This seems to be becoming trendy in restaurants/cafes around the place. Have seen variations of Pear & Maple Syrup, Pear & Berry.

ray mcvinnie did a lovely one with chocolate chips also using old french sticks. same method as the other ones but the chocolate chips makes it soo yum

#2 - 1 table spoon of sultanas is a bit mean!

I add dried apricots and cranberries, pre soaked in rum, (plus the sultanas of course) plus a bar of Cadbury's Caramello carefully placed so that each portion gets a bit of the choc!

Serve with clotted cream - or whipped cream I suppose, as clotted cream doesn't seem to be available. (Drat. )

Decadent maybe, but that is what hot winter desserts should be...

You can always use brioche or fruit bread too, not just French sticks or white bread.

The one I make the most is a Tamasin Day Lewis recipe. It uses a 600ml mix of full cream milk/cream, and 8 egg yolks but is extremely nice, hot or as cold leftovers. :o)

2 tsps mixed spice
1 egg, beaten
175g mixed dried fruit ( currants, raisins, sultanas, candied peel )
Grated rind of half an orange
Grated nutmeg

Break bread into pieces and soak in the milk for about 30 mins or until it is well soaked. Add butter, sugar, spice and egg and mix well, then stir in mixed fruit and orange rind.

Spread the mixture in a greased baking dish and sprinkle over some nutmeg ( freshly grated if possible ).

Bake at 180C for about 1 1/4 hours. Serve hot or cold.

Made this recipe using caramel filled doughnuts the nice long crunchy powdered ones from the bakery [brother brought way too many can only eat so much 30 left ] Sliced doughnuts x 15 into a oven dish then made a custardheat 4 cups of milk till not quite boiled, scalded, mix 4 egg yolks with 1 heaped tbsp sugar stir this into the milk then pour over the doughnuts leave to soak about half an hour. Bake in the oven till set. Whisk egg whites cover pudding mix then place under the grill to brown. Taste like doughnuts but oh so yummy.

I make little sandwiches - popping raspberry jam in the middle and cut them into quarters.I fit them into the dish and sprinkle with chocolate chips prior to adding the egg/milk/cream mix.

Alternatively you can use nutella to sandwich them!

Lookslike some yummy recipes here! I have also seen a recipe using slighly stale croissants which will make it quite rich along with the cream & eggs etc.

The best thing about B&B pudding is that there are soooo many yummy variations. I use apricot jam, a pinch of ginger powder and sultannas in mine.
