- Sugar (brown if possible)
Bread pudding is an old favourite and nothing could be easier to make. Simply slice your old bread, cut off the crusts if you like (traditionally they did this), cut into triangles or other attractive shapes, arrange in an oven proof dish in layers, sprinkling each layer with sugar. Beat the eggs with the milk using about 1 egg for every quater pint of milk. Dust over with a generous amount of nutmeg and put into the oven until the centre is firm. Cook in a low oven.
