    An old favourite is given a new twist! The brioche gives it a lovely rich flavour, but this recipe also works well with soft-baked batch bread.

    Used different ingredients. I used pre-sliced chocolate brioche loaf as well as the chocolate chips, so it worked out about 300g to make two layers. I also added vanilla essence to the custard - yummy!  -  09 Feb 2011


    A truly vile dish. The evaporated milk made it taste like chemicals. Do not use this recipe on others unless you have tested out.  -  19 Mar 2012
