Bread and Butter Pudding

One of our Mums from Acorns USW sent in the pictures of her daughter helping cook this delicious recipe for Bread and Butter Pudding. Here is the recipe if you would like to make it too.

You will need:
25g/1oz butter, plus extra for greasing
8 thin slices bread
50g/2oz sultanas
2 tsp cinnamon powder
350ml/12fl oz full-fat milk
50ml/2fl oz double cream
2 free-range eggs
25g/1oz granulated sugar
nutmeg, grated, to taste
1.Grease a 1 litre pan (brownie tin) with butter. Spread each slice of bread with butter on one side, then cut into triangles. 2. Arrange a layer of bread, buttered-side up, in the bottom of the dish, then add a layer of sultanas. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon, then repeat the layers of bread and sultanas, sprinkling with cinnamon, until you have used up all of the bread. Finish with a layer of sultanas and cinnamon, then set aside.
3. Gently warm the milk and cream in a saucepan over a low heat to scalding point. Do not let it boil.
4. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add three-quarters of the sugar and lightly whisk until pale. Add the warm milk and cream mixture and stir well. Pour the custard over the prepared bread layers, sprinkle with nutmeg and the remaining sugar and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
5. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Place the dish into the oven and bake for 30–40 minutes, or until the custard has set and the top is golden brown.
