Moorish Bread and Butter Pudding

This is really a Christmassy Pudding, but good at any time of the year.

Bread and Butter Pudding

2 oz dried apricots

Good dash of brandy

12 thin slices buttered white bread

450gm jar mince meat

2 oz castor sugar
3 large eggs
¼ pint double cream
½ pint milk
Demerara sugar for topping

Butter a shallow ovenproof dish.
Cut the apricots into fairly small pieces and soak in the brandy.
Cut the crusts off the bread and make them into triangular mincemeat sandwiches cut into 4. Arrange these around the ovenproof dish and scatter the apricots over the top.
Beat the sugar, eggs, milk and cream together and pour over the bread.
Leave to soak for at least an hour, longer if you wish.
Sprinkle Demerara sugar over the top.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180o/gas4/fan 160o for approx 40 mins until crisp and golden.
Serve with crème fraiche or custard ( with some Bailey’s added to the custard)

Not sure which thread this belongs with.

Thanks, csalt. I love bread pudding and have a separate section in my recipe file devoted to bread puddings...sweet and savory. I'll have to try this one.

I promise you it really is good. Custard with a soupcon of some type of alcohol added makes a nice addition. But if you like creme fraiche that's jolly nice too.
I cannot make it at home because DH isn't a fan and guess who would have no trouble eating it all!!
