250 ml water
75g butter, cut into even pieces
150g plain flour
3 eggs
1 pinch salt

Water and butter in a pan, place over low heat and bring to a simmer
when the butter has melted and the water has come to the boil, shoot the flour into the liquid all at once. Stir over a steady heat until the mixture comes together into a coherent mass and leaves the sides of the saucepan ( word for word from a book )
Transfer to a bigger bowl and let it  cool for a minute or , and then
Add in 3 eggs ( with a pinch of salt )- which was beaten lightly with a fork., bit by bit, beating either with by hand or an electric mixer until even.
continue to add the eggs until the mixture reaches a smooth , stiff dropping consistency. The batter is now ready for use.

bake 200C- 20 minutes

( note: make sure you get the ingredients right, i learnt my lesson when I accidentally miscount the eggs. It didn't rise !!!!but don't panic, it is still within me, i have done it......hehe...learn from your mistake )

1 tbsp custard
1 tbsp corn flour
3-4 tbsp sugar ( i prefer 3 only)
1 cup fresh milk
1 egg or 2 egg yolks
1 tbsp butter.

8 pieces of white bread - cut into triangle, spread butter on each slice
lay the pieces in a baking dish ( greased with butter too,toavoid it from sticking)

spread raisins ( about 50g) on the bread slices.

meanwhile, heat up 3 cups of milk in a pan ( but not to boiling point)

in another bowl, whisk 5 eggs and 100g sugar,
pour onto the milk ,mix well and then pour on to the bread. Leave for about 10 minutes ( soak the bread)

sprinkle some sugar on top before baking.
Bake in a pre heated oven ( water bath method )  at 175C for 35 minutes

I made this yesterday,on the 6th day of Ramadhan, this evening I saw two other vesions of howtomakethis bread andbutter pudding,one is called Bread peanut Butter Pudding ( Anna Olson ) and bread andApple Puddingby our very own topChef, Dato' Chef Wan. They both look appealing. I might try tomake their versions some other day ( I wonder when that 'some  othee day' will be. It took me quite sometimetoeven make thistraditional versionof the good old Breas andButter pudding.
I like things the traditional way, traditional applepie, traditional trifle and traditional B&B pudding
