Bread pudding with caramel ice-cream


You'll need

700 ml milk 150 gm good-quality soft white bread (½ loaf), crusts removed, coarsely torn 75 gm seedless raisins ½ tsp each ground ginger, ground allspice and ground cinnamon ½ tsp finely grated nutmeg Finely grated rind and juice of ½ orange 60 gm butter, melted and cooled 2 eggs, lightly beaten 260 gm caster sugar 1 tsp plain flour   Caramel ice-cream 180 gm caster sugar 80 ml (1/3 cup) pouring cream 400 ml milk 6 egg yolks

Method

  • 01
  • For caramel ice-cream, stir 60gm sugar and 20ml water in a saucepan over medium heat to dissolve sugar, brush down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush and cook without stirring until dark caramel (6-7 minutes). Remove from heat, add half the cream (be careful as hot caramel will spit), swirl to combine and set aside. Combine milk and remaining cream in a saucepan over medium heat, bring to the simmer. Whisk remaining sugar and yolks in a large bowl until pale, gradually add milk mixture, whisking to incorporate. Transfer to a clean saucepan and stir over low-medium heat until mixture coats a spoon thickly (6-7 minutes). Strain into a bowl, add caramel mixture and refrigerate to develop flavours (4 hours). Freeze in an ice-cream machine, then freeze until required. Makes about 800ml.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, combine milk, bread, raisins, spices, orange rind and orange juice in a bowl, stir to combine, refrigerate to develop flavours (2 hours), then stir through melted butter.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 175C. Whisk eggs and 200gm sugar in a bowl until pale (3-4 minutes), then whisk in flour. Stir in bread mixture and pour into a 6cm-deep, 18cm x 26cm ovenproof dish. Scatter with remaining sugar, place dish in a large roasting tray and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up sides of dish. Bake until golden and just set (30 minutes). Serve warm with caramel ice-cream.
