From Martha Stewart Living March 2001. Allowing bread to soak in custard batter for a full hour is the secret to a good bread-and-butter pudding.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, and rum. Set aside.
  2. Spread the 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 bread slices in one layer. (It is also fine for bread to overlap randomly.) Pour egg mixture over bread, and let stand 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 400º. Sprinkle pudding with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake until puffed and golden brown, and pudding has set, about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine strawberries with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Let stand while pudding bakes. Serve strawberries with baked pudding.
