2 tsp of vanilla extract if using cornflour (omit if using custard powder)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
Assemble all the ingredients in an oven-proof dish.
To make the custard, combine the cornflour or custard powder and sugar in a sauce pan and mix together. Add 1 cup of milk and whisk to remove lumps. Add the remaining milk and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from heat once at desired consistency.
Pour over custard and mix contents well, ensuring that all the bread is covered in custard
Place the dish in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden – let it sit for 10 minutes before enjoying
Serve warm or cold, topped with dairy-free yoghurt or ice cream
