I have learned a delicious recipe here in France for Bread and Butter Pudding and though I do not know the exact quantities for the ingredients, it is easy to figure out.
– We used two stale baguettes and cut them into half-inch slices
– milk (app. one and a half cups)
– cream (app. one cup)
– two eggs
– sugar (app. half a cup)
– any dried fruits
Spread butter thinly over all of the slices of bread and then stack them in an oven dish. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and then pour over bread. The mixture should cover three-fourths of the bread (if it doesn’t add more milk until so), and add dried fruits. Let it soak up the mixture for a couple of hours until the bread is soggy. Bake on 350 for about thirty minutes or until light brown on top. It is truly wonderful! I made another one tonight and used raisins and dried apricots and sprinkled it with cinnamon.
