My hubby's favourite dessert when he was a kid was always bread and butter pudding. He actually use to make this all by himself when he was young but I'm yet to try his version of it.... He's quite the experimental cook and I haven't let him cook anything lately if it can be helped!
Anyway, he hasn't been feeling well these days just down and miserable with a bad cold so I made this for him tonight. I hope it cheers him up.
Bread and Butter Pudding
3 slices of thickly sliced bread, cut into quarters
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnnamon
1 tsbp desiccated coconut
1/4 cup sultanas
2 1/2 cups milk
1. Cut the bread into triangular quarters. (I used a Japanese sliced bread for this pudding, thick and sweet) Butter each piece of bread and arrange them with the triangle upright into an shallow ovenproof dish.
2. Sprinkle the cinnamon, sugar and sultanas over the bread.
3. In a bowl combine the milk, eggs and vanilla essence. Pour the mixture over the bread and leave it to soak for about 5 mins.
4. Sprinkle the desiccated coconut over the pudding and bake it for about 40 mins or until the top is golden. Remove and serve hot.
