Easy Bread Pudding

This is my mum's tried and tested recipe for bread pudding  It's a simple recipe which kids can help make. Bread pudding is a great way to use up left over bread, it's low(ish) in fat and it's very economical to make.
  • 8 oz/225 g stale bread, broken into pieces
  • ½ pt/300 ml cold water
  • 3 oz/75 g soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 oz/100 g mixed dried fruit
  • ¼ pt/150 ml milk
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tbsp demerara sugar to sprinkle
Put the bread in a bowl and add the cold water.
Allow to soak for at least 1 hour.
Drain the bread and squeeze out the water, using your hands.
Mix the bread with the rest of the ingredients (except the demerara sugar).
Pour into a greased square baking tin.
Cook at 170C/160C Fan/Gas 3 for around 60 minutes until firm to the touch and brown on top.
Sprinkle with the demerara sugar while warm. 
Allow to cool in the tin, before cutting into squares. Serve warm or cold.

Suitable for freezing.
