    Bread and Butter Pudding ...... too easy.

    Well, easy enough for those with an oven. For the rest of you, go and have a beer or something or just look out the window.

    I did a trial run of this a few weeks back and although I skimped on everything it was still mighty tasty. So now, here's the no holds barred recipe.

    First...the ingredients. This will vary depending on the size of your dish but for me it was :

    2 eggs
    8 slices of cheap Thai bread
    2 tablespoons of sugar
    1 packet of raisins
    About half a pint of milk
    butter
    Vanilla essence. ( optional )
    Cinamon powder ( optional )



    And here's the cheapo Zanussi oven from Carrefour .....only 9000 baht.



    And heres the nice ceramic teflon coated baking dish bought from the Mall for a mere 55 baht.




    First, butter your bread ( 8 slices for me but use as many as it takes ) cut the slices in half and line your baking dish with them, butter side down. (takes 5 slices )




    Chuck in half your packet of raisins :




    Next, put your 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a few drops of vanilla essence into a bowl and stir in. The vanilla essence is optional but the smell it makes in the oven is an absolute killer....even the Thai neighbours enjoyed the smell.



    Next , mix in about half a pint or more of milk in with the eggs and sugar. Don't skimp here as the bread really soaks up the milk. You're aiming to cover the base and still have about half an inch of the mix covering the top so use as much milk as necessary.



    You don't have to beat it too much as you're not tring to get a lot of air in the mix. Once its ready, pour the whole lot over the base.

    Now, for the remaining 3 slices of bread and butter, cut each slice into 4 quarters and press them down into the mix that is now floating on top of your base. I push them down until the mix runs over the top of each slice and gives them a good soak.

    Finaly , shake the rest of the packet of raisins over the top , sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the surface and give a gentle dusting of cinnamon powder over everything.



    Now the whole lot goes in a preheated oven. If you have a very powerful oven, 20 minutes might be enough. In the zanussi it takes about 45 minutes as its not so hot. Either way, take a look in from time to time and remove from the oven when it starts turning golden brown.....thus :




    Now , when it cools down a bit serve with a little cream. Absolutely lovely.

    I should say that normaly , my culinary experiments find Ms Bangyai having urgent business elsewhere but this time even she wanted to be the first to taste it and gave it the thumbs up. She lives yet !!

    I forgot to mention that the above recipe is what I'd call a dry version, as the mix is mostly soaked up by the bread.

    My mother used to make the wet version. Here, she wouldn't bother with a base at all but would just use half the amount of bread floated on top of the egg and milk mix. This gave a kind of crispy bread top covering a kind of blamange textured pudding.

    You pays yer money and takes yer choice

    Ooo. long way from Bangyai. Thanks anyway. There's a Villa about 15 k from here maybe they'll have it. Sounds like a bargain and a lot less effort

    Use a toaster oven. Then you can also make cookies, garlic toast, pizza bread, whatever an oven does but smaller portions.
    I've cooked puds on the hob: put the covered pud bowl in a big pot filled with 1/3 water, first bring to a boil, then turn down to a very slow boil. Ensure the water doesn't boil away. Takes longer and no crispy top, but it works. Can't remember the timing, but I'd reckon an hour?

    Making this too. Will go for marmalade or maybe strawberry jam on the bread instead of raisins.

    Never had it before. Does it keep in a fridge okay and reheated in the microwave after a day or two?

    Yep, should keep for a few days.

    We do it here at the restaurant served with a bourbon sauce. Bloody lovely. Not had it in a while but every time I do, I feel like just going for a straight cup of the sauce.

    On special offer at the Mall at the moment. Not actually a tin, just an ordinary dish but definately non stick. When I turned off the oven the pudding had already floated clear of the base !!

    Looks great.

    but you do not need an oven. I cooked the same thing on my microwave oven, nice and slow, then finished it off on the 'convection' setting, but it works just as well on microwave only, but go slow!!

    I think it might come out better if you break the bread up in small pieces. that's the way i use to make it back in California.

    If you use tin milk and half water it will be much richer and creamer

    Wasn't this originally made with stale bread? Probably best to dry the bread out in the sun first then it will soak up more liquid.

    That looks fantastic and is on my "to cook" list when I get back from my 6 week UK trip.
    Where did you buy such a good Teflon coated dish for a mere 55 baht?
