Luxury bread and butter pudding

8 slices of fruit loaf cut into triangles

50g butter

20g currants

10g candied peel

10g glace cherries chopped

275ml milk

60 ml double cream

50g caster sugar

Grated zest of ½ lemon

3 eggs whisked

½ tsp. Goodall’s grated nutmeg

Butter the bread and cut each slice of buttered bread in half into a triangle shape – leaving the crusts on.

Arrange one layer of buttered bread over the base of the baking dish, sprinkle the candied peel and half the currants over, then cover with another layer of the bread slices and the remainder of the currants. 

Arranging the slices with their triangular points overlapping will a neat pattern.

Next, in a glass measuring jug, measure out the milk and add the double cream. Stir in the caster sugar and lemon zest.

Whisk the eggs, first on their own in a small basin and then into the milk mixture.

Pour the whole lot over the bread, sprinkle over the nutmeg, and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 180 degrees. Serve warm.
