Jamaican Bread Pudding
9 to 10 Slices of bread
1 cup Dried fruit (raisins etc.)
3 tbsp Mixed peels.
1/2 cup Brown sugar
4 tsp. Mixed spices
1/4 cup Soft butter or Margarine
Caster or Powdered sugar for sprinkling
Grease a 7-inch or 18cm round cake pan or
6-inch. square pan or over proof dish. Soak the
bread in cold water for at least 30 minutes.
Squeeze the bread by hand or in a sieve to expel
as much water as possible, then beat with a fork
to remove any lumps.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix
thoroughly. Put the mixture into the greased pan
or dish and bake in a moderately hot oven for
about 1 1/2 hours.
On completion sprinkle
liberally with castor or powdered sugar,
excellent when served hot with custard or cold
with ice cream, or simply eat to your delight.
