White bread

140 g, crusted removed, 6 slices

Apricot jam

2 tbs

Dried apricots

¼ cup(s)

Skim milk

1 cup(s)


2 small

Caster sugar

1 tbs

Vanilla bean extract

1 tsp

Flaked almonds

1 tbs


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Spread each slice of bread with jam and cut into 4 triangles. Press half the bread into four ½-cup (125ml) capacity ovenproof dishes and place on a baking tray. Sprinkle dried apricots over bread in dishes.
  2. Whisk milk, eggs, caster sugar and essence in a jug until combined. Pour half the egg mixture over bread and apricots. Top with remaining bread and gradually pour over remaining egg mixture, allowing it to soak into the bread.
  3. Sprinkle with almonds and bake for 20–25 minutes or until custard is set and golden. Serve dusted with icing sugar.
