Bread and Butter Pudding

Well, I got up early today to post a rather nice sausage and bean recipe on here that I made the other day - all set with pictures but can't find the recipe! It's in one of these hundreds of magazines I have here. Anyway, I've spent way too long looking for it, so will leave that for another day as I have to go to work!

Bread and Butter Pudding

So, instead of sausages you have bread and butter pudding instead!

I have slightly altered one from Delia Smith. She used currents and I don't like them! Her recipe can be found here.

My only concern is that hers says it serves 4-6 people. I say it serves 2-4 but we eat a lot I suppose!

You will need:
8 slices of bread
Approximately 50g butter
55g sultanas
275ml milk
60ml double cream
50g caster sugar
3 eggs
freshly grated nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F Gas 4
**You will also need a 2 pint (1.2 litre) enamel or stoneware baking dish, well buttered.

Butter the bread and cut each slice of buttered bread in half – leaving the crusts on. Now arrange one layer of buttered bread over the base of the baking dish, sprinkle some of the sultanas, then cover with another layer of the bread slices and the remainder of the sultanas.

Bread and Butter Pudding in a bowl

Now, in a jug or bowl, add the milk and the cream. Stir in the caster sugar. Now whisk the eggs in a small basin and then pour into the milk mixture.

Pour the whole lot over the bread, sprinkle over some freshly grated nutmeg, and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Serve warm.

    PS - I hate it when I can't find a recipe I have flagged in a magazine!!! It happens to me all the time! So many recipes, so little time. That should be my by-word!
