A British classic recipe for Bread & Butter Pudding

Step 1:

Grease an oven dish with butter

Step 2:

Butter one side of each slice of bread, then cut into triangles

Step 3:

Arrange a layer of bread in the bottom of the dish, buttered side up.

Step 4:

Add a layer of raisins and half a teaspoon of cinnamon. Repeat the layers of bread, raisins and cinnamon until the bread runs out, finishing with a layer of bread.

Step 5:

Meanwhile, make the custard by adding the milk and cream to a saucepan over a low heat until it starts to bubble.

Step 6:

Crack the eggs into a bowl, add 3 and half tablespoons of sugar, and whisk until well combined.

Step 7:

Add the milk and cream mixture into the eggs and stir well.

Step 8:

Using a sieve, strain the mixture into a bowl to get rid of any solid bits.
