You'll need

12 brioche slices, 2cm thick, crusts removed To serve: flaked almonds For dusting: icing sugar To serve: vanilla ice-cream   Earl Grey prunes 130 gm caster sugar 1 star anise 1 tbsp loose-leaf Earl Grey tea 12 small pitted prunes   Chocolate orange custard 125 ml (½ cup) pouring cream 2 tbsp milk Finely grated rind of 1 orange 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped 4 egg yolks 25 gm caster sugar 75 gm dark chocolate (60% cocoa solids), finely chopped   Frangipane 125 gm icing sugar 125 gm butter, softened 125 gm almond meal 25 gm plain flour 3 eggs

Method

  • 01
  • For Earl Grey prunes, bring sugar and 500ml water to the boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, add tea leaves and set aside to infuse (3 minutes). Strain into a bowl over prunes and star anise (discard tea) and refrigerate overnight to macerate.
  • 02
  • For chocolate orange custard, heat cream, milk, rind and vanilla bean in a saucepan over medium heat, to just below boiling, then reduce heat to very low. Whisk egg yolks with sugar and vanilla seeds in a large bowl until pale (4-5 minutes), add to cream mixture, whisking continuously, and cook, whisking continuously, until thickened (8-12 minutes). Add chocolate, mix well, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • 03
  • For frangipane, whisk icing sugar and butter in an electric mixer until pale and creamy (4-6 minutes). Add almond meal and flour, mix to combine, then add eggs one at a time, mixing well between additions until mixture is smooth.
  • 04
  • Preheat oven to 170C. Drain and halve prunes (reserve syrup). Spread chocolate custard over a slice of brioche, top with 4 prune halves, drizzle with a little tea syrup then top with another brioche slice. Spread frangipane over top and sides then scatter with flaked almonds. Repeat with remaining brioche and bake bostock on a tray lined with baking paper until golden (20 minutes). Serve warm dusted with icing sugar and topped with a scoop of ice-cream.

Note Long Shot uses house-made brioche, but we've gone with store-bought. Start this recipe a day ahead to macerate the prunes. This is best eaten on the day it's made.
