Decadent Strawberry Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 2-2½ cups sliced strawberries
  • 10-12 slices soft bread
  • 1¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup Verka Butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp grounded cinnamon
  • 2 cups Verka Milk (full-cream)

 

Method:

  • Grease a glass dish with a smear of butter.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • Arrange half the bread slices on the base of the dish.
  • Melt the Verka Butter and drizzle half of it over the bread slices.
  • Beat together the Verka Milk, powdered sugar, cinnamon, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour half of this mixture over the bread slices. Press down till the bread gets fully soaked.
  • Scatter 1 cup of strawberries over the bread, and arrange the remaining bread slices to cover them.
  • Pour the rest of the mixture over the top and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • When the top is brown and bubbling, remove it from the oven.
  • Garnish with the remaining sliced strawberries and serve with a runny cream or custard.

 

Note: You can replace milk with cream for a richer texture. You can also add broken walnuts or almonds in between the layers of bread. If you like the flavour of honey, reduce the quantity of sugar slightly and drizzle some honey over the baked dish.
