Leftover Cake Cake

I have blogged this recipe before, but it's so useful that I thought I'd blog it again :o)

approx. 3 cups of  leftover cake (I use home-made fruit cake)  - crumbed in processor or just broken into small bits

then mix together:
2 cups of milk
3 beaten eggs
1/2 cup of demerara sugar - a little less sugar, if cake used is very sweet
pinch of salt

Place the cake pieces in a large mixing bowl.- and pour over the 'custard' mix - mush* down well ...... (*technical term)
If you have added more cake, you may need to add a little more milk.
Pour into a buttered baking dish and pat down well

Bake for at least 30 - 45 mins. at 180/190 deg.C -  until cake is 'set' and looks cooked.  (Sorry I cant be more specific, but it depends on how much cake and liquid you have used,) ................... it's really good and rather like bread pudding.

Oh dear. Bread pudding made with cake just sounds too sinfully good.
