Many popular desserts in the Caribbean are based on classic European favourites, and this is no exception. Brioche or panettone are often used, along with rum-infused raisins and an orange or lime curd. You could substitute with marmalade if you like.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
butter, for greasing and spreading
50g raisins
1 lime, Pared zest, or 1/2 Seville orange
75ml dark rum
6 large slices brioche, panettone or pandoro
Lemon curd, Lime or orange curd, for spreading
nutmeg, for grating
4 eggs
25g caster sugar
500ml whole milk, plus 1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons demerara sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Butter a 1.5-litre oven dish.
  2. Put the raisins and citrus zest in a small saucepan and pour in the rum. Bring to the boil then immediately remove from the heat and leave to infuse.
  3. Spread each slice of bread with butter and a thick layer of curd, then cut each slice into 4 triangles. Arrange a layer of the triangles in the dish, butter and curd side up. Strain the raisins, reserving the rum, and sprinkle over two thirds of the raisins. Grate over a little nutmeg then layer the remaining bread slices over the top.
  4. Whisk the eggs together in a jug, then beat in the caster (superfine) sugar and milk. Add the reserved rum. Pour this mixture over the bread, slowly and carefully – a torrent of liquid will dislodge the bread and make it float out of place.
  5. Sprinkle over the remaining raisins and the demerara sugar, then add a few more rasps of nutmeg. Leave to stand for at least 10 minutes to allow the custard to soak thoroughly into the bread, then bake in the oven for 30–40 minutes until golden brown with slightly caramelized patches from the sugar, butter and curd. Serve with pouring cream.
