Equipment

Ingredients

  • Half a loaf of sliced brioche bread
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 10 strawberries sliced in half or quarters
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 300 ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 3 tsp caster sugar
  • honeycomb pieces to decorate
  • 15 g butter for greasing

Instructions

  • Grease the bowl of your slow cooker with butter.
  • Cut the brioche slices into triangles. Put half of the brioche triangles in the pot, arranging them around the sides.
  • Top the brioche with 1 tsp caster sugar and half the strawberries.
  • Put the rest of the brioche triangles on top, and sprinkle over the second teaspoon of caster sugar.
  • Whisk together the eggs and milk and 3 tsp of caster sugar in a jug.
  • Pour the mixture over the brioche, and place the remaining strawberries on top. Sprinkle over some honeycomb pieces.
  • Put a clean tea towel under the lid of your slow cooker (I used a 3.5 litre round slow cooker here), and put the lid on. Fold up the sides of the tea towel so it doesn't hang over the sides.
  • Cook for approx. 2 hours on high, or until the custard is set and the pudding is starting to brown.
    Tip: The time needed really depends on your slow cooker and how hot it cooks, so keep an eye out and check your pudding regularly.
