Butter Bread Pudding

I've got a french loaf sitting the the freezer for so long, I've forgotten when did I buy that.
So, to get rid of it, I made this beautiful butter bread pudding. A classic english pudding.

I didn't really plan to make this, so the currants were't well soaked and were a bit burnt. So please soak this in the custard for a while and pour them in together with the custard.

Overall, I quite like it, the sugary crust was delicious.

Butter Bread Pudding (serves 1-2, depends on who much one can eat)
Few slices of French loaf, about ¼ of a stick
Some butter softened for spreading
150ml milk
75ml whipping cream
1 egg
Few drops vanilla extract
3 tsp sugar
2 Tbsp currants or raisins

1. Spread butter over bread slices. Oh please be generous.
2. Arrange bread slices into a lightly buttered baking dish.
3. Sprinkle raisins or currants over.
4. Combine milk, whipping cream, vanilla and egg.
5. Pour ¾ of it over arranged bread. Sprinkle sugar over bread.
6. Let the bread soak for few minutes before pouring the rest of the egg mxture.
7. Bake in a preheated oven of 160C in a waterbath  for 40-45 minutes  or until a knife inserted comes out clean.

Let the bread soak and soak, then pour the balance of the custard in

    LOL, I think this is pretty common, as I read one of the most common bread puddings in UK.

    Chew Lee,
    You can do many variations with this. Maybe you can slather on some jam or marmalade besides butter for different taste.

  9. i love ur cup,where u buy the cups?i made the bread pudding before,i use the oval loaf pan,difficult to be share half to eat.

  10. Oilai,

    Well, I bought these baking cups here in KK.
    You can get some from Daiso, jsut make sure they are ovenproof.

  11. I made this recipe tonight and it was simply OUTSTANDING. Added extra vanilla and some cinnamon. Turned out amazingly creamy. Definitely a keeper!

  12. paisley,
    Thanks for the outstanding feedback :)

  13. Hi Wendy,
    you bought your ramekin in daiso KK ? I wan. Not sure Daiso singapore have them, will check this weekend.

  14. Kate,
    No, I bought this way before Daiso came to our shores at a budget store where they sell rejected and overstocks.
    BTW, KK is too small for Daiso to even look at us. There's no McD, here. Daiso only exists in KL.
