Bread and Butter Custard



This dessert is a delicious family favorite in the Caribbean. I used a cardamom infused evaporated milk for a richer flavor but unfortunately thats hard to find unless your in the Middle East. You can always just add a dash of cardamom to the recipe. You can even add other dried fruits to this savory dish.

6 slices white bread, crust removed
6 tablespoons butter
170 grams evaporated milk
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
powdered sugar for top

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter an 8x8 baking dish. Cube slices of bread then add into dish. Add butter slices all over top of bread. In a medium sized mixing bowl add evaporated milk, milk, cinnamon, sugar, eggs and nutmeg, mix well. Carefully pour on top of bread into baking pan.Sprinkle raisins on top. Allow to sit for 30 minutes in refrigerator. Place into oven and bake for 35 minutes.

Yields: 4 servings
