Bread and butter pudding
- 6 slices white bread
- 75g butter
- 50g mixed dried fruit
- 50g caster sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 600ml milk
- Remove crusts from bread and spread thickly with butter. Cut each slice into 4 (squares or triangles)
- Butter a 1.2 litre ovenproof dish and arrange slices of bread over the bottom and sprinkle with fruit and sugar. Add another layer of bread with the rest of the fruit and half the remaining sugar. Cover with remaining bread, butter side up, and sprinkle with the rest of the sugar. Beat the eggs well into the milk and pour over the pudding.
- Leave to stand for 30 mins or so to allow the bread to soak up the milk.
- Bake at 170C/Gas 3 for 45-60 mins until crisp and golden. Serve hot with cream.
