Bread & Butter Pudding

I had a request the other day from someone who reads my blog, for a bread and butter pudding recipe, so here it is.

The muscavado sugar forms a wonderful, crunchy topping in this recipe. My friend, Marianne, the self-proclaimed Queen of bread and butter pudding eating, has given it the stamp of approval.

6 stale croissants

5 eggs

250ml milk

250ml cream

60g soft butter

5ml cinnamon

125ml fruit cake mix

60ml muscavado sugar

80ml castor sugar

5ml vanilla extract

Cut each croissant into three pieces.

Fill a medium casserole dish with the croissant pieces and set aside.

Beat the milk, cream, eggs, castor sugar and vanilla essence well.

Sprinkle fruit cake mix over the croissants and pour the milk mixture over the croissants, taking care to cover all the pieces with the mixture.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until custard is set.

Serve warm, with more cream or custard. Make sure everyone gets a bit of the crunchy bit.
