In a large bowl add the eggs and whisk well until uniform and mixed
Add sugar and whisk again to mix
Add milk and whisk again
Add vanilla extract and mix well
In a large pot on low temp pour the mix in and cook very slowly moving all the time so it doesn’t stick to the bottom, This should only take 5 minutes just to dissolve the sugar, (don’t boil it).
Once this has just warmed remove from heat and set aside.
You will need 2 baking dishes, the first needs to be larger so that the second fits inside.
Holding the smaller dish inside the larger dish add enough water to the larger dish to come half way up the sides of the smaller dish, This prevents the pudding burning while cooking
Then butter the smaller dish ready for the mix.
Add mix to smaller dish
Place bread on top, buttered side up, I do two layers, completely cover the top with two layers.
Press down on the bread with a fork to absorb the milk into the bread.
When the bread is well soaked, sprinkle liberally with nutmeg.
Place in preheated oven for 40 minutes at 150 deg C
Check after 20 minutes, then at 40 minutes. Check with skewer and if it comes out clean its cooked.
