I would class Bread and Butter Pudding as the ultimate comfort food.

It is popular throughout the world but recipes can vary tremendously

This is a traditional English version of the popular dessert.

Since the English are responsible for everything I'm going to blame them for being the ones who started the Bread and Butter Pudding saga

Bread and butter pudding Ingredients

6 thick slices bread
2oz [50g] Sultanas
4 Eggs
1oz [25g] Sugar
2½ Cups Milk
A little sugar for sprinkling on top of the pudding
[Note: The Bread should be slightly stale]

To make the Pudding

Preheat the oven to 325oF [ 170oC ]

Slice the crusts from the bread

Cut into ¼s You can either make squares or triangles

Arrange the bread in layers in a greased ovenproof dish, ensuring that you have 4 ¼s left to place on top of the pudding

Place sultanas between each layer of bread

Pour the milk in a saucepan and heat until the milk is hot, just short of boiling

Mix the eggs and sugar together, in a large bowl and add the hot milk. Stir well while adding

Pour the egg and milk mixture over the bread, ensuring that the top layer of bread is not dislodged

Let the pudding stand for ¼ hour to soak up the milk-egg mixture.

Use the extra sugar to sprinkle over the top of the last layer of bread

Bake the bread and butter pudding for 35-40 minutes until the top of the dessert is brown and crispy

The pudding may either be served as a hot dessert, or it is also lovely served cold, when the bread and butter pudding may be cut into slices
