Bread and Butter Pudding

Well this week has been a ride.

I went for the job I’ve been acting in for the last 7 weeks.

I got down to the final three. I had a second interview. It was between me and someone else.

I didn’t get it.

I could go in to quite a wallow here. You’d all write lovely things and eventually I will get over feeling like a complete and utter loser. Instead, I have decided to share one of my favourites, because happiness is baking.

Bread and butter pudding

  • 10 slices of bread, buttered and cut into triangles – it is divine with left-over/stale croissant (just cut them in half across ways)
  • handful of sultanas – optional (rather lovely if you’ve soaked them in some grand marnier or liqueur before hand)
  • 500ml milk (or cream, it is rather lovely made with cream)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 60g caster sugar
  • brown sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and butter a baking dish
  2. Layer the bread in a dish and scatter over the sultanas
  3. Mix the milk, eggs, vanilla and caster sugar together thenĀ pour over the bread
  4. Let sit for 10 minutes thenĀ scatter over some brown sugar, pop in the oven and back for 45 minutes.

Serve with cream, custard, ice cream or all three.
