Good ole Bread and Butter Pudding

Well my last recipe for Banana and Chocolate pudding got me thinking about the original Bread and Butter Pudding that I remember making from my childhood.

So I hunted through my Everyday Cookery recipe book for the traditional Bread and Butter pudding only to realise how simple it really is and what a delicious dessert to make on a cold winters night. Not to mention warm memories of family eating around the dinner table enjoying the pudding.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 600ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • butter
  • nutmeg
  • 6-8 slices bread
Method
  • Beat eggs well. Add milk, sugar, salt and vanilla. (If you are using a thermomix place all ingredients in bowl sp 4 20 seconds)
  • Stir well until sugar has dissolved.
  • Cut crusts off bread and butter.
  • Cut bread into triangles.
  • Pour blended mixture into greased baking dish until bottom is well covered.
  • Arrange bread triangles in baking dish on top of blended mixture.
  • Pour remaining mixture over bread triangles and leave to soak.
  • Sprinkle sultanas over mixture. Sprinkle nutmeg all over dish.
  • Place in slow over (approx 140 degrees) for 20 mins then check to see if custard set.
  • If not set bake for another 10 mins then check. Continue until custard is set.
Options

Enjoy.
