  • 750 ml milk
  • 250 ml cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 4 large eggs separated
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 4 tbsp mixed berry jam
  • A pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Keep a large baking pan ready.
  • Heat milk, cream, and sugar and stir till sugar is dissolved. There is no need to boil the mixture. Switch off the flame, add vanilla essence. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Take egg yolks in a bowl. Beat on medium speed for a couple of minutes.
  • Slowly add the milk cream mixture and continue beating till well combined.
  • Add the bread crumbs and beat again.
  • Pour into the baking pan. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes till the pudding looks well set on the top.
  • Meanwhile, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt till stiff.
  • Add in the sugar and continue beating till it peaks, ie. when you lift up the beater, the mixture would stand up without dropping.
  • Once the pudding is set, take out and spread the jam all over.
  • Dump the beaten egg white and spread equally all over. Put back into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes till the top looks done.
  • Allow to cool. This pudding can be served warm or cold - I personally prefer it cold, though even when warm, it tastes good.
