About this recipe:Nothing was wasted in my house growing up, so leftover bread was always made into a pudding. This is an easy bread pudding that is delicious hot or cold, and it's a little different than your typical bread and butter pudding.
Makes: 1 loaf bread pudding
225g day old bread
85g currants or sultanas, or both
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
1 tablespoon milk
85g melted margarine or butter

Soak the bread in cold water for at least 30 minutes.
Squeeze out all the water in a clean tea towel.
Place soaked bread into a bowl and add dry ingredients. Mix well.
Add melted margarine or butter, egg and milk and beat well.
Put into greased loaf tin and bake for about 1 hour at 200 C / Gas 6 in centre of oven.
When cooked, place tin on wire rack for about 5 minutes before turning out.
Soaked the bread in cold strong tea. Gave the bread pudding a darker colour and more flavour. Will make this again as it is the first bread pudding I have made successfully!Perhaps I didn't squeeze enough liquid out on other occasions - previous efforts were always too wet and didn't cook properly. This is a good recipe. - 07 Dec 2011
I didn't squeeze out enough water so the pudding was rather soggy when I turned it out and nearly binned it. Left it on the side overnight and the following morning it was delicious... :D - 07 Oct 2016
