"Butter and Jam Bread Pudding"
serves 2-4

1/2 loaf good quality French bread

~~~
5 medium eggs

1/2 c half and half
1/2 cup sugar
pinch salt
pinch cinnamon
baby pinch clove
baby pinch ginger
1 t vanilla
~~~
mix all this together and when blended pour over bread to soak.
cover and set in frig for a few hours so bread has time to absorb the custard mixture.
preheat oven to 375
take out of frig, cover in foil and bake 15 minutes
take off foil, bake 15 minutes more
take out of oven foil cover and set aside.
~~~
"glaze"
3 T butter
3 T jam
1-2 T milk
pinch salt
3/4 c powdered sugar, plus more for after glazing

~~~
melt butter, add jam and stir to blend.
stir milk into powdered sugar add pinch salt stirring until you get a glaze.
stir the butter/jam mixture into the powdered sugar mix.
put onto low stove in saucepan and stir until thicker.
pour 1/2 of this mixture over top of bread pudding, follow that with 1/4 c of powdered sugar dusted on top of glaze.
preheat broiler, when ready, place bread pudding under and watch it while it lightly browns the sugar on top and slightly bubbles the glaze underneat. take out of oven/broiler,
let cool a couple of minutes and scoop out.
use a bit of left over glaze to drizzle over or
we like it with English style custard drizzled over it.

oh beginnerchef, I'm thrilled for you. I didn't use to like bread pudding of any kind but sometimes, just when you fool around with a recipe and tweek it a bit, it turns out wonderful, glad it worked for you and mostly I applaud you, there are several steps and looking at the recipe could scare some off
