Sempoi Choc & Strawberry Bread Pudding

Please don't mind the looks ;) ... the recipe is great ... 

3 small croissants (recommended by the recipe, I used 5 pieces soft white bread with crust)
100g white chocolate, chopped coarsely (I used plain choc)
1 cup raspberries (I used strawberries coz that's all i had, roughly chopped)
1 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup cream (in case you do not have this, add another 1/2 cup of milk)
2 tablespoon caster sugar (can reduce if you want to control the sweetness)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
3 eggs

- preheat oven 160'c, grease & line large muffin pan with baking paper in every hole
- cut / tear bread into small pieces (not too small though :))
- in a medium saucepan heat milk, cream, sugar & vanilla till over medium heat till boil
- whisk egg in a bowl, 
- remove milk mixture from heat and slowly pour eggs while whisking slowly till well combined
- put bread into muffin pan leaving some space in between for chocolate and strawberries
- pour milk mixture (custard) to fill each hole almost to top
- bake in oven for about 25-30 minutes or till almost springy
- take out pan from oven & let the bread pudding rest to cool in pan for about 10-15 minutes

* the recipe recommended to bake using the water bath method that is by placing the muffin pan in a large baking tray filled halfway with hot water, but I don't have a large enough baking tray to fit my muffin pan so i baked it direct + I love having some crusts :D

Happy trying ... :)
