BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING - with classic custard sauce

Bread and butter pudding is a traditional dessert popular in British cuisine. It is made by layering slices of buttered bread scattered with raisins in an oven dish into which an egg and milk mixture, commonly seasoned with nutmeg and sometimes vanilla or other spices. It is then baked in an oven and served. Some people may serve it with custard or cream, but often the pudding under the crust is moist enough to be without sauce.
10 slices bread
1 1/4 cups milk
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar/castor sugar
2 large egg - beaten
1/4 cup raisins ;)
Generously butter the bread and cut/tear it into 4. You may also trim the crusts from bread and save crusts for another use. Place in a large baking dish and cover with milk. Let it rest for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 175 C. Beat sugar and egg together until smooth. Pour into prepared dish and sprinkle with raisins. Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes or until set.
Classic Custard Recipe : 1 cup milk - 1 tbsp vanilla - 4 tbsp sugar - 2 egg yolk (lightly beaten). Put the milk in a pot and bring to boil. Stir in sugar and egg. Heat gently and stirring all the time until the mixture is thick enough. Add in vanilla. Serve hot with bread and butter pudding. Yummy!!
