Five-Spice Bread & Butter Pudding

This is comfort food with an Asian twist. Using coconut milk and five-spice for the custard will turn an old-fashioned favourite into a modern sensation. Use up leftover bread to make a winter dessert that’s not quite like grandma used to make.

FIVE-SPICE BREAD & BUTTER PUDDING

PREP TIME

25 minutes

COOK TIME

55 minutes

SERVES

6

Ingredients

¼ cup raisins

 ¼ cup rum

10 slices thick white bread, crusts removed

50g (1.76 oz) unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing

150g (5 oz) caster sugar

2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder

500ml coconut milk

4 eggs

Coconut or vanilla ice cream, to serve

Steps

Step 1

Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F. Lightly grease a 6-cup capacity ovenproof dish with softened butter.

Step 2

Heat rum in a small saucepan until simmering. Remove from heat and add raisins to soak. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Layer slices, slightly overlapping, into the greased ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over rum-soaked raisins.

Step 4

Place sugar, Chinese five-spice, coconut milk and eggs into a large bowl.  Whisk until well combined.

Step 5

Pour liquid mixture over the bread. Stand for 10 minutes so the bread absorbs some of the liquid. Then pop the whole thing into your preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the pudding is just set and the top is golden brown.

Step 6

Serve warm with ice cream.

Step 7

To bake ahead and reheat: Pudding can be baked ahead, cooled and then reheated when ready to serve. To reheat, cover with foil and warm for 20-30 minutes in a 160°C/320°F oven. Or bake in a microwave-proof dish and reheat in the microwave
