I'm one of those weird people who doesn't mind when the cold weather turns up. I actually just like the variety in the seasons. Seasonal clothes, seasonal food. But what I love about winter apart from sitting in front of the fire and wearing one of my favourite coats is making casseroles, saucy dishes and puddings.
This recipe is an easy one, and I had Laura help me, Kids can make this if you let them use some electrical appliances or you can just help with the one bit that requires one. You don't have to use white bread - you can use raisin or fruit bread it would be equally delicious. This is the only thing I ever use white bread for - and you are a grainy bread family like ours, you need to make an exception here.
Ingredients: (serves 8)
9 slices white bread
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
2 tsp cinnamon powder
Preheat oven to 190 degrees c fan forced
Cut up bread in thirds like below:
With your butter, grease a large baking dish
And them place the bread in the dish - kind of in a patchwork pattern.
In a bowl, whisk eggs, cream, vanilla together until well combined.
Pour the mix over the bread evenly. Squoosh it down with your hands to ensure everything is soaked into each piece of bread.
Put your butter, flour, sugars and cinnamon in food processor (you could combine these with a fork or whisk if you wanted but it's much easier work with a food processor)
and pulse until your mix resembles wet sand.
Crumble over the top of the bread.
Bake for 50 minutes, it will be soft and sweet inside and crunchy cinnamon topping. You are allowed to drool at this point.
Serve with cream or icecream.
