Christmas Bread and Butter Pudding

Christmas Bread and Butter Pudding
Overview

Makes about 12 pieces

Ingredients:

250g bread, a mixture of white and wholemeal is good

200g mixed dried fruit or mixture of sultanas and currants or 200g mincemeat

50g dark chocolate chips

40g mixed peel

300ml semi skimmed milk

1 egg, beaten

50g demerara or dark brown sugar

4 Lemon Spice Drops

6 Mulling Spices Spice Drops

50g butter, melted

Method:

Tear the bread into a large mixing bowl and add the dried fruit or mincemeat, chocolate chips, mixed peel and mixed spice. Add the milk. 

Mix with a wooden spoon scrunch through your fingers to combine everything and to break up the bread. 

Add the egg, sugar and Lemon Spice Drops® and Mulling Spices Spice Drops®. Stir well, then set aside for 15 minutes to allow the bread to soak all the flavours.

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4. Butter and line the base of a 20cm non-stick square cake tin. 

Stir the melted butter into the bread pudding mixture. 

Then tip into the tin. Bake for 1 hour or until firm and golden brown. Check half way through cooking. If the pudding starts to brown too much, you can cover it with foil and continue to bake. Turn out of the tin and strip off the paper. 

Cut into squares and serve warm with a drizzling of single cream.
