This recipe for piping hot bread and butter pudding uses common ingredients and whatever dried fruit, nuts, peel you might find in your pantry.
1 loaf of bread (any bread you like! Even croissants, brioche or sourdough!)
1 litre thickened cream
50g caster sugar
vanilla bean pods
10g nutmeg (to taste)
30g dried fruits or peel or whatever you can find in the pantry!
Soak fruit in ½ cup of hot water & mix in 5 grams of nutmeg allow to sit for at least 1 hour (you can leave this overnight).
In a large bowl mix cream with sugar & scraped vanilla pod, add sliced bread & soak for 30-60 minutes. Make your bread & butter pudding in a baking dish or a standard cake tin. Sprinkle some fruit on the bottom of your dish, create a layer of soaked bread & then sprinkle the nutmeg & fruit. Then make another layer of bread & repeat the process until the dish is 3/4 full. It will rise once baking, so do not over fill the dish. Your last layer should be sprinkled nutmeg & fruit.
Bake in a preheated oven at 160C for 10-15 minutes. Serve with cream, fruit or custard & dust with nutmeg or icing sugar.
