8 - 10 Servings


1 Large Loaf Ciabata Bread, cubed
2 1/2 cups Water
3 Extra-Large Eggs, whisked
1 cup Fresh Cream {double cream/whipping cream}
2 cups Soft Caramels, broken into smaller pieces

1 t Salt
2/3 cup Caramel Chocolate Chips
2 cups Mini Marshmallows
Caramel or Toffee Sauce, to drizzle


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 20cm high-walled oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Place the pieces of Bread in a large mixing bowl - pour the Water over and give it a quick stir - set aside for a minute or two.
3.) Add the Cream, Caramels, Caster Sugar, Vanilla and Salt to the whisked Eggs - stir well to combine - pour over the soaked Bread and mix well.
4.) Transfer to the prepared oven dish - bake 60 minutes or until set - remove from the oven and sprinkle with the Caramel Chocolate Chips and the Marshmallows - bake another 5 - 10 minutes or until the Marshmallows are puffed and golden.
5.) Remove from the oven and let cool at least 10 minutes.

Serve hot, just warm or cold, drizzled with Caramel or Toffee Sauce. Whipped cream, ice-cream or custard goes very well with this pudding !
