Wonderful flavour! Will be making this over the Christmas holidays for sure. I used dried cranberries as the recipe did not specify. I halved the recipe, reduced the sugar and the baking time was 28 minutes in my oven. I will be increasing the milk/egg ratio a wee bit. Love the brioche for bread pudding. Thanks for sharing Ellie!
