Monmouth Pudding - Pwdin Mynwy

In Victorina times, bread based puddings were regarded as ideal fare for children and for adults with delicate digestion. Monmouth Pudding reveals bold red and white stripes when served. This is a Welsh favorite!

1 oz butter
2 tablespoons sugar
Grated rind of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups milk
6 slices of fresh white bread torn into small pieces
3 egg yolks
4-5 tablespoons strawberry jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the milk in a saucepan, add the butter, sugar and lemon rind and bring to a boil. Put the breadcrumbs in a bowl and pour hot milk over them. Allow to cool and swell. Stir in egg yolks into the cooled mixture and then spread half the mixture into a greased, ovenproof dish. Melt the jam, pour half of it over the mixture, add the remaining breadcrumbs and finish with a layer of jam. Bake for 40-45 minutes until set.
Serves 4
