  • Bread slices 10
  • Vanilla custard 2 cups
  • Walnuts 4 tbsp
  • Chopped strawberries ½ cup
  • Milk 600 ml
  • Cream 100 ml
  • Vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • Caster sugar 50 gm
  • Flour 2 tbsp


To make the vanilla custard mix the milk, cream, flour and vanilla. Make sure the corn flour has dissolved completely. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring continuously. Turn the heat to low. Add caster sugar to the custard. Keep whisking. Once the mixture has thickened, transfer the Custard to a bowl and let chill with a piece of cling directly on the surface so no milk film forms. If using in the bread pudding immediately, then pour the custard over the bread slices which are put in a greased glass dish and then layer it with another slice of bread. Sprinkle walnuts and fruits and place the third layer of bread and finally pour all the custard on the top.
Place the bread pudding it in a steamer and steam it for about 10-12 minutes until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove the bread pudding carefully from the steamer. Serve the Steamed Bread Pudding just as it is, or with some more vanilla custard.
