If you’re craving a sweet breakfast casserole, this chocolate orange bread pudding recipe is just for you. It’s a great way to use the rest of my Homemade Chocolate Orange Braided Bread. Just like my homemade bread, this breakfast casserole is a vegan food recipe. Vegan custard is super easy to make as you shall see!
Some days my sweet tooth is like let’s start the day the sweet way. I’m cool with that! Beautiful thick bread cannot go to waste, and vegan custard is the way to go. No need to worry about having eggs around and it’s a dish the whole family enjoys. A dairy-free and vegan dish, so really a healthier option for a comfort food breakfast. Although I usually enjoy this as a breakfast casserole recipe, my kids think it’s dessert. Winning!!!
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS VEGAN BREAD PUDDING RECIPE
Ya’ll heard it’s got chocolate in it right? Enough said! But wait, it’s got oranges too? Ok, bye.
Easy recipe. All ingredients can be found at any grocery store.
Vegan and dairy-free

My homemade braided bread recipe is the bread I highly recommend using for this recipe. So easy to make! If you don’t want to make the bread just yet, keep in mind, the thicker the bread the better!
Again, refer to my braided bread recipe for the marmalade-ish mixture. This is not orange marmalade, but a mixture I use that although I don’t eat as it, works so great in dishes such as this chocolate orange bread pudding recipe.
If vegan, remember to use vegan chocolate chips! Dark chocolate is the best for this recipe.
If not vegan, use 6 eggs and buttermilk. Leave the remaining ingredients the same.
I take a subtle approach to the amount of sugar in the custard. My personal favorite is shared in the recipe card at 3/4 cup of sugar. Depending on your liking however, anything more than 2 cups of sugar is too much. Remember there is chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, and orange marmalade in this recipe too.
Other bread to use: challah, brioche, or any thick crusty bread. Day old or stale preferred.
I hope you enjoy this breakfast casserole as much as my family does. Dig in!
