Recipe for "Ofenschlupfer" (bread pudding)
(serves 4)

  • 350 g yeast bun plait
  • 400 g cored apples (e.g. Elstar)
  • 60 g raisins
  • 60 g flaked almonds
  • 140 g liquid whole egg (equivalent to 3 eggs)
  • 340 ml milk (3.5%)
  • 70 g sugar
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • ½ vanilla pod

Cut the bun plait into thin slices. Wash the apples, remove the cores and cut into quarters. Slice finely.
For the sweet royale custard, mix the milk, liquid whole egg, sugar, vanilla and ground cinnamon using a hand blender. Place the apple slices in a bowl and coat with the sugar and cinnamon. Butter a baking tray and layer the bun slices and then the apples on it. Add some raisins if liked.

Pour over the royale custard mixture and sprinkle with flaked almonds. Bake at 160°C for about 40 minutes. Then cut into slices as required and serve warm. To go with the Ofenschlupfer we recommend vanilla custard and vanilla ice cream.
