Bread pudding with lemon curd and blueberries – Donna Hay #10

lemoncurd en blauwe bessen broodpudding

Lemon curd and blueberries bread pudding

You might think that I picked the Donna Hay issue I am cooking from for the pure reason that it has a lot of bread pudding in it… It would have been an excellent reason but sadly it isn’t why I picked it… Well maybe until I tasted the first one… Insanely good! But I am a breadpudding fan so maybe that doesn’t count.

As usual I had made way too much and brought a part over to the neighbours. I received the empty bowl back with the note that the two neighbourly girls didn’t like it, but their mother liked it all the more. Can it be the lemon curd? It is quite soury/sweet ofcourse but that is the exact flavor I love.

The recipe states that it needs to be made with brioche and that is – by itself – already quite sweet. Maybe it is better to make it with regular bread, because the lemoncurd adds more sugar to it. Whatever bread you will use it’s gonna be delicious anyway.


So I can chat about long or short… I just say; go and make it! (and there are more variations to come soon!)

  1. Heavenly! This combination is simply perfect. A great spring/summer dessert.



  2. 5 stars
    This dessert was made in heaven and should be delivered post haste. 🙂 I love blueberries and lemons.

  3. I love lemon, and lemon and blueberries are such a terrific combo, aren’t they? This looks super. Really like the top picture, BTW. Specifically, great composition, and wonderful angle. Good stuff — thanks.

  4. I love recipes which connect several favourites of mine! In this case you already had me at breadpudding, but the addition of lemon curd and blueberries is what takes this over the top just by reading the instructions! I’ve still got some lemon curd sitting in the fridge, so as soon as I get my hands on some fresh blueberries this dessert is what will be turned into the oven. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Oh my, this bread pudding looks divine! I love the sounds of the lemon and blueberries. Comforting but with a bit tartness. Pinning!

  6. So fresh and lovely! This is the kind of dessert that seems deceptively light, but is really incredibly decadent, through and though. 😉

  7. Simone – It’s so funny. I was trying to find the recipe for this dish from Donna Hay and your post came up in the search. Beautiful … as always.
