 55g chopped dark or milk chocolate
  • 2 tbsp clear honey, warmed

For the custard:

  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 170g caster sugar
  • 375ml whole milk
  • 125ml double cream


Preheat your Neff oven to Bottom Heat 150ºC. For the custard, mix egg yolks & caster sugar. Pour milk and cream into a pan, heat until it boils. Whisk into the egg mix.

Rinse saucepan, pour the custard back in and heat gently until it starts to thicken.

Grease a 2-litre ovenproof dish with butter (around 15g). Melt 30g of butter in a non-stick frying pan, sprinkle in sugar and heat until it starts to caramelise. Add pears and cook for 8-10 minutes.

Spread the brioche with butter and layer into the dish with the pears and half the chocolate. Strain the custard over with the remaining chocolate.

Place dish in a deep roasting tin and cover halfway up with boiling water. Place on shelf 1, bake for 30 minutes.

Cool, drizzle with the warmed honey & serve.
