Ingredients for Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe

50 g sultanas
4 slices of white or wholemeal bread spread with butter or margarine
3 eggs
50 g caster sugar
2-3 drops of vanilla essence or a vanilla pod
Half litre of milk, either whole or skimmed

For the egg custard
3 small eggs
50 g caster sugar
2-3 drops of vanilla essence
220ml milk
220 ml double cream
Grated nutmeg


Wash the sultanas and place half of them in a pie dish.
Remove the crusts from the bread and cut each slice into triangles and neatly arrange overlapping in the pie dish placing the rest of the sultanas between the layers of bread and butter.

Prepare the egg custard by whisking the eggs, sugar and vanilla essence. If you are using the vanilla pod, split the pod and scrape out the seeds into the mixture.

Warm the milk and cream and then pour the warmed milk and cream over the egg and sugar mixture, whisking continuously.
Pass the egg custard through a fine strainer onto the bread and butter in the pie dish, then dust with some sugar.

Add a little grated nutmeg and then wipe the edge of the pie dish clean.

Stand in a roasting tray half full of water or bain-marie and cook slowly in a moderate oven, 180 degrees Celsius for around 30 minutes or until cooked.

Serve hot with ice cream or clotted cream and some fruit of your choice and enjoy!
