Butter, enough to spread the bread
100 g Raisins

PREPARATION (FOR 8 PORTIONS)
for golden bread pudding
Generously spread butter onto each the slice of bread and cut into quarters. Arrange the slices butter side up into a greased, shallow oven-proof dish.
In a bowl mix together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla essence and cinnamon.
Pour the custard over the bread and scatter the raisins evenly throughout.
Leave to stand for a few minutes to allow the custard to soak into the bread.
Bake at 180C for approximately 45 minutes or until the custard is set and golden brown.
Sprinkle more sugar and cinnamon over the top before serving with vanilla custard or ice-cream.
Tip: This recipe also works with brown bread or high fibre bread.
