4 large eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
3 drops vanilla
125g (4oz.) sultanas
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 pints milk (4 cups)
2 slices bread cut into 1" squares
Method: Beat sugar and eggs, add salt, beat the eggs into the cool milk. Pour mixture into an ovenproof dish, add sultanas and stir evenly on the bottom of pie dish. Cut bread into 1" squares and spread with butter, then place them on top of mixture with butter facing upwards. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake pudding in electric oven 100C (200F) or until light brown and firm. Stand pie dish in a pan of water whilst baking. If the family do not enjoy, the dogs love it. I was reared on it for 22 years.
