I have made this for charity stalls/coffee mornings and there are always more people wanting than slices to be bought!!!

A clever way to use stale bread to make a lovely cake/pudding.

Here it is:

8oz bread ( I use my own saving ends in freezer)

1/2pint milk

Dried fruit I use 6/8oz

4oz sugar ( soft brown is good if you have, if not any sugar)

2oz butter( softened in saucepan or microwave) Can use margarine..But butter better taste!

ground mixed spice 1 heaped Tablespoon or to taste.

1Egg

Ground nutmeg

4 Tablespoons of milk

METHOD,

Soak the broken up bread in 1/2 PINT of milk leave till soft ( 1/2 hour app) or will happily sit till you are ready.

Mix in  dried fruit, Spice, Butter,Sugar, egg and  4 Tablespoons of milk. 

Beat well together with a wooden spoon.

Then place in a greased dish. Level the top and sprinkle of Nutmeg to taste.

Bake in oven 180C/350 F/ gas mark 4 for about 45 mins until set.

When set I sprinkle a little vanilla sugar on top ( vanilla pods stored with sugar in my glass jar)

This recipe is so good that I never make this tiny amount But always double up!!!!!!!

Hope this help someone?

Warm wishes from Pam

Pam, you say you have made some of your recipes for charity stalls etc.

Have you any more 'traybake'-type recipes?

I had some stale bread and some left-over de-frosted blackberries , blueberries and some cream...looked up Bread Pudding in my Shaker Cookery Book. It's a really interesting book as the Shakers enjoyed good food and adapted lots of old recipes brought with them from the UK for use in their new life, making the most of the fresh farm produce.

This recipe was simple and divine, they made it with cherries but I used my left over fruits. Soak the bread in the cream. When soft mush it up with beaten egg. Add vanilla and sugar and the soft fruit and stir. Put into a dish, sprinkle the top with more vanilla sugar and bake...this lasted a very short time indeed. Gone way before bedtime.

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/
