  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F.). Cut the brioche into thin slices and butter one side.

  2. 2

    Place the brioche in a shallow, ovenproof baking dish, placing the buttered side down. Sprinkle a few pieces of chocolate over the top. Layer the brioche and chocolate until they are gone.

  3. 3

    Beat the egg, egg yolks and sugar in a mixing bowl. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until simmering, and beat the milk into the egg mixture.

  4. 4

    Pour the contents of the mixing bowl over the baking dish. Press the brioche into the milk with clean hands or a large spoon.

  5. 5

    Place the ovenproof baking dish inside a roasting pan. Fill the roasting pan with boiling water until the water reaches the halfway level of the baking dish.

  6. 6

    Bake for 28 to 35 minutes, or until the custard is firm. Cool for 7 to 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
