I've just emailed this recipe to one of my Mini Friends, Susan and I thought I'd share it with everyone, in case anyone else would like to make it.
If you do, please let me know how it turns out.
I double this recipe when I'm making it, otherwise I get moaned at cause there's never enough.
8oz or 225g Stale Bread
5oz or 110g Currants, Raisins or Sultanas. (You can use a mixture of all three or what ever you have in the cupboard).
2oz or 50g Brown Sugar
Half a Teaspoon of Mixed Spice
Preheat your Oven to Gas Mark 3, 170c.
Tear Bread into small pieces and soak in Cold water for one hour.
Strain the bread and squeeze out as much as possible.
Place the bread into a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the fruit, Sugar and mixed spice, mix together well.
Add the egg and as much milk as necessary to make the mixture sticky but not too wet. It should drop easily from a spoon.
Pour the mixture into a well greased baking tray, spread out and sprinkle the Surface with more Brown sugar.
Bake in the Oven for 1 Hour.
Check after one hour that the pudding is cooked by pushing a knife into the middle. The knife should come out clean. If necessary cook for a further 15 minutes.
Once the pudding as cooled down, sprinkle with Granulated Sugar..
The pudding stores well wrapped in Foil. (not that it lasts very long in this house)...
