I normally dont like Bread & Butter pudding just because it looks weird and has prunes and raisins in it. YUCK. But saw this recipe on Come Dine with Me tonight and thought it looked interesting, even if it was incredibly fatty and terrible for you (the good things *ALWAYS* are)
- 1 large loaf white sliced bread
- 250g butter, softened
- 200g bar milk chocolate, broken into squares
- 3 large free-range eggs
- 25g caster sugar, plus 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 350ml milk
- 250ml Irish cream liqueur, such as Baileys
- 300ml double cream
- Double mixed with a little more liqueur, to serve
Method: How to make chocolate and Irish liqueur bread and butter pudding
1. Cut the crusts off the bread and spread with butter. Cut into triangles. Arrange half the triangles, slightly overlapping, into a well-buttered ovenproof dish. Place a piece of chocolate under each slice of bread.
2. Beat the eggs with the 25g caster sugar, milk and the cream liqueur. Pour half the mixture over the bread and press down lightly. Leave the bread to absorb the liquid for 10 minutes.
3. Top with the remaining bread triangles and pop a square of chocolate behind each piece as before. Pour the rest of the milk mixture over the bread and put in the fridge for a further 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas 4.
4. Sprinkle the pudding with the remaining 2 tbsp of sugar and bake for 30-40 minutes until the pudding is puffed up and golden brown. Stand for 5-10 minutes then serve warm with cream liqueur.
