Blueberry Almond Baked Custard Brunch or Dessert

Blueberry Almond Baked Custard Brunch or Dessert

Posted 2018-01-15 by finyfollow

I made this for a brunch and then had the leftovers as a dessert the next night.

I didn't have enough blueberries, so I added some strawberries, and baked this egg custard in the oven.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes plus fridge time overnight
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Serves: 4

Ingredients
250 g wholemeal bread, diced
1½ cups blueberries or part strawberries
4 large eggs
1¾ cups milk
¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
1½ tbsp coconut sugar (or light brown)
½ tbsp ground ginger
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup slivered almonds

Method
  • Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Mix the bread and blueberries in this dish.

  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Add the milk, butter, sugar, ginger, vanilla and a bit of salt, and mix to combine.

  • Pour the custard over the bread mixture, and sprinkle with almonds.


  • Coat a piece of foil with cooking spray, and cover the pan, coated side down.

  • Place another baking dish or something heavy on top as a weight, and put in the fridge for at least 8 hours or up to a day.
  • I used pastry balls and plates to weight this down


  • Preheat the oven to 180°/160° fan forced. Remove the weight off the dish leaving the foil there. Let it stand at room temperature while the oven preheats.

  • Bake, covered for about 40 minutes, then uncover and bake a further 15 or so minutes until it is golden.


  • Let stand a few minutes before serving, and I served it with custard!
