Sous Vide Brioche Bread Pudding
The Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker provides a new way to make bread pudding — one of our favorite desserts, as along as there are no raisins. The one thing it’s missing, though, is the crusty top you get from cooking in the oven. To get that, just put these under the broiler for 2-3 minutes once they come out of the Anova. If you use mason jars or ramekins they can go straight under the broiler.
