1½ cups/ 300 g Sugar

1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Mace (optional)
1 can chopped and diced Peaches (size of your choice depending on how much fruit you like in the pudding)
2 peeled, cored and chopped Apples

1. Preheat oven to 350 F / 180 C / Gas 4 and spray 13x9 rectangle pan w/vegetable spray. Melt stick of butter in pan and set aside.

2. Tear bread into small (not tiny) pieces, into a large mixing bowl.

3. Add milk to cover ¾ of the bread. Add eggs & sugar; mix well.

4. Add vanilla, nutmeg, mace & cinnamon; mix well.

5. Add apples, peaches & raisins (pecans if you are adding); mix well.

6. Pour the above mixture into pan with melted butter.

7. Bake for about 1 hour until golden brown.

To Make The Sauce:

1. In a small saucepan melt butter, add sugar & evaporated milk.

2. Stir constantly and bring to a rolling boil; cook on medium heat for 3-10 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened(mixture scorches easily).

3. When thickened and removed from heat, Add the vanilla extract. (when added over high or constant heat, vanilla evaporates).

4. Serve warm/hot over bread pudding. As this mixture cools, it becomes too thick to pour. I serve in a small microwave safe glass pot and reheat as necessary.

***If you are adding pecans to the sauce, add after melting butter and saute for a few minutes then pick up recipe instructions as above.
