Bread & Butter Pudding Recipe (without needing weighing scales!)

On maternity leave, all I want to do is bake.

I have a real 'homely' need to be cracking on with a cake or a casserole and recently I have been going nuts craving Yorkshire Tea Loaf.

The one downside is that I don't own weighing scales.

Shock, horror! I can hear the gasps already... "a mum without kitchen scales, what, what??" LOL Working full time, I just never had to need to have scales 'tis all.

Anyway, after my divine date on Friday night and the to-die-for pannetone pudding, I had a right old hankering for bread and butter pudding this weekend and thought 'sod it - I'm guna try it!' and I did, all without scales or a jug - I just played it by ear.

What you need:
> A dish!
> Bread
> Butter
> Sultanas
> Sugar
> Milk
> Eggs

What to do:
> Butter the bread and line the dish.
> Sprinkle with sugar and sultanas.
> Repeat!
> Mix milk (I did about half a litre -ish) with eggs (I did 2 medium) and pour over the bread and fruit
> Whack it in the oven on Gas Mark 6 for approx 45 mins (or until the custard is cooked/set/not runny!)

I served it with ice cream and bloody loved it! Carson didn't, he hated it. But that's no reflection on my cooking - I hope - he doesn't like sultanas in food, only on their own. He says they 'explode juice' in his mouth. *Clings to hope that my cooking is not that bad*

If you have any recipes or links to recipes you'd like to share, that do not include needing scales, I'd love to read them please.... or you may simply send scales to PO Box... lol :-)
