Recipe Ingredients:

8 slices (about 1-inch thick) day old home-style white bread
2 ounces (about 1/2 cup) sultanas (raisins)
Grated rind of one lemon
2 large eggs
Pinch of ground nutmeg or cinnamon
3 level tablespoons caster (granulated) sugar - divided use

Cooking Directions:

  1. Remove crusts and reserve for another use, if desired. Spread a thin layer of butter on the bread and cut into 1-inch cubes. Place in lightly-buttered overproof dish, with alternate layers of sultanas mixed with the grated lemon rind.
  2. Beat eggs lightly with 2 tablespoons of sugar, the nutmeg or cinnamon and the milk. Pour custard over bread cube mixture; sprinkle remaining sugar over the top.
