Difficulty Level: 🌕🌕🌑🌑🌑
- 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
- Amazin’ Graze’s Antioxidant Berry Trail Mix
- Coconut or vanilla ice cream, to serve
- Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F. Lightly grease a 6-cup capacity ovenproof dish with softened butter.
- Heat rum in a small saucepan until simmering. Remove from heat and add raisins to soak. Set aside for 15 minutes.
- Butter one side of each slice of bread. Layer slices, slightly overlapping, into the greased ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over rum-soaked raisins.
- Place sugar, Chinese five-spice, coconut milk and eggs into a large bowl. Whisk until well combined.
- 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.
- Serve warm with ice cream.
- 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
