Bread and Butter Pudding Recipe - at sister's request

200ml cream
200ml milk
6 tbsp sugar
3 eggs
3-4 pieces bread
A little butter
A handful of currants/raisins (I omitted here)

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

You will also need a 2 pound loaf tin (one of the oblong kind) or use the disposable aluminium container as I have done here, well buttered.

1. Butter the bread and cut each slice of buttered bread in 4 (triangular shape) – leaving the crusts on. Now arrange one layer of buttered bread over the base of the baking dish, sprinkle the half the currants over, then cover with another layer of the bread slices and the remainder of the currants.

2. Combine the cream and milk in a saucepan and heat up using a low heat (do not boil), test with finger remove from heat when it’s just warm.

3. In a bowl, stir the sugar and eggs together. When they are well-combined pour the cream and milk mixture into the eggs, stirring all the time.

4. Strain 3 and pour over the bread. Rest for 5 minutes before putting into oven.

5. Bake for 20 minutes. Lower the heat if top is too brown.
