Recipe: Bread and butter pudding

With a fab recipe on every page, the 2012 Dairy Diary is a must for foodies. We have five delightful dishes to get you through January

What you'll need

1 cooking apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

½ lemon, juice only

50g butter

6 slices white bread or currant loaf, crusts removed

50g sultanas

40g demerara sugar

3 eggs

600 ml milk

Serves 6

Dip apple slices in lemon juice to prevent them discolouring. Butter bread and place three slices in base and up sides of a 1.2 litre ovenproof dish. Scatter over the sultanas.

Spread apple slices across the bread, alternating with remaining bread — butter side up — cut into triangles. Sprinkle with sugar.

Beat together the eggs and milk, pour over pudding and stand for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 190°C/gas 5/375°F. Stand dish in a roasting tin filled 2.5cm deep with warm water. Bake for one hour or until crisp and golden.
