Christmas Bread and Butter Pudding

For anyone with surplus mince pie filling, this would be a great option.

3 eggs
280 ml cream
55 ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50 grams granulated sugar
100 grams mince pie filling
50 g butter (preferably unsalted)
1 loaf brioche bread (or any sweet bread)

  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Beat eggs well with a ballon wire whisk.  Add sugar and beat well until sugar is well incorporated (tip: the lighter the colour of the egg-sugar mixture, the better).  Add the cream and vanilla and whisk well.  Set aside.
  • Slice brioche loaf into 16 slices.  This should form 8 pairs.  For each pair of brioche bread, spread one side with butter and the other slice with the mince pie filling (NOTE: the more generous you are with the mince pie filling, the sweeter the pudding will be).  Arrange sandwiches in a well-buttered baking pan.
  • Pour the milk and egg mixture over the bread slices.  Allow the milk and egg mixture to be absorbed (if you leave the bread for about 5 mins, this will give it time to absorb the milk and egg mixture).
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

Catching up

I haven’t been writing anything recently.  The ideas are in my head but I need to write them down!

The past several weeks have been crazy busy!  The day job has been eating into the time I’ve put away to work on the dream job and I’m getting really frustrated!  I really need to make time to write.  I need to make sure I make the time because I really want to work on my recipes and my writing.  Dear God please give me time…or at least one of those Harry Potter time turner thingmebobs that Hermione used!  That would be incredibly handy!

Fingers crossed I am able to write this weekend!  If I do get to do that, I will write up a storm!
