Posh Bread N' Butter Pudding...

How do you like your Tea? Sugar, Milk, Honey? I like it light with Sugar or Honey & a Slice of Lemon.
How about  Bread N' Butter Pudding...? Serve with with home-made yogurt, ice cream, custard or cream? That! would be just perfect with Vanilla Ice Cream & a cup of  Twinnings Earl Grey Tea.

So, I decided to make my own homemade B&B pudding for TEA instead of indulging myself with some sweet 'wicked' dessert at Alexis Bistro, Bangsar *Alexis B&B pudding is simply Gorgeous*.   With the help from  'Google'... of coz.  Here's The Traditional British Bread N' Butter Pudding Easy Recipe that gives you THIS as a result:-)

*grin from ear to ear*.... for the 1st try ^:^

    I'm lovin' it 

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4 persons
    • 8 slices of brown or white bread (traditionally white bread is used)
    • 3 cups of milk
    • 3 beaten eggs
    • 113g / 4 oz brown sugar *if you use caster sugar reduce it*
    • 85g / 3oz sultanas *I used Ligo raisins*
    • 1 tsp vanilla essence
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon *I omit this coz I prefer the 'non-cinnamon' taste*
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • Butter (enough to butter the bread and to grease the baking dish)
    Method
    1. Pre-heat the oven to 170C / 325F
    2. Grease a 5cm / 2inches deep oven proof baking dish.
    3. Thinly butter each of the slices of bread on both sides, covering the whole slice right to the corners and cut into 4 triangles.
    4. Place a layer the buttered bread on the bottom of the dish, slightly overlapping each triangle.
    5. Sprinkle with sultanas and sugar and make another layer. Continue in this way until the bread is finished. Sprinkle fewer sultanas on the top, but do give a generous sprinkling of sugar.
    6. Beat together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla and salt and pour the mixture over bread.
    7. Allow to stand for 30 minutes so that the bread can absorb the liquid.
    8. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. * 40-45 mins for my oven*
    9. The top should be golden brown.  If you reduced the baking time, the bread and butter pudding stays a little moist, which some people prefer.
    Its quite a detailed method given there but "Visual Cooking" is definitely a plus...Yes! Learn To Cook with "You Tube" that can teach you to cook anything. "Now Everyone Can Cook"... huh;-)

    Before you watch the video, please note that I still follow the above Recipe,  in other words this POSH NOSH BBC TV Series just for me to see the 'step by step preparation'...it helps!



    Don't curse me if you hate them both "Simon & Minty" hahaha. A long -winded explanation on the history of  this n that but its quite funny though.  I always luv the Brits accent. The way Minty says "fluff  (the eggs) diplomatically..!^;^  Oh one more thing...No Cognac (brandy) used in my Bread N' Butter Pudding ahaks;-)

    You might wanna have B&B pudding for Brekkie or Tea this weekend. Just give it a shot;-)

    XoXo
