Strawberry Brioche Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread pudding perfectly embodies the true spirit of casseroles, elevating everyday ingredients in a baking dish until they are transformed into something far greater than their individual parts. This delicious dessert casserole from Donna Hay’s new cookbook Donna Hay: The New Classics takes buttery brioche bread and fresh strawberries and transforms them into something truly divine.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups milk
  • 2 Cups heavy cream
  • 8 egg yolks
  • ½ Cup caster (superfine) sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 7 Ounces brioche loaf, sliced
  • ¼ Cup currants
  • pounds strawberries, hulled and halved
  • ¼ raw sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the milk and cream in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until just boiling.

Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside. Place the egg yolks, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl and whisk to combine. Gradually whisk the warm milk mixture into the egg mixture to combine the two.

Arrange the brioche slices in the base of a lightly greased 8-inch baking dish. Pour the custard over the brioche and top with the currants and strawberries.

Sprinkle with the sugar and bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden.

Strawberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
