Just Like I've Promised...

Custard Sauce

The Bread and Butter Pudding

Today, I just felt like winning a 100-metre race, simply because I have done my homework in a 2-hour marathon. I felt like a burden has just been lifted from me. So, what else to do than blogging about this recipe. God knows, how happy I am now- finally been able to think straight... ;) Just like I've promised before.. my whole-meal bread and butter pudding recipe (which was originally from Nigella Lawson). This bread and butter pudding is definitely a star on its own. It is certainly not an ordinary bread and butter pudding. There's a hint of English taste of this pudding. Give it a try and you'll definitely know what it means to be in a baking heaven....
The recipe for the pudding
What you need;
75g unsalted butter
3 tbsp of orange juice
75g sultanas
1 loaf of whole-meal bread (originally brown bread)
Half of bottle of Ginger and orange conserve (marmalade)-
I have used the St Dalfour brand of jam in this recipe
4 egg yolks
1 egg
3tbsp of caster sugar
200ml full-fat fresh milk ( skimmed milk will not do - I'm sorry)
500ml double cream ( I have used UHT whipping cream - ARLA or Emborg brand)
1 tsp of ground ginger (you can use fresh grated ginger)
2tbsp demerara sugar (abundant in the UK, unfortunately please use brown sugar here in Malaysia)
1) Grease pudding dish with not so expensive butter. Unsalted is quite expensive
here in Malaysia (unfortunately)
2) Soak sultanas with orange juice ( 15-20 mins or until they really plumped up)
3) Sandwich bread, butter and jam
4) Cut your sandwiches into triangles, arrange evenly
5) Sprinkle sultanas over the sandwiches, together with the soaked up-juices
6) Whisk egg yolks and egg with caster sugar- pour into bread sandwiches
7) Pour in the cream and milk
8) Smear the bread crust with soft butter, mix the ground ginger and demerara (brown) sugar.
9)Lastly bake the pudding in a pre-heated oven of 120C, for about 20-30 mins.
10) Test if it's ready by putting a skewer inside , it should come out clean.
Custard Sauce
275ml double/single cream -whipping cream is okay
3 egg yolks
1tsp corn flour
1 tsp caster sugar
2 drops of vanilla
1) Heat cream in a small saucepan or non stick pot.
2) Whisk egg yolks, cornflour, sugar and vanilla in a bowl.
3) Pour hot cream into the bowl. Stirring.
4) Return mixture to the saucepan.
5) Heat gently until thick. Use wooden spoon to stir your custard cream slowly. Make sure it
does not curdle.
6) Use low-temperature heat...
You can eat this pudding with vanilla ice-cream or this custard sauce.
Have a scoop of pudding, everyone.... ;)
