  2. 3 ounces sultanas (85g)
  3. 4 ounces brown sugar (113g)
  4. 3 cups whole milk
  5. 3 large eggs, beaten
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  8. ½ teaspoon salt
  9. butter (for buttering the bread and greasing the baking dish)


  1. Preaheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C)
  2. Grease an oven proof baking dish.
  3. Evenly butter each of the slices of bread on both sides, then cut each slice into 4 triangles.
  4. Place a layer of the buttered bread on the bottom of the dish, slightly overlapping each triangle.
  5. Sprinkle sultanas and brown sugar evenly across the bread for the second layer.
  6. Continue layering bread then sultanas and brown sugar until all the bread is used.
  7. Sprinkle the top of the pudding with sultanas and sugar.
  8. Beat together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Pour this mixture on top of everything.Allow to stand for 30 minutes so the liquid is fully absorbed.
