A delicious twist on the classic bread and butter pudding. this is simple recipe but one that will have you coming back for seconds and thirds

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
unsalted butter, plus extra, for greasing
500ml milk
1 tablespoon chai spice
150g pitted dates
10 slices day-old bread, cut into triangles and crusts removed
3 eggs
55g caster sugar, plus extra, for sprinkling

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Butter a 2 litre baking dish.
  2. Combine the milk and chai spice in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes for the flavours to infuse. Strain the hot milk over the dates and leave to stand for 15–20 minutes. Strain, and reserve the milk and dates separately.
  3. Butter the bread and arrange in overlapping rows in the baking dish. Mix the eggs with the caster sugar and the infused milk and pour over the bread. Allow to stand for 10–15 minutes, then push the bread into the custard to soak up even more of the mixture. Scatter on the dates, tucking them under the bread as necessary.
  4. Sprinkle 1–2 tablespoons of caster sugar over the top of the pudding and bake in the oven for 40–45 minutes. When ready, it will be puffed and golden.
