    Try using almond milk - it's naturally sweet enough to discount the sugar.  -  10 Sep 2015


    Made this twice now though used fresh apple as I didn't have any apricots. I also added an extra egg and half as much milk again as I especially like the custard part. Very good especially as I need to be on a low fat diet at present. Thanks for sharing.  -  30 Aug 2016


    I made this with some slices of old brioche bread (no butter, but added currants) - it was light, slightly crisp on the top, not too sweet, and really lovely.... I have no idea of ratio I put it together with, but the egg mix didn't quite cover the bread.  -  19 May 2015
