Dolly's Bread Pudding

This is my Mum's Bread Pudding, from the Wartime Years and those which followed. Made from whatever was in the larder at the time, here's the basic recipe.  It brings back SO many memories!

 

Ingredients:

10 ozs stale bread

2 ozs margarine or butter

1 oz sugar

2 ozs mixed fruit (sultanas / raisins)

1 oz mixed peel

1 egg

Milk to mix

2 teaspoons cocoa (for colouring)

Spices to taste - cinnamon / mixed spice

Extra sugar for topping

 

Method:

Put bread in a basin and add a little water. Leave for 10 minutes. Squeeze water opuit of bread till it is fairly dry. Add all other ingredients except the spices, adding milk to make a sticky consistency. Add spice to taste.

 

Place mixture in a greased pan and cook at 160 degrees C for an hour till the edges are brown and the centre is moist. Sprinkle sugar on top 10 minutes from the end of the cooking time. Cool a little before serving.

 

Serves 8 - 10.

 

My Mum added "extras" - like a spoonful of jam or marmalade, perhaps.  A pudding to experiment with - what could be better?!

Mmm, was it because there were '24 men kicking a ball' that it didn't end entirely satisfactorily???

Jaqui I think your grandchildren are very lucky. You have spurred me on to write a letter to Amelia who like Hazel is away from home for the first time. 💕
