Slow Cooker Brioche and Strawberry Pudding
A comforting pudding made in the slow cooker, using up stale brioche slices
- 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
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.
