For the bread and butter pudding
  • butter to grease
  • 1 x 400g brioche loaf, cut into 12 slices
  • 3 large eggs
  • 75g light brown sugar
  • 200ml double cream
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 4 tbsp brandy
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or extract

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare up to the end of step 4 a few hours ahead.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Put the plums in a roasting tray, scatter with the sugar and then dot with the butter. Roast for 15-20 minutes, or until soft and sticky. Set aside to cool.
  2. Butter a large baking dish (about 23cm x 33cm). Overlap the slices of brioche in the buttered dish, then tuck the roasted plums in between the slices.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together all the remaining pudding ingredients and pour this over the brioche slices. Leave to soak for around 30 minutes.
  4. Reduce the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Meanwhile, make the crumble topping. Put the flour in a bowl and add the cubed butter. Rub in until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir through the oats, demerara sugar and hazelnuts.
  5. Sprinkle the crumble over the surface of the pudding. Place the dish in a roasting tray then half-fill the tray with boiling water. Transfer to the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until puffed up and golden brown.
