• 600-700g of stale bread
  • 400g dried prunes
  • 1L almond milk
  • 20g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon rhum
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut the slate bread into chunks and put it in a wide hollow dish. Pour half to ¾ almond milk over the bread. Set aside until the milk has been completely absorbed. If the bread is still not drenched with milk, add more milk.
  3. Add the prunes, rhum, beaten eggs and sugar. Mix well.
  4. Flour and butter a low cake mould, cook for 40min.
  5. Sprinkle generously with sugar as soon as the mould is withdrawn from the oven
You can of course put regular milk in, though the almond does add a nice taste to the cake...
