1/3 cups sugar
2 cups milk
raisins or nuts optional
2 larges tbsps butter (I used homemade white butter)
8 bread slices, stale
1 tbsp cream
Grease your baking dish well. Butter slices on one side (or both if you like!) You can cut the crusts if you like, I don't want to waste them so I just let them be. Arrange them on your dish with the buttered slices up.
Sandwich raisins / nuts in between layers of bread till you finish.
Warm the milk upto scalding (not boiling) point. Break the egg, mix sugar till it dissolves. Add cream and mix well. Pour this on the bread slices. Place it in the oven. Set temp to 180 deg and bake for 30 mins or till top browns.
Serve warm or cold.
We had this for breakfast the next day and it tasted as good as it tasted warm.
I tried this with bananas sandwiched in between and even with peanut butter on one side and butter on the other. Tasted good with all combo. Try this to believe it!
