3 In a bowl, beat eggs together with almond milk, syrup, sugar and vanilla. Pour over the bread to cover evenly. Press down lightly. Leave to stand for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
4 Preheat oven to 180°C. Sprinkle top of pudding with a little ground nutmeg. Bake for 45 minutes or until lightly golden and firm to touch.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free bread and check spices, almond milk and icing sugar are gluten free.
Make it low FODMAP: Swap the rye bread for wheat or spelt sourdough bread.
You can leave the pudding to soak for up to 4 hours.
You can use wholegrain bread instead of rye, but rye gives a lighter texture.
