How to make a Chocolate Pear Brioche Pudding
Slice the bread.
Lay a bottom with bread.
Peel and cut the pears.
Place a layer of pears on the bread.
Chop the chocolate finely.
Sprinkle it on top of the pears.
Cover the baking dish with cling film
Set the oven dish aside for now and make the custard
Beat the eggs until frothy in a large bowl.
Beat the remaining ingredients into the eggs.
Pour the custard over the brioche bake.
Cover again and place the dish in the fridge.
Place the oven dish about 30 minutes in the refrigerator, so the bread can soak up the custard

Let the Brioche Pudding cool slightly.
Beat the cream with the sugar until stiff.
The first slice is for Mum!
