Total Time 45 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 4


  • 3-4 pears around 300g
  • 30 g butter
  • 30 g coconut sugar
  • For the bread and butter pudding:
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 150 g good quality vegan butter
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 250 g sliced bread
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 500 ml plant milk oat or soya is best

To serve

Vegan cream or ice cream


  • Peel the pears and slice lengthways into wedges. Add to a pot with the butter and sugar.
  • Stir over a low heat until the pears start to soften and the butter and sugar melt together into a caramel sauce, being careful not to burn the sugar. This should take about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix the vegan butter and cinnamon together. Spread the slices of bread generously with the cinnamon butter on both sides.
  • Arrange the bread in a deep oven tray or dish, overlapping slightly. Spoon the pears and any extra caramel over the bread.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC.
  • Add the corn flour, maple syrup and plant milk to a pot. Whisk until well combined with no lumps and then put onto a medium heat. Bring to a simmer, whisking continuously.
  • Once the mixture starts to bubble, it should start to thicken. Continue to whisk until it becomes a thick, custard consistency. 

Pour the custard over the bread and pears.
  • Bake at 200ºC for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and caramelised. 

Serve warm with vegan cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
