  • Add the beaten eggs and sugar to the milk and vanilla mixture, and pour over the bread.
  • Leave to soak for 30 minutes, then place the pie dish in a roasting tin and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the dish.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes Gas 4/180ºC/350ºF until set, golden brown and well risen.
  • Serve with custard, cream or ice-cream.
