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.
