The are some pluses and minuses to having a food blog. I arrived home on Friday night to a mother who has been keenly reading my blog and made a little list of things I was to make on Saturday. (Those Chorizo burgers are proving quite popular!) You can tell I’m at home from the pictures as the kitchenware is so much nicer than my slap-dash set! This dessert happened by chance off the back of an epic fail when I tried to make custard tarts yesterday. I was left with weird pastries but lots of lovely yummy runny custard infused with vanilla pod, orange zest & cinnamon that seemed a shame to throw out. So with the addition of some white bread, butter, nutmeg & raisins this tasty pudding was born.
I love bread and butter pudding! All pudding type desserts (sticky toffee pudding, hot chocolate pudding etc) are just so comforting and easy.This is crazily easy to make and always tends to be a crowd pleaser. Just two notes: Make sure you use good quality bread (sliced pan doesn’t cut the mustard), secondly I forgot to put brown sugar on top of mine which is why it’s not slightly caramelised, it still tasty yummy though. Give it a go & you won’t regret it!

Ingredients:

1 loaf of fresh white bread cut into nice even slices (not too thick, not too thin)

1 whole nutmeg & grater

butter

Raisins (about a handful or two)

3 tbsp brown sugar

For the custard:

100g caster sugar

2 tbsp cornflour

500ml whole milk

4 egg yolks

zest of an orange

pinch of cinnamon

1 vanilla pod (insides scraped out)

 

1. To make the runny custard milk together the egg yolks, sugar, cornflour and slowly whisk in the milk. Add orange zest, cinnamon and vanilla and set aside

2. Cut the crusts off your bread and butter on one side. Get a nice casserole or lasagne dish and make a bread layer with the buttery side facing down. Then spinkle with grated nutmeg (freshly grated is best) and raisins. Repeat these layers until you reach to the top of the dish but don’t sprinkle raisins or nutmeg on the top layer. Instead pour over your custard slowly and evenly. Sprinkly with a little brown sugar.

3. Pop into an oven preheated at 180C for 30-40 minutes. Serve with cream.
