Description

Wait – don’t throw those sandwich crusts and stale bits of bread out – make a custardy bread and butter pudding instead!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 46 cups torn up stale sandwich crusts, hot cross buns, rolls, bread, croissants, etc (Depends on your custard-to-bread ratio – I err on the side of custard!)
  • 700ml milk
  • 100ml cream
  • 4 Large organic, free-range eggs
  • 60g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Place all the bread ends in a baking dish. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Mix together the eggs, sugar, milk, cream, and cinnamon to make the custard.
  3. Pour custard ingredients over the bread, and grate over fresh nutmeg.
  4. Bake in oven until puffed and golden and custard is cooked through, about half an hour to 40 minutes.
  5. ENJOY! (I can often be found ENJOYing straight from the pan…)

Notes

to be honest, the more cream the better in this mix! I like half milk – half cream if I can, so just play with the ratios until you’re happy.
