  1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C (320 °F).
  2. Heat the water and ¼ cup (60 g/2.1 oz) of sugar in a large frying pan over medium heat until the syrup bubbles.
  3. Add the rhubarb and simmer for 3 minutes, turning occasionally.
  4. Remove the heat and set aside to soak.
  5. Heat the milk, cream and vanilla in a saucepan over a low heat until small bubbles appear.
  6. Meanwhile, combine the remaining sugar, custard powder, and eggs in a heatproof bowl.
  7. Gradually pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking as you go to temper it.
  8. Grease a 30-by−20 cm (12-by−7.9 in), deep baking pan. Butter the bread slices.
