We made this the other day.
Simple ingredients. Simple to make.
[Based on Hamlyn’s ‘200 really easy recipes’ book]
Anya and Vai were happy that they ‘took part in the making’ too! (ie. Mixing the ingredients =)
Anyway, here’s the recipe:
4 slices of white bread
50g unsalted butter
50g sultanas (we skipped this one, didn’t have any at the time)
Grated rind of 1 lemon (we used half)
300ml single cream + 300ml milk, or 600ml milk (we used 600ml milk)
2 eggs + 2 egg yolks
25g granulated sugar (We used white fine grain sugar)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1-2 tablespoons jelly marmalade, heated (we used strawberry jam)
1. Spread the butter slices with butter, cut each into 4 triangles, place a layer of bread in the base of a greased (buttered) pie dish. Sprinkle lemon rind over the top and cover with remaining bread triangles.
2. Beat the milk (and cream, if using), with the eggs, egg yolks and sugar in a bowl. Pour mixture over the bread. Cover and leave to stand for 30 minutes
3. Sprinkle the nutmeg over the surface and bake in a preheated oven, 180deg C, for 30-40 minutes
4. Remove from the oven, brush the hot marmalade over the top. Serve hot.
