Bread and Butter Pudding

K made the bread and butter pudding yesterday.  It was delicious.  The recipe was adapted from the Panettone pudding on BBC Good Food.  She used multigrain bread and added mixed fruit, citrus peel and cinnamon. The pudding is best with old bread.  Simple to make. Quite like our Double ka Meetha without the deep frying and the ghee.  It has its share of calories.  But somehow it is light and easy to have as a end of meal dessert.

Ingredients - 
Butter - 50 gms - K used salted butter, and it only added to the taste.
Bread slices - 8 nos
Eggs - 2
Cream - 140 gms
Milk - 225 ml
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Caster Sugar - 2 tbsp
Icing sugar for dusting
Cinnamon- 1/4 tsp
Cream to serve ( optional) - did not use
Raisins/Dry fruits/ Candied orange peel - as per taste.

Grease a shallow dish with butter
Preheat oven to 160C
Cut the slices diagonally or in wedges.  Keep the crusts on
Butter one side of the bread, lightly
Arrange the slices with the buttered side facing up

In a bowl, whisk milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cream well.
Pour over the slices arranged in the bowl.  Add the raisins.

Put the dish in a round shallow plate with hot water.
Bake for 35 minutes
The top should be golden.

Dust the top with icing sugar

Serve with cream.
