Print this Recipe    Bread Pudding

8 oz (225 g) bread, either brown or white, crusts removed
1/2 pt (10 fl oz, 275 ml) milk
2 oz (50 g) butter, melted
3 oz Soft brown sugar
2 Level teaspoons mixed spice (recipe below)
1 Egg, beaten
6 oz (175 g) mixed fruit: currants, raisins, sultanas (golden raisins),
candied peel
Grated rind of half an orange
Freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 2-2 1/2 pint baking dish
(1.25-1.5 litre). Break the bread into suitable-sized pieces and
place them in a bowl. Pour over the milk, then give the mixture a
good stir and leave for about 30 minutes so that the bread becomes
well soaked with the milk. Now add the melted butter, sugar, mixed
spice and beaten egg. Using a fork, beat the mixture well, making
sure that no lumps remain, then stir in the mixed fruit and orange
rind. Spread in the baking dish, sprinkle with nutmeg and bake for
about 1 1/4 hours. Delicious hot or cold!

Mixed Spice

1 Cinnamon stick (3"), broken in small pieces
2 1/2 tsp. Allspice berries
1 Tbsp. Whole cloves
2 tsp. Freshly grated nutmeg
1 Tbsp. Ground ginger

Using a coffee grinder or blender, process cinnamon, allspice
berries and cloves until very finely ground. Add to freshly grated
nutmeg and ginger and mix well. Store in a small, airtight jar up
to 3 months.
