Sure looks good enough to ask for recipe! I'm asking!! Thanks.
This is about the best way I can explain how I make a bread pudding.
I think the next time I make it I shall have to take more notice of how much of what I put in it...... ;-)))
There are so many ways to make a bread pudding, in the U Sthey make what they call bread pudding, but that is what we call inUK bread and butter pudding. similar ingredients, assembled a bitdifferent, it has more of an egg custard in it.Also there is no real recipe for bread pudding English style it isa combination of, some sort of crumb, either bread either wholewheat or white, hot cross buns, raisin bread, panettone or similar,that is then soaked in milk then squeezed out......To the wet crumbs add eggs, dried fruit of your choice though usualis currants and sultanas, brown sugar to taste, melted butter tolubricate it a bit, and spices, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. placein buttered dish and bake 400 about 1 hour depending on the sugarcontent, the finished product is like a heavy fruit cake.I can tell you that almost all English men love bread pudding(aka wet Nelly)
This isn't exact as i just add this and that, but basiclly I had about 1 pound of crumbs, added 3 eggs, about a cup milk,currants and sultanas, 1/2 cup melted butter, (salted) and spice totaste...... It is usually forked across the top of the pudding torough it a bit and then a generous shake of coarse white sugarapplied when cold. qahtan
Oh Qahtan, that brings back memories of my Mom's bread pudding! Great stick to the ribs food, just the job for the cold wet days. She also made a suet dough which she drizzled with golden syrup (treacle)and baked, and I imagine the bread pudding contained suet instead of butter. I don't remember any eggs, though. Bread pudding and Bird's custard, yum, A.
My daughter always asked Nanny to make her "white thing" thats what she called it.
;-)))) but Canary pudding, sponge pudding steamed in a basin lined with syrup is also lovely...... qahtan
Many thanks for the info Qahtan. Will definitely do this one.
