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 then pour over the bread
  4. Let sit for 10 minutes then scatter over some brown sugar, pop in the oven and back for 45 minutes.

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

    as per my text, they don’t know what they’re missing…

    I’m swinging between being majorly pissed off, devestated, embarrassed, mopey and then back to pissed off.

    I hate the person who got the job purely by default.

    And I bet she’s thin.

  • Suse

    I adore B&BP.

    Poo to the job and to the thin woman who got it. She doesn’t have your chutzpah anyway.

    I know, so f8ing unfair. AND, to add insult to injury, it turned out I was one of those people who only lose weight AFTER they stop breastfeeding. So there I was, fat, bleeding and tied to the tit. Who’d be a woman?

    My word verif is “qostib” which is, I believe, the Ukrainian translation of exactly that question!

  • Joke

    Not to deviate you from your well-earned rant, but is the brown sugar the light or dark stuff?


  • Blue Moon Girl

    Aw kim, I had been so hoping for you. I hate the person who got the job too! But I do have to say thank you for the recipe, it sounds yummy!! (as do most of the recipes you post!) 🙂

  • MsCellania

    Jay-sus, Joke; give the woman a “You’ve Been Robbed and it’s their loss!” and THEN
    ask about the sugar!

    So, Kim –
    I’m so sorry about the job. And yes, I bake when upset, as well. It helps.

    And – about that sugar….

  • Kim

    Hey all – doesn’t matter – I’ve used both. I probably prefer the normal brown sugar to the dark stuff in this instance, but if it’s all you’ve got, scatter away.
