METHOD

Step 1

Set up your BBQ smoker for indirect cooking at 350°F (175°C).

Cut the brioche rolls in half length ways and butter both sides. Then butter a heat proof dish and place the buttered bread in the dish, whilst scattering the blueberries in between.

Step 2

To make the custard, cream together the whole eggs, egg yolks, and caster sugar, then mix in the cream and milk. Scrape out the vanilla pod and add to the custard, discarding the pod. 

Step 3

Pour the custard over the brioche and allow to soak for 30 mins, then sprinkle with the flaked almonds and light brown sugar.

Step 4

When ready to cook, add your ProQ Smoking Wood Chips or Chunks.

Cook the pudding for 45 minutes until crisp and golden on top. Allow the pudding to cool for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Lightly whip double cream, add a dash of amaretto liqueur, and serve on the side of your pudding, if you like.
