Bread and Butter Pudding is an old familiar favourite. As with most recipes of this nature, we've gone ahead and given it a little "real food" makeover.

Ingredients:
  • 12 slices of either Sunflower and Raisin Bread or Date and Walnut Bread - toasted and buttered
  • 1 tablespoon of orange rind
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut sugar or organic rapadura sugar 
  • 1 cup of milk - we choose organic 
  • 1 cup of cream - we choose organic
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius

Butter a 5 - 6cm deep oven dish - one with a 1 litre capacity

Toast and butter slices of bread

Arrange in your prepared dish as pictured above

Scatter with orange rind

Mix eggs, sugar, milk, cream and vanilla and pour over bread

Allow to sit for 15 mins, so that the bread can soak up some of the milk mixture

Sprinkle with a little sugar

Bake for 35 - 40 minutes

Allow to settle for 10 minutes before serving
