This is one of the desserts that I grew up with. A great way to use up that bread no one will eat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut bread into 4 triangles.
  2. Butter a pie dish that holds 1 1/2 pints liquid.
  3. Layer bread and dried fruit finishing with bread.
  4. Beat the eggs and sugar together.
  5. Pour in the hot milk and vanilla essence.
  6. Pour custard mix over bread layers and leave for 15 mins to allow the custard to soak into the bread.
  7. Bake in a moderate oven for 45 min or until the custard is set.
  8. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

This was good. I think the problem we had was the butter on the bread made it a little greasy. I think next time I make it, I will leave off the butter. When I do, I will come back and re-review. Thanks Kiwi!
