30g butter, plus extra for greasing
12 slices of bread
2tsp MA’s Cinnamon Powder
300ml whole milk
¼ tsp MA’s Nutmeg, grated to taste
Grease a deep oven proof dish with butter.
Cut the crusts off the bread. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread & cut diagonally.
On the bottom of the dish, arrange a layer of bread with the buttered-side up. Sprinkle a layer of sultanas & cinnamon.
Repeat the layers of bread, sultanas and cinnamon, until the dish is full. Finish with a layer of bread.
In a pan, heat milk and cream. Don't let it boil.
Crack the eggs into a bowl, add three quarters of the sugar and lightly whisk until pale.
Add warm milk and cream mixture and stir well, then strain into a bowl.
Pour the milk and egg mixture over the bread layers and sprinkle with nutmeg and remaining sugar.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. Place the dish into the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
