Nan's Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread and Butter Pudding drenched in my own special sauce,
is delicious served with cream or ice cream

Every so often I feel like making a really comforting dessert. A few weeks ago I had a loaf of stale white bread and decided to turn it into Bread and Butter pudding for the Creare Children to enjoy after dinner. My husband’s paternal grandmother (who taught me how to cook Salt beef and vegetables see recipe here) showed me how to make the most delicious bread and butter pudding. A few years ago I designed my own recipe for a sauce to pour over the cooked pudding and which makes it even more decadent than ever!

Here is the recipe.
Bread and Butter Pudding (Grandma Nan's recipe)

Loaf sliced fresh white bread
Apricot Jam
3 Cups Milk
3 Eggs
2 teasp Vanilla Essence

Sauce (my own)
250g Butter (or margarine)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons Water
Cook sauce ingredients for about 5 minutes

Spread slices of bread with butter and jam
Lay the slices (butter/jam-side up) in a baking dish
Pour milk, eggs and vanilla in a jug and beat well
Sprinkle raisins over the bread
Pour the milk over
Allow to soak for about 15 minutes
Place in preheated oven (180 °C) for 30 – 35 minutes
It should rise and brown nicely
Remove from oven and pour sauce over
Serve hot with ice-cream or cream
