Bread & butter pudding – just because…

Winter or summer…there is nothing I love more than a warm and comforting pudding. Bread and butter in particular. Takes all of 10 minutes to prepare and fills your home with a sweet, cinnamony fragrance. This is my version of a classic.

What you’ll need:

6 slices of fresh white bread

soft butter

apricot jam

3 eggs

500ml full cream milk

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 tsp sugar

dessicated coconut

fine cinnamon

What to do:

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.

2. Make sandwiches with the bread – spreading generously with butter and jam. Remove the crusts. Cut diagonally to form triangles. Arrange the six sandwiches in a baking dish, slightly over-lapping eachother.

3. Whisk the eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla essence together in a bowl to form a custardy mixture. Pour over the waiting bread and let it soak through.

4. Sprinkle with the dessicated coconut and lastly…some cinnamon.

Pop into the oven, bake for 45 minutes until puffy and golden brown. Enjoy!

PS: Serve with cream if you dare.  xx
