Using white bread quartered, butter lightly every slice ( before dicing ) put marmalade on every 2nd slice, add raisins scattered between slices, mix 2 eggs, 1/2 tablespoon vanilla, 1/2 nutmeg, 1/2 cup caster sugar, & two cups of full fat milk, pour over bread till well soaked, top off with some more raisins, place in preheated oven & cook for 40 min @ 180, check after 30 min, serve with custard, & ice cream, Hmmmm
My daughter shared this recipe with me and I am so glad she did. We both made it the same day. I had all the ingredients and it was easy to make. I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg, brown sugar. It is so delicious. I sprinkled some confectioner's sugar on top. Pinned it already! Thank you for sharing. PS Baked for 55 mins, small convection oven.
Ovens differ; I baked it 35 minutes and prep time took a little longer because I crushed some walnuts and cubed the bread smaller.
This recipe was easy & tasted yummy...I'm back today to make it again! The first time I used rye bread & white bread (what I had on hand) and dried cranberries. This tiem I'm using whole wheat bread & a couple english muffins that need to be used up.
I would cook this only about 40 minutes.
