Preheat oven to 120oC/100oC fan.

Melt sugar and butter in a pan. Add apple and stir until the apple has softened. Turn off heat.

Whisk cream and milk together with the eggs; add vanilla pod seeds.

In an ovenproof dish, layer apple and brioche.

Leave the caramelised sugar and butter in the pan.

Pour milk mixture over the brioche and apple.

Soak for 30 minutes.

Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour.

Reheat the remaining caramel and add maple syrup, then brush mixture over the top of the brioche and apple.

Brown the top under the grill – to a crisp texture if preferred.


The brioche can be assembled in the dish up to 8 hours beforehand, allowing additional time for preparation.

For pure indulgence, add chocolate for a richer taste.
