First prepare the basil dressing. Squeeze the lemon and separate the basil leaves from the stems. Roughly coven to 175 °C. Melt the butter and use a little to grease the pan (15 x 20 cm). Cut the bread into 2 cm cubes. Mix the milk, egg, SteviaSweet Crystal
and chopped almonds in a large bowl. Add the spices and bread cubes and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Pour the mixture into an oven dish, drizzle with the remaining melted butter and bake in the middle of the oven for about 35 to 45 minutes, until the pudding is set.
Rinse the nectarines well. Cut in half and remove the stones. Cut the halves into wedges and then into triangles. Bring the water, SteviaSweet Crystal
and orange juice to the boil. Add the nectarine pieces and orange zest to the hot liquid, cover with a lid or cling film and leave to marinate for 15 minutes.
Finally, prepare the vanilla source. Place the milk, cream, vanilla and SteviaSweet Crystal
into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Separate the egg yolks into a bowl. Pour the hot liquid over the yolks, whisking vigorously. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and, at low temperature, whisk until the mixture thickens and the foam on the top settles.
Serve the bread pudding with the nectarines and vanilla sauce.
