You can easily swap the raspberry jam in this pudding for another of your choice, or try with tangy marmalade or lemon curd instead. For some other twists, try one of these ideas:
Whole queen of puddings: To make a whole pudding instead of individual ones, put the custard mixture in a 1 x 1.5ltr baking dish and cook for 25 mins. Spread with jam and bake the piped meringue topping for 7-8 mins.
Chocolate and coconut: Replace the whole milk with a carton of drinking coconut milk. Add 50g desiccated coconut and 100g chocolate chunks to the breadcrumb mixture before stirring it into the warm milk. Scatter 15g desiccated coconut over the piped meringue topping before baking.
Cherry and Madeira: Instead of breadcrumbs, use 150g of crumbled Madeira cake with the sugar, lemon zest and butter. Swap the raspberry jam for cherry.
