Chocolate Bread Pudding

We took a classic bread pudding and put a lighter spin on it by sweetening it with just a little honey, using brown seeded bread and then we added some dark chocolate chunks. Because, why not!

  • 8 slice brown bread
  • 300 ml Arla Lactofree skimmed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 50 g vegan dark chocolate
  • 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Tear the bread and put it in to a baking dish.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, honey, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Pour the milk mixture over the bread and make sure everything is covered. Put in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Take out of the fridge and sprinkle the chocolate chunks on top. 
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 40 minutes.



  • Stale bread is best to use, so this is a great recipe to reduce food waste.
  • You can add so many different things to this dessert. Nuts and dried fruit work well.
  • Want a flavoured bread pudding? Swap the vanilla extract for an orange or mint extract.
  • Leftovers will keep in the fridge for about 3 days.
