Bread & Butterless Pudding

2 Serves 10 prep 40 cook


oil spray
1 cup skim milk
1 egg
2 tbs reduced-sugar marmalade
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 thick slices of good quality fruit bread, cut into 2cm pieces
1 tbs shredded coconut


Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray 2 x 250ml (1 cup) capacity ovenproof dishes with oil.

Lightly whisk milk, egg, marmalade and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Add bread, stirring gently to ensure all bread is coated in milk mixture. Spoon among dishes, sprinkle with coconut and bake for 35–40 minutes. Serve with low-fat yoghurt or ice-cream.

∞ You can substitute good quality gluten-free fruit loaves or buns. For dairy and egg free, add 2 tsp cornflour to rice or soy milk. It won’t rise as much but will still be delicious.
