Allowing bread to soak in custard batter for a full hour is the secret to a good bread-and-butter pudding.Yields: 4 Ingredients 4 large eggs 3/4 c. milk 3/4 c. heavy cream 7 tbsp. sugar 2 tbsp. dark rum 8 slice white bread 4 tbsp. unsalted butter 1 pt. fresh strawberries Directions
- Whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, and rum. Set aside.
- Spread top of each slice of bread with generous amount of butter. Cut slices in half diagonally. In a 9-inch-round baking dish or cake pan, fan overlapping slices in one layer. It is also fine for bread to overlap randomly. Pour egg mixture over bread, and let stand 1 hour.
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Sprinkle pudding with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake until puffed and golden brown, and pudding has set, about 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine strawberries with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Let stand while pudding bakes. Serve strawberries with baked pudding.
