Chocolate & Raisin Bread & Butter Pudding - an Easy Classic Dessert

It's an classic dessert, the humble bread and butter pudding, very English, or shall we say, very Australian.

Great for the cool wet days and I happenned to have 3/4 loaf of my normal Eggy Loaf left so before I make another loaf of bread, I decided to use it in a dessert tonight.

Chocolate & Raisin Bread & Butter Pudding

1/2 Cup Raisin
100g dark chocolate (I use 70% cocoa Lindt's)
50g softened Butter - enough to butter all slices of bread
600ml Milk
4 eggs
12 Slices of Bread (it can be white bread, raisin loaf etc)
2 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 tsp cinnamon powder
4 tbsp raw sugar
2 tbsp rum
1 tbsp golden syrup

Grease an Oven dish (mine is oval, 18cm X 25cms).
Remove crust, butter both sides of bread, lay one layer at the bottom of the dish.
Layer with dark chocolate squares and raisins.
Lay the rest of bread covering the chocolate and raisins layer.
Whisk eggs, whisk in sugar and mix very well, add milk, rum, vanilla essence and cinnamon powder.
Pour over bread and drizzle the golden syrup on top.
Bake in pre-heated oven - 180C for 45 min or till golden.

Serve with Vanilla Icecream....
