Bread & Butter Pudding.

Wednesday 17th August 2011

“Hello Mum. It’s Jon.”

“Hello love. Are you having a nice time?”

“Yup, it’s all going well.”

“You all egg bound yet?”

“Nope not yet, I’m working on it though.”

“Ha ha ha…”

“I’m ringing to find out how to make the sauce for bread & butter pudding. I’ve got as far as buttering the bread, putting it in the dish and sprinkling the raisins on top, but I can’t remember the egg & milk mix.”

“Well, it’s all according to how big your dish is really. I usually do 2 eggs, 1 yolk and about a pint of milk. And then the sugar.”

“Oh, you put the sugar in with the eggs & milk?”


“Oops, I’ve already put it on top!”

“That won’t matter. Push all your bread down into the liquid so it soaks it up. If you find that it doesn’t look like it’s enough then put in another egg & some milk.”

“So it’s 2 eggs, 1 yolk & a pint of milk. Cool, I’ll give it a go. Have a look on the blog tomorrow.”

“Alright love, will do. I’ll get Daddy to go on there.”

“Alright Mum, I’ll speak to you later.”

“Ok, have a lovely time. Love you darling.”

“Yeah, love you too Mum. Bye.”

“Yeah bye love.”

I ended up using 4 eggs & 1 yolk with 900ml of soya milk.

It started as a collaborative project between Zeph & I but after he had buttered all the bread, he lost interest.

Qué será, será. 🙂

  1. Mmm…One of my favorite things. My boys and I made one with our leftover cornbread this week. They don’t call it comfort food for nothing.
