Bread slices: 8
Milk: 1.5 cups
Sugar: 2/3 cup
Vanilla extract : 1 tsp
Sugar: 2 tablespoon
Water: 2-3 tsp
Tear the bread into pieces and add this to the milk.
Add sugar & vanilla extract and mash it well.
Heat 2 tsp of water in a flat pan.After it gets heated add 2 tablespoon of sugar
Do not stir it directly but you can slightly tilt the pan for even heating
After some time, the syrup will turn dark brown.Make sure it does not gets burnt
Immediately pour this caramel in a 6 inch round pan and tilt the pan so that the caramel gets well coated in the sides as well
Now pour the prepared bread mixture in the pan.
Cover this pan with an aluminium foil and prick it to make some small holes
Steam cook this for about 25 minutes
Once it is cooked cool down and refrigerate it for atleast 2 hrs.Invert this into a flat plate and cut into desired shapes
Top it with nuts or caramel syrup if desired.I did not use any topping.It tasted great as such
- Make sure you do not burn the caramel. Tilt the pan left and right constantly for even heating.
- I steam cooked in an electric steamer. If using pressure cooker do not use whistle
- Instead of vanilla essence, cardomom powder can also be added.
