Quick comfort food with minimal effort.

568ml fresh custard

150ml whole milk

140g white bread

50g dried cherries

Butter, for greasing

5-7 tbsp caster sugar

Preheat the oven to 140°C / 275°F / Gas mark 1.

Grease an oven proof dish lightly with butter and set aside.

In a bowl, stir the custard together with the milk.

Trim the crusts from the bread, cut into triangles, then place in a large bowl with the dried cherries.

Pour over the custard mixture, then mix everything together so bread are coated.

Cook for 30-35 minutes until there is just a slight wobble in the centre of the custard.

Sprinkle over the sugar to cover the surface, then place under a hot grill for 1-2 minutes until the sugar starts to melt and caramelise.
