Guava Bread Pudding:

1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter

1 loaf brioche bread, cut into cubes

1 cup brown sugar 

1 cup white sugar 

1 tablespoon ground allspice 

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 

1 tablespoon ground nutmeg 

2 cups milk 

5 large eggs 

1/4 cup golden raisins 

1/2 cup guava paste 

Marshmallow-Vanilla Cream Sauce:

1 cup marshmallows

1/2 cup heavy cream 

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. For the guava bread pudding: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with the butter.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the brioche, 1/2 cup of the brown sugar, and the white sugar, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, milk, eggs, golden raisins and guava paste. Mix well. Transfer to the prepared baking pan.
