Recipe by Maimoona of VIROFLAY, FR

Ingredients vegetarian 8 servings

    • 1 cup breadcrumbs

    • 2 cups boiled milk very hot

    • ¼ cup brown sugar

    • 3 eggs beaten

    • ½ cup black currants or raisins

    • ½ cup orange candied peels


    • Zest of a lemon finely grated

    • ½ tsp salt

    • ½ tsp cinnamon powder

    • 1 tsp baking powder



    1. Soak breadcrumbs in hot milk. Leave for 5 minutes

    2. Add brown sugar, currants, orange peels, salt and cinnamon powder. Mix well.

    3. Add beaten eggs and lastly the baking powder.

    4. Butter a baking dish and fill it with batter upto 2/3.

    5. In a slightly bigger oven dish add boiling water about 1 inch high.

    6. Place the dish with batter into this bigger dish. Check that water level is not too high (in fact it should reach around ½ the height of the dish so that it wouldn’t spill into the pudding mixture).

    7. Place in a preheated oven to 200°C for 30 mins

    8. Then lower the temperature to 180°C and continue baking for 1 to 1 ½ hrs. or till knife inserted comes out clean.

    9. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream, fresh beaten cream or with a pudding sauce.




    Hi Kalyani, brown sugar is a little less refined sugar than the white we usually use. If you don't find it easily, then replace with normal white sugar.
