  • 400ml full-fat milk
  • 200ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ice cream, to serve (optional)


  1. Core the apples, then slice into rings about as thick as a 50p piece. Toss through the lemon juice and 2 tbsp sugar. Spread about 2 /3 of the caramel over the base of a large baking dish (ours was 20 x 30cm).

  2. Layer the brioche and apple rings in the dish in overlapping lines. Dot spoonfuls of the leftover caramel here and there, leaving bits of apple poking out.In a jug, whisk the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla extract and 1 tbsp sugar. Pour the mixture over the brioche and apples, making sure it’s all well covered, then wrap in cling film. Set aside for at least 30 mins, or overnight, in the fridge.

  3. Heat oven to 170C/150C fan/gas 3. Uncover the pudding and scatter with the remaining 1 tbsp sugar. Bake for 45-50 mins until the top is golden and the custard has set. The caramel should be bubbling around the edges and the pudding puffed up. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if you like.

Very easy to prepare and bake. It was the first time recipe for me. I halved the contents for the Two of us. Next time I would be a bit stingier on the sugar content as I found it to be very sweet, almost made my teeth feel soft! Very tasty nevertheless. Next time I think I will scale it to one third contents

I worried that this would be too sweet! It isn't! Very well balanced and a beautifully light and fluffy pud. I halved it (you have to use two whole eggs) and that worked well - just need some ideas to use up the extra caramel!
