The Degustation box is a new concept where you get a monthly subscription and each month you get a surprise box in the post. Its full of a number of random items and you don't know what's coming and it it changes each month. I was sent the February box with no idea what was going to be included.
I have been asked to make some recipes with the contents of the box, now this is really random group of products and very difficult to make anything, for instance there was energy drinks and apple crisps and biscuits but I thought I would try and make a bread-and-butter pudding using the ready sliced malt loaf Soreen Tostie Bread. We love malt loaf and now you can get it ready sliced and I thought it would make a really nice bread and butter pudding.
I buttered the slices of the Soreen Toastie Loaf and layered them in the baking dish.
Mixing 5 eggs with approximately 1 cup of milk and poured it over the slices.
I let the egg soak in for about 20 minutes before baking in the oven at 180o for about 45 minutes.
It was bubbling when I took it out of thre oven, let stand for about 5 minutes before serving and a quick dust with icing sugar makes it look very exotic.
This pudding would be lovely sliced and served with cream, ice cream, custard or even yoghurt.
