My old Granddad used to make the most amazing dessert that really hit the spot on a cold winter's night; Bread Pudding.
NOT the custardy gelatinous mass known as bread and butter pudding (blergh) but a bread pudding which you can slice up and have cold in a lunch box the next day.
You take your old odds and ends of bread and soak them in a bowl of water until they go soggy. Pour the lot into a colander lined with a tea towel and gently bring the ends up together and squeeze out the water. Put the dryish mix into a bowl with a couple of eggs, a good dash of mixed spice, a tablespoon of flour and a couple of grated spoon fuls of butter. A handful of sultanas or mixed dried fruit and two tablespoons of sugar.
Get your hands in and mix the whole lot squishing until it is well, mixed.
Put it into a greased dish and press down well. Bake it in a medium oven for an hour and then serve it up with some nice English custard.
I've also been known to add some chopped apples and a dash of cold tea to the mix if it looks a bit dry.
