8 chocolate chip brioche fingers (I use le pasquier brioche) approx. 280g
2 ripe bananas, mashed
For the custard
250ml whole milk
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ orange zest
1) First make the custard. Heat the cream and milk till just under boiling point, add orange zest and set aside.2) In a big mixing bowl (enough to hold the cream and milk mixture) beat eggs, sugar and vanilla extract till pale. Pour the cream & milk mixture gently into the egg mixture and mix well. 3) Buttered the dish. Slice the fingers lengthways and dip them into the custard mixture. Repeat. Line the dish with half of the soaked fingers, pour in the mashed bananas and top with the other half of the fingers. (Tip: dip the fingers and put into the dish immediately) 4) Pour the rest of the custard into the dish, completely soaking the brioche fingers. Let it stand for 20 – 30 mins. 5) Preheat oven 150F. Place dish in a roasting pan and fill halfway with hot water. Bake for 35 – 45 mins. Should be crusty at the top and wobbly in the middle.
