Instructions

Preheat the oven to 320F.

To make the pudding,

  1. heat the cream and milk in a heavy-based
    pan over a low heat, then add the sugar, vanilla essence, eggs and melted
    butter to the pan. Using a wooden spoon, mix well together and simmer until the
    sauce thickens.
  2. Meanwhile, line a medium sized, deep baking tray with parchment paper. Slice
    the bread into square shapes and dip each piece into the cream mix until soaked
    through.
     
  3. Layer the bread onto the baking tray, with a sprinkle of sultanas, raisins and
    dried fruit in between each slice.
  4. When the bread is all used, pour the
    remaining mixture all over the tray.
  5. Cover the baking tray with parchment paper
    and place the baking tray in the oven.
  6. Bake for 1 hour, then remove the paper,
    and cook for another 15 minutes until the top is golden.

    To make the whiskey sauce:
  7. In a small pan, heat together the syrup, sugars and
    butter until melted. When the sauce starts to bubble, turn down the heat to low
    and whisk the cream into the hot mixture.
  8. Raise the heat again until the
    mixture begins to bubble, then take off the heat and add whiskey to serve.
