Ingredients

Serves: 4 

  • 8 slices of stale bread (crusts as well), any type
  • 2 eggs
  • 425ml (3/4 pint) of milk
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • butter
  • dried fruit
  • sugar

Method

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Butter the bread (I like to put some butter on both sides of the crusts) and cut into triangles.
  2. Grease a casserole dish or deep sided cake tin, and add a layer of buttered bread. Sprinkle with sugar and dried fruit. Repeat layers until all the bread is evenly distributed, then mix the egg and milk and pour over the bread. Press down firmly to compress the puddding and help the bread absorb the milk mixture.
  3. Pop in the oven at 180 C / Gas 4 and bake until golden brown and the custard mixture is set. I like to serve this with custard but it goes well with cream, ice cream or on its own.

Used different ingredients. add a sprinkle of cinnamon on top before putting into the oven. It goes esp. well if your using raisins. - 29 Apr 2009

Used different ingredients. I followed the advice of princessgirl and spread the bread with Nutella instead of butter and only one side. This is a wonderful easy dish that EVERYONE loved! We are having it for Christmas dinner's dessert tomorrow! - 24 Dec 2009
